I’m finding it really hard to focus right now…

There’s too much that needs to get done, and I can’t seem to concentrate today.

Apparently Saturday was a big day here on the blog… I got 117 visitors! that’s an all-time high here. haha! I hope you all found what you were searching for. Don’t know where you all came from, but hello! And I’m sorry it’s usually dreadfully boring around here. I feel now I should update more often. I know I say/write that a lot, but really I will try.

I got an early Christmas present. A Quantaray 18-50mm f3.5 wide angle lens. I read a few reviews online that weren’t too favorable, but for thirty dollars I figured it was worth a shot. Found it here.

Here’s what I’ve taken with the lens. Nothing spectacular… just a couple test shots.

Back in action!

Well, sort of. At least my car has been repaired. My job has switched over to winter hours extremely early this year, so I’m back to the 10 hour days. That kinda cuts into my time for photography a bit, since I don’t get home before 9pm most days. Hopefully it will only be a temporary thing, and once the “Summer Sale” is over I can go back to normal hours for another month or so. I wasn’t expecting for my summer to be cut short already!

Here’s one shot from that roll of film that was waiting to be developed when my car decided it was done working for a bit…. I mistakenly shot this roll at ISO 400, but it was actually 800 speed film, so its a bit washed out.  It also was crazy sunny that day, which probably didn’t help either. I did try to tweak it a little in PS. I kinda like it in this pic. One of those happy accidents I guess.

There’s another couple of new shots over in Traveling Gnome as well.
