If you don’t look at the date of this post, you won’t realize that I’m a day late. I got up this morning at 6:30 so I could take some photos of the first of the summer flowers (or maybe they are late Spring). Anyway it is really exciting when my plants begin to bloom. It is almost like seeing them for the first time – although I’ve had most of them for many years. Maybe that is one of the joys of aging – we sometimes forget what we have.
I also decided to try my Nikon 50mm lens again. When I first bought it I wasn’t sure I was going to like it or use it much. I almost sent it back but now I’m glad I didn’t. I tried it at the zoo yesterday for both some close-ups and some landscapes. It performed well for both. This morning I used it for my flowers and I’m really excited about the results.
