I was tidying the garden and thought i'd give this a go with the leaves.
I got a new lens for my birthday and wanted to try it out.
Its a sigma 30mm, 1.4. The bokeh is very nice at the 1.4 end, really needed a model as trying to focus and take the shot i had to use a smaller aperature in the hopes that some of what i wanted was in focus too.
may repeat this later when my daughter gets home or any poor bugger who comes home first, lol
Hope you have great weekend, thanks to anyone for looking.

Why don't you buy the poor Girl a Hamster Tracy, instead of making her make do with a bunch of leaves ? Smile Well, I guess if she holds onto them long enough, they'll mulch down and make her hands feel really soft.
Have a lovely weekend you lot, all the best,

John Smile

You have a way of viewing simple things - and turning them into cracking images Tracy - and this is one of them. Love it.

Dave.
