So, again thank you so much for all the great advice and camera tips the other week. I made my decision fairly quickly after that. My original plan was to wait until December to get my new gear but once I had figured out what I wanted I couldn’t wait and placed my order. Now I’m waiting impatiently for my Canon 5D Mark II. Yay! Not the waiting part but the camera. I’m so excited as so many of you had so much good to say about it. I also went to check it out at a local camera store and they also gushed over it.
I also got the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens like planned and I’m excited to check out the difference between it and the 50mm f/1.8 I have now.
The second lens decision was the hardest one to make and I sure hope what I finally decided on will work out. After checking out several options live at the store I didn’t go for a zoom lens which I kind of thought I would but instead opted for a wide angle one, the Canon EF 24mm F2.8 IS USM.
So now I’m a lady in waiting, the 24mm lens was out of stock when I ordered and they waited for everything to be ready before shipping so it has taken longer than expected to arrive.
I should get it all TODAY!
The roses I got are still going strong. even as I write this on Sunday.
Look what I got in the mail! remember when I got all the Martha goodies? Turned out there was a legal issue with me entering in the competition because I’m not a US resident and they were sorry for the confusion and sent me a consolation gift. How sweet is that? With all this you’d think I’d be on Martha’s Christmas card list this year, haha!
First snow! I couldn’t get a good photo outside because it started snowing late at night but then Wille called me when he went into the bathroom to brush his teeth. Snow!
Twice a year we have a large dumpster in our neighborhood where we can drop off garden debris which is so great. Wille and I cleared the back yard on Friday night and I went to check on the frosty result on Saturday morning in my pj’s. Still some leaves to fall off the apple tree but I’ll just add them to the compost as they fall.
My friend Sanna and I had planed to got to a retro fair this weekend but it turned out to be cancelled so instead we went to Moderna Museet and saw the Picasso vs. Duchamp and the Wolfgang Tillmans exhibitions. We weren’t impressed but we did spend an awfully long time in the museum shop.
That was quite an eventful week for a change.
