My new 50mm lens (the one I was eagerly awaiting) came yesterday, just as we were leaving for dinner. I'm still getting the hang of it, but I really like it so far. It's very nice.
Normal things, like fences and flowers and frogs (okay, I don't see those every day) can become interesting again. You just have to change your focus. (Literally and figuratively.)
Just so you know, these are all unedited. Most of my photos are. I haven't got any expensive editing program, and the cheaper ones are often slow and tedious.
