    I just got an old minolta 50mm f1.7 in the mail last night. I didnt have much time to fiddle with it...but tried to get a few shots of the baby in the tub. This one turned out pretty cute...although I wish the tub was a different color ;)

    That's a gorgeous shot of Trixie the cat ;) It was nice out today so I took the lil one outside to play. I got a practice with the new lens a bit too. Got a few shots that I was happy with. I like the way the light is dancing on her head....and her silly expression.

    Ultimate cuteness. Don't think I've ever seen a dog with two blue eyes. - TF

    Can't beat the price-to-image quality ratio of the 50mm f/1.8...

    ...but, the manual focus ring is the worst in the industry :p


    Still, it's workable. In a changing-tires-with-heavy-winter-mittens kind of way :D

    Whoops, it would help if I attached the photo. How long have I been doing this?

    Looks like lots of fun, but also kind of scary from parents point of view.

    Or it could be called, Speed, a triple threat.

    No, I don't play hockey, and no, I don't sing, dance and act.

    But I did take some photos that meet the criteria for three different threads.

    These are self portraits.

    These are window light portraits.

    And, these were taken with my 50mm.

    D300, 50mm f1.4, ISO 200, f 5.6. Taken in my office, by a east facing window in the afternoon, handheld at arms length.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to post this in other threads. ;-)

    I wanted to bring back the 50mm thread so I went to the Chicago Auto Show with the lens and here are some pictures.

    Here is one of my favorite gal. It could have gone to the window light or the 50mm thread I put it here.

    Thanks Melissa, she has been my favorite subject for going on 37 years now. However the four grandsons do get their share of photographic attention these days.
