Somehow this lens usually manages to transform normal afternoons into awesome photo shoot sessions with siblings. Constantly.
Oh, and those leisurely walks with friends? They also turn into never-ending photo shoots while meandering through. Every tree, rock, flower, and spot of delicious sunlight must be captured. As we ventured through a beautiful trail, each photo never ceased to dazzle me. The lighting, the depth, the color. Dear 50mm lens, I love you (and the lovely sun flares you create).
Oh, and it's always a perk to have a beautiful friends who are willing to have their picture taken a bazillion times! I wish I could share more of the photographs; however, I have countless favorites from this particular trek and never wish to bore you.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas time with family and friends. Now, to usher in the New Year, with all of it's charm.
Oh, but do take your time, New Year. Rushing never helped anyone.
