This Is Gonna Be Fun!

March 15th, 2010 · 11 Comments

Yesterday I turned 47.  My sweet husband and kids totally surprised me with a new lens for my camera!

They gave it to me last night, so I haven’t had much time to play with it yet.  It’s the fastest lens I’ve ever had and I was able to shoot both of these photos hand held, indoors, without a flash!  I have a bunch of work to get done before I play, so hopefully I can be speedy! Happy Monday, everyone!
