Not my sister. And just playing with another new toy. Hopefully the weather forecast is horribly wrong and I get to Zealandia tomorrow.
FYI, that’s the end of my toy purchasing. For now. I have one more planned, but that has conditions that aren’t likely to be met before Christmas, so it’s going to wait.

More minuscule depth-of-field, this time of a flower I walked past while strolling home. I probably should have adjusted the colours a little in Lightroom, but I didn’t. So there.

This new toy (still no photos) isn’t only good at macro shots, though this is just some interesting light I saw at work today (it’s sunlight being reflected through a giant piece of perspex onto a wall, with a hanging light projecting a shadow onto the wall). It’s no “Lord of the (red) Rings” (that’s the 135 f/2, apparently), but it’s still an awesome piece of glass.
I’m still looking for models and concepts to shoot. I have time and transport now, so that helps a lot.

L lenses are so much better than kit lenses. Unless you have an L lens as a kit lens, in which case, lucky bugger.
This is what Masters students get up to. They don’t work. I drew the Sudoku graph when I was a Masters student.

The latest in the series “stuff that lives on my desk (a.k.a. playing with a new macro lens)”, this is a rubber with wheels.
I’ll take photos of my new toys sometime. I just need to take them off of my camera first. Which could happen tomorrow, as I’m taking a short lens up to Uni to pester the Masters students. We’ll see.

I have some money lying around. Still figuring out this macro photography stuff. Maybe I should tripod it up.

L lens is awesome. So is cake. Here’s something showing a little of both.

I have at least one new toy. It takes photos like that one. That’s a terrible photo, but it shows how incredibly tiny the depth-of-field is. I think I can focus even closer, making the depth-of-field even smaller.
I think I’ve been corrupted by mathematics in regards to hyphens. They’re everywhere!

There’s a chicken that lives out my window at work. Today, while waiting for Melissa to show up, I went outside and shot it.

I’ve been meaning to make this shot for a while now. It could do with a far more interesting sky (say a rainbow spanning the two towers), and maybe (shudder) a touch of HDR. And yes, the mosque is supposed to be out of focus, though that’s one of the things I’d change with HDR…
