I'm in love...

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but I recently acquired a 50mm lens for my camera. (I totally had to sell myself for it...but nonetheless, it is now mine!! I am, however, a photo slave to my husband's business because of it...)

I'm in love. If I could marry it, I would.

But I can't, I'm already married. Speaking of love...I *heart* Tootsie Rolls. They remind me of my Sam's Club angel.

I totally LOVE the shots I'm getting...but, can someone explain to me what's up with this:

You know, besides "orbs" and possibilities of "paranormal activity" that are coming out of my tree stump?

And's not:

I'm cornfused. I don't get it.


  1. Oh I'm sure it's just a ghost. I mean, it's really the only logical explanation.

  2. Don't know about your ghost, but I love my 50mm lens also. I love being able to capture moments when my kids don't know they're in the camera!

  3. Did you change angles? That is strange. I get weird light spots sometimes too... those darn orbs. I just blame the lighting.
    But I do love the lens, I've been wanting a new one myself but can't convince "someone" I need it!

  4. Definitely some ghosts... lol. No other explanation.

  5. I have no idea but I sure do love the shots of the kiddos! I want one :-)

  6. Were you taking the picture from outside or in? What lens is it?

  7. That's the next lens I want to get. I'm trying to sell my husband on the idea. Did you get the 1.8 f-stop or the 1.4 f-stop? I want the more expensive 1.4. Your pics are great. Don't know about the orbs of light though.

  8. When I first saw the pics, before I read your next line. I thought, "Orbs. Totally orbs." Funny. Probably some light getting throught the leaves. ?

  9. no idea. maybe the light??? filter???

  10. Behold the power of a great lens. And a good eye behind it. Congrats on your new fun toy!

  11. I can't remember if I've ever commented on your blog before, but I've been following it for quite a while. Can't even remember how I got here the first time.

    Anyway ... Did you move, change the angle, or take the picture at different times during the day? (Even 15 minutes or less apart?) Just last week I was trying to take some pics, and the place I needed to be to get the composition right was giving me sun spots on my pictures. I waited 30-45 minutes, and the sun had moved just enough so that the angle I was shooting from didn't give me spots anymore. Of course those spots were yellow and not green. The spots look like some kind of reflection or light issue to me. Just a thought!

  12. If I had to guess it's probably light reflection. I would recommend putting a basic polarization filter on your lens!

  13. dust particles from outdoor shooting on your lens reflecting light?

    or orbs

  14. I am DYING to get my 50 mm lens. It's next on my list.

    I'm going to guess that it's some light streaming through the leaves of the tree. Probably just the angle you were shooting.

  15. I think it is dust in your camera. When you change lenses, dust enters the inside even if you do this very quickly and swiftly. It tends to show more when more light in your shot. Hence the difference above.
    Nothing to worry that much about, but after a while you might want to clean it if you feel confident enough or ask someone in your camera shop to do it.

    I love the shots with the 50mm though.

    Have fun. xxx

  16. Cute pics! I'm just figuring out how to use our macro. So fun!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
