A brand new lens

Yesterday I bought a new lens for our camera! We have a Nikon D40 and I bought an AF-S Nikkor 35mm f1.8 prime lens. I already love it, and did a mini photo essay of my mom's loft for your (and my) enjoyment.

I made this dog for my mom when I was little. She still has him and even glued his tail back on when it broke off.

Doesn't my mom have the nicest place?!

That's all! Have a great weekend!


  1. Wow, you have one stylish Mom!!! And a terrific lens — I love the shallow depth of field, the brightness. Looking forward to new listings with great product shots? :)

  2. AWESOME shots!!! Ooh, I want this lens. Want, want, want!

    And I agree with mchen, super styling mom you get there.


  3. Your mum does have a very cool place!

    And congratulations on the new glass. Prime lenses == amazing fun! I seem to be stuck on my 30mm f/1.4 as well (I shoot canon, so 30mm is closer to 50mm for me).

  4. Ah your mom's loft....I almost got to see it once...almost. Alas I only got as far as the lobby.
    P.S That Dog is ADORABLE!

  5. thanks guys! i know, i feel like i get to live in a hotel when i come home, and guess what - she even has a murphy bed that i sleep in - what can i say, i taught her everything she knows ;)

  6. Yes the murphy bed is most excellent. Who has that these days?

    leave it to A Callard...ha! that goes both ways.

  7. Very nice pics, and I love the little dog and the fact that your mom still keeps it ;O)
