Rose // 06 01 2022

As a special post Christmas treat to myself, I got serious lens-GAS (gear Acquisition Syndrome, basically when you want to buy something but you don’t really need it).
I spent ages looking at different lenses. Got convinced that I wanted the f0.95 that Fuji do. Talked myself out of that (As it’s £££). Wasn’t happy with the fact I’d not bought anything.
Spent a few more days tooing and froing with different prime lenses. Then came across the Venus Laowa 60mm 2:1 lens. For those not in the know, this means that the lens can portray objects 2x the size they are. So small objects will appear larger than they are.

I love a macro lens. So in my mind I justified this purchase.
I shall I add it to my 90mm and my 14mm macro lenses.
Because gal can never have enough macro lenses : )

This is yesterday’s photo. I was rather busy yesterday (Dying my hair purple and blue, exercise, went out for tea and drinks!) so I’m a day late with the photo. I’ve been quite busy of late, so I’ve ended up defaulting to flowers – one more week until the six week holidays so I should be able to mix it up a bit more then. I’m just grateful that I have so many flowers open in my garden to be able to default to them!

I’m not too sure when these popped up in my garden, but judging by the state of the petals it might have been a while ago. I only noticed them yesterday though; they are a late summer flower and they’ve been in my mum’s garden for a couple of months now but only just come out in mine : )

I have outdone myself today with naps (I’m an avid napper), today I have had 2 and totalled over 4 hours asleep. Some would consider this a waste of a day, I consider it a success! : P

Went to see my mum today who has had a bunion off – this was in one the bouquets she has been given : )
