One of the many things that I am grateful about is my set of online friends. They are my set of “kabarkada” who are always there even if I have not met most of them yet. We can talk and discuss about anything and everything, mostly women and mommy stuff. We share the same passions: scrapbooking, photography and being the best moms and wives to our respective kids and husbands. We’re all women so topics like make-up, shopping, sexy lingerie, romantic novels and books also come out.
In them, I have the best and most efficient consultants in the world. A month ago, I needed advice and guidance on what lens to buy (though I am already eyeing something). The decision must be made 30 or so minutes. Don’t ask me why. Haha! I logged on Twitter (our usual hang-out), asked for their opinions and in no time, made a decision and had my money sent for the purchase. A very, very good friend bought the lens plus a remote control for me. He arrived home last Black Friday and handed me these:
An AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens and a Nikon remote control! Woot! Diane is sooo right, I am very much enjoy using this lens. And with the remote? “We can now have family pictures!” according to DD. Haha! Thanks to my girl friends and to Kuya Ric and of course to DH for being so supportive of this vice, errr, hobby of mine. ;)
Here’s a sample shot featuring my cousin’s DS who came to visit us last night. (Love the depth of field!)
Good thing he’s still small and does not mind being photographed unlike his older sister and DD who used to be so obedient and pose whenever I asked them. They’re growing up fast and now start to hate the cam. Hay.
And this new lens made me take this shot:
I see you! ;)
