snapshots of my week – 3rd may

wow, it’s may already! i have actually been productive this week, unlike last week where i did very little.

i found my old 28mm vintage lens (which i took yesterdays outfit post with, and all of these) and with the crop factor on my 450d equates it to about 45mm, close enough to 50mm (heard of a ‘nifty fifty’?) for my needs. 50mm lenses are often called normal lenses, because they’re very close to what the human eye sees and has quite a good range when it comes to field of view. if you want to read a little more about crop factor & look at a useful comparison chart, click here. i can only use manual focus with it, but i’ve always preferred that anyway, and i think i might be using this lens from now on instead of the one that came with my camera.

i sorted through my little jewellery pot and found these little bits & bobs i forgot i had! a little crystal heart, two butterfly brooches (how did i forget about these? i love them!) and 3 dice. i don’t know why the dice were in with earrings and brooches, but they were a nice little surprise!

pink flower photo taken using free lensing technique

i remembered about free lensing. these were the only two that were somewhat decent, but i’m going to practice so i can take more. there’s a wonderful post about free-lensing on a beautiful mess.

i painted a stick. i know that doesn’t sound interesting but it’s a nice relaxing thing to do, plus it’s a free bit of decor for your house. always finding nice sticks when i’m out for walks, so i’m sure i’ll be painting some more soon.

and i made lots of pom poms! there’ll be a super quick DIY up next week.
