New York City here we come!

Wille and I have booked flight tickets to NYC in April. It’ll be our third time there together. This time we have no particular plans. I want to do a bit of shopping and Wille just wants to wander around the city. I’m up for that! We’ll probably stay in Chelsea this time around but we haven’t booked a hotel yet. If you have any Chelsea tips, hotels, restaurants etc we’d love to here them!

New Camera


Yay, it’s here! My new Canon 5D Mark II is here! I’m broke but very happy!


I love the lenses I chose. This is the EF 50 mm 1:1.4. Love the depth of field possibilities of it. This I just snapped quickly from my armchair.



And here’s a quick sample of what the EF 24 mm 1:2.8 IS USM does with my living room. I haven’t had a lot of time to try it out properly yet, still reading the body manual but I think it will come in really handy.


It’s BIG. It’s HEAVY. I LOVE it.

Lady in Waiting


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!
