Too Much Fun....What's that Mean? And a Photography ??

We got back from our whirlwind trip to Florida on Thursday in the wee hours (picture to come soon - too many to count) and unpacked just in time to welcome fun Ithaca friends we haven't seen in years. Anna came up from Raleigh, NC with her two cute-as-can-be boys to experience farm life and we delivered it all - including small animal auctions, chicken parties and life (and death) on the farm. Stories to come soon.

In the meantime, check out these shots that randomly happened while we were in Florida. I made a new but feels old friend through my little sis and she happened to want to take our pictures and who am I to say no? I think they rock but even better, I got to pick this awesome girlies photo brain for 5 hours. I need a new, actually, I need 2 new lenses so I want some advice.

What lenses do you all that play with pictures use daily and what lenses can't you do without? I want a portrait lenses that will go down to f1.4 but I'm debating the cheaper on at f1.8. Advice? Opinions? Also, I need a zoom lenses but not sure if I need 200 or 300 and if I'm willing to fork out the mulla for the Image Stabilizer? Advice? Opinions?


  1. Love the pictures of Elias. What lens/camera was she using?

    My birthday is this week and I want a new lens, oh and I new base. Brian says they are out of his budget. I will have to start charging people to be able to afford them. Too bad I already have a career.

  2. Lynn, get the 1.4. Then you'll never have upgrade, ever!!! Love you guys, xoxo

  3. I have a 50 mm 1.8 lens that I do most of my shots with, and I love it.

    I have a 70-300 mm macro lens for zoom pictures, and I love it too. I got in and a 28-70mm lens on amazon as a bundle for less than $200.

  4. I have a CAnon fixed 50mm portrait lens f1.4... its GREAT but my favouriite lens by far is my 17 - 40mm wide angle L series Canon. Its a beauty!
