Braving The Cold For An Idea

This was the first year in a long time that we spent New Year’s Eve at home. One of the kids was not feeling well at night so we decided to play it safe and stay home. Ever since I have known my wife we have spent the night just outside of Lafayette with friends. We went out to visit on New Year’s Day for a while, and while everyone else was playing a card game I decided to try and make a picture of the horses on the property. Of course it was below zero so I did not try for very long. I did get one curious horse who played along and let me have some fun for a couple of minutes though.

The Canon 85mm f/1.2 Lens

My time with the Canon 85mm f/1.2 lens is almost up. I have really enjoyed playing around with it in various situations over the last couple of weeks. A great deal by LensRentals let me have it for half of the time for free. I don’t know that with what I shoot that I would need such a lens, but it has been fun playing around with it.  I take it back Thursday, and I am sure that it will be a sad day for me.

  1. I feel your cold, as it’s the same here in the Chicago area. I’m looking forward to the day when all the temperatures are above zero! 🙂
