When people ask me if I’m into photography I explain to them that it’s not a “passion” exactly but I take pictures every single day. So by default of doing it so much and wanting my photographs to look nice, I have kind of gotten into it. I’m not motivated to go out and take a class or spend time just playing around with my camera but I do want to take better pictures and keep improving my knowledge and skills around photography. Does that make any sense at all?
“This updated classic with a fast maximum aperture is ideal for everyday shooting, perfect in low lighting situations and great for producing images with beautiful background blur (Bokeh). The AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G includes Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) for fast and precise autofocus, M/A Focus Mode Switch for seamless changes between manual and autofocus operation and an aspherical lens element for outstanding optical performance with high contrast.“
I have a lot of photo-worthy events coming up in the coming weeks so the timing was perfect. Once I made the decision to buy the lens, I couldn’t even wait for it to be shipped and delivered so I did the buy online, in store pick up thing from Best Buy. I can’t wait to play with my new lens! It’s definitely giving me a little incentive to spend more time on my photography.
Do you enjoy photography? And what’s your favorite lens to shoot with?
In other news…
I drank some juice that tasted like dirt yesterday morning. Carrot, kale and ginger. Sounds appetizing, was not appetizing. At least Sullie is cute in the background.
Tuesday’s WOD was awesome – “Running Elizabeth!” Cleans are one of my very favorite movements and I always love running WODs. Our strength work before the WOD was 5 sets of 5 deficit deadlifts. I can’t tell you the last time I deadlifted (not my favorite movement!) so I was proud that I worked up to 115 and felt really good about my form.
It’s been late nights at the gym this week so meals have been more assembly than cooking. Last night I made a great burrito bowl with cilantro-lime rice, black beans, slaw, rotisserie tequila lime chicken from Whole Foods, avocado, sour cream and salsa. I wish you could see all of the layers in the photograph.
And packed lunch today was another bowl combination but this one was much different than last night’s. I started with a bed of power greens (baby kale, chard and spinach) and then topped it with lentils and quinoa that were tossed with tomatoes, olives, avocado and red wine vinegar, sauteed tofu, goat cheese, spinach and artichoke hummus and sour cream.
Have a great day!
