Remember last friday when I watched Away We Go and took some ‘magic hour’ photo. Well, what I didn’t tell you is that I finally broke down and splurged on a new camera lens. This camera lens. It’s been on my need want list for quite some time and something just clicked, so, without thinking, I ordered it.

Above are some of my favorite shots over the past week. I am literally in love with this lens. Its just brilliant. Everything I know about photography is self taught and I’m not sure if these photos are even considered ‘good’. But you know what, I love them. And honestly, I think that’s all that really matters.

Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. Thanks for letting me share my photos.

    Yep, you did good buying that lens. I’m taking notes for when I have money. Also, tell me you didn’t cut up part of that tablecloth for your jar toppers. LOL! I have a lot of catching up to do with your blog. It’s been a hot and busy Summer so far!

    Hey Michael… Love the picture of the flower from the hen and chick… I took a pic of mine too… I didn’t even know they bloomed like that! So pretty!

    Lovely photos and I agree… as long as we like them ourselves, what else should matter? My fav’ is the comfy kitty one. 🙂

    Oh how lovely! I have a fondness for grasses, and admit that I’m loathe to pull some of the prettier ones from the garden…The ones that turn brown and look like crap can bite me, but those pretty little lacy ones make me happier than is really reasonable! Carry on, oh charming one!
