First photos with my Lensbaby Sweet 35

Lensbaby recently had a great sale on their tilt shift lenses, so I picked up a Sweet 35 Optic. The lens does not communicate electronically with the camera body, so you have to adjust the settings and focus manually. Needless to say, there is a bit of a learning curve and it’s quite challenging to get the focus just right, but I’m having a lot of fun experimenting with it!

Stunning Sky

My Nikon DSLR camera was recalled, so it’s been in the shop getting repaired. 😦 In the meantime, I’ve been using my good old iPhone to take pictures. Here are a few of my favorites from the past week:

~ stunning morning sky

~ first bloom thanks to all the recent rain

~ girls’ first science fair project (learning about osmosis by evaluating the effect of water on the size of gummy candies!)

Photos, including my first gallery wall

I’ve been having so much fun taking pictures lately… thanks for looking!
