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 : )

I had just about got the timings down on this when my camera battery decided to run out. In hindsight a tripod would have been a better option but in all honesty I couldn’t be bothered to clear the kitchen table…

‘How nice those water droplets look on the washing line’ I thought to myself as I was making my breakfast this morning. So I took the opportunity to give them a quick snap.

Every year I struggle to get a decent shot of a poinsettia plant, so this year I thought I’d try to add some interest with a water drop (or two). Do I think it’s particularly a more interesting shot? No… Not really! But ho hum, another one in the bag

Sleeping on an air bed with a slow puncture = not cool. Especially when your boyfriend wakes you up at 2am to blow it up again. Bought a new air bed today, new bed will be here tomorrow.

The weather is being a bit warm! When I leave my house in the morning it’s cold, well it’s below 10 degrees anyway. By the time I leave work it’s above 20.

Super quick shot taken on my compact as I was going into town for Sheffield’s annual Tramline festival. Although this year the trams weren’t running through the town centre due to maintenance work…

Went to my mum and dad’s for a brief visit just to snap this coneflower 😛
After last nights festivities we didn’t get in until 2/3 o’clock, and I managed to lie in until 12 which is practically unheard of as I’m normally up really early!

50% done, in the bag, woop woop!
