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:
Bells that date back to before I was born. I now have the family keepsake.
Mom made this ornament. I have several Mom-aments that are the first to go on the tree each year.
A gift from the Whites, many Christmases ago.
Irises. Looking from the dining room toward the living room and the Christmas tree.
Aunt Esther painted this ornament in the early 1980s. It’s been with me through a dozen moves, and is one of my favorites.
An oil painting from Brazil 2001.
Greek pillow cover.
I don’t recall who gave me this, but I love this rustic Santa.
In a living room mirror, this reflection of the dining room. At distance, this lens has no bokeh.
Window to the right of the fireplace.
Spider mums. Dining room table.
