Last week, I purchased a new Canon T5i to replace the one taken during the lamentable burglary. And I bought a fixed-50mm lens as well.
This lens is perfect for close-up shots in lower light, and because it’s so short, the depth of field allowance is minimal, meaning some lovely bokeh.
Here are some shots from home on Saturday:
Window to the right of the fireplace.
Aunt Esther painted this ornament in the early 1980s. It’s been with me through a dozen moves, and is one of my favorites.
Bells that date back to before I was born. I now have the family keepsake.
Irises. Looking from the dining room toward the living room and the Christmas tree.
Greek pillow cover.
In a living room mirror, this reflection of the dining room. At distance, this lens has no bokeh.
Spider mums. Dining room table.
A gift from the Whites, many Christmases ago.
An oil painting from Brazil 2001.
Mom made this ornament. I have several Mom-aments that are the first to go on the tree each year.
I don’t recall who gave me this, but I love this rustic Santa.
