Lens Love

Oh yes I am, lovin' my new camera lens, that is!

My altogether spiffy, maddeningly complex,
worth every penny ( lots and lots of pennies! )
Nikon AF-S 50mm  f/1.4G lens.
Say that fast three times!

Just took a little tour around the farmhouse a couple of days ago,
and snapped a few quick ones... 

Crisp, clear, bright and beautiful!

Wanna know what else I'm loving?

See my lovely collection of enamelware pitchers?
Love 'em, can't get enough of 'em.

Which is why I was beyond THRILLED to win the pitcher on the far right
in the amazing giveaway over at Buckets of Burlap.

Thank you SO much Becky, I'm crazy about it!!!

I'll be back next week with more pics of the cottage,
and an upcoming giveaway, too!

Here's hoping you enjoy your weekend, my friends!

Thank you all SO much for the kind words on my Romantic Homes feature!!!

Actually, I thought your photos were pretty amazing before! And now, we get to see even better pixs? What more could we ask for? Well, actually next time your out my way, you are welcome to stop by Country Roads and take some photos. We've got some great backdrops for "said photos"! Have a nice week-end.

Take care, Sue

Gorgeous pics!
Maybe that's what
I needed...that lens.
I took a D5000 for a
spin but didn't feel
I did it justice.
Back to square one.
Hope you are having
a wonderful weekend, Anne!

I love your new photos. Looks like a great lens! Oh enamel ware pitchers are so cool. Have a great weekend.

Irene ~ RE~VINTAGED said...

It does a great job! Fabulous images! Time to upgrade to a decent camera again. Had an SLR that was fantastic for years but went back to a point and shoot digital and have never been happy. Just need the $$$$'s now. Its on my list!
Must have a look at 'yours'.

cindy said...

Wow! The pics are stunning! I found this professional photographer dude's site online that has lots of great info about Nikon DSLRs...That's what he uses. He works in the film industry with lighting and photography, so I've gleened alot of info just for my own wee canon :)

Always fun to visit over here....always loveliness.

Between You and Me said...

I have a NIKON...still don't know a ton about it...mine is a NIKON D5000...

Did you just sit down with your manual or did you take a class?

Laura @ 52 FLEA said...

love the enamelware! the pics are gorgeous. I can't wait to see more pics next week.

Rebecca said...

It would be so wasted on me, but one of these days I will get into it. Maybe after a class or two. It is something I used to do in high school, even had my own dark room down the basement. Of course my dad set it up and I used his. Anyway congratulations on the pitcher and it all looks wonderful


Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Lili said...

Ahhh your new lens is already busy at work, those shots are incredible Anne! I love the old enamelware too, but much prefer the pitchers to those nasty old "pee" pots. Oops, did I just type that?!! Yep I'm old enough to remember them first hand. xoxo ~Lili

Heaven's Walk said...

Did I hear you say that you were giving away a Nikon camera lens......?????

Your photos were always so awesome, Anne - but now they're even better. What kind of camera do you use with this new lens?

Oh, so you've got "FBPO" (french body pitcher obsession) too? lol! Between my FBPs and my grain sacks - I'm very easy to keep happy. lol!
