I promise no more lilies, after this one!

There’s something about this photo that I like. I think its the nifty pattern the fence bokeh makes in the background. And maybe the pop of color from the flowers against the gray of the fence. I wasn’t originally a bit fan of this one, but it has grown on me a bit.

I was all excited about having the day off, and was hoping to get out and do some shooting today, but alas it’s raining. So I’ll have to wait a bit to finish up that roll of film. But at least I got my oil changed, and I’ve been needing to do that for a while now. Guess I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon watching some TV with the katzen.

I’m also a bit torn on my upcoming dslr purchase. I’ve been saving for a Nikon D80, but I’ve been doing some research, and I’ve found the the D200 I can get used for a decent price. (for the body only, vs the D80 package). Its probably way more camera than I’ll ever need, BUT it will meter with my old manual Nikkor lenses. The D80 will work with those lenses as well, but it won’t meter. I’m not sure how much of a pain that will be for me, or if buying the D200 used is even a good idea. Although the site I saw it on, I have purchased from in the past, and they’ve been nothing short of fantastic, so I’m not terribly worried. Any comments or ideas are welcome. I need some major help with this decision.

Hello!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! I had a quiet night at home with The Boy, and the katzen. It was a much needed rest.

Got out and about with my Lensbaby this past week. I haven’t dusted that little guy off in a while, and thought it was about time I started using it again. I forgot how fun it was.

Here’s one of the shots I got with my LB, and theres a few more over in my Flickr gallery. Hopefully I’ll get some more up soon, but first I have to go develop some film.
