Saturday Snapshots #19


Celebration, December 2008

Strictly speaking, I guess this is not a 100% non-food photo…  But it just seemed like the right photo to bring the festive season to a close.  I also wanted to show off the results achieved with my new toy – a 50mm prime lens with a ridiculously large f1.8 aperture.  You can take flash-free photos in near darkness!  Everybody should have one of these.  Seriously.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs previously featured.

    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons bring
    the best to you and yours!

    Great shot Jeanne. Happy New Year. I’m glad you’ve said about the 1.8 lens. I’ve been tossing up between the 50M F1.4 and 50m F1.8. All reviews say the 1.8 is better but a couple of people have said they are happy with the 1.4. My SLR is a Nikon.

    That’s a beautiful flute, Jeanne! Is it allowed for you to say what kind of sparkling wine is pictured? (Instead of bubbly, we were radical and drank Gewurtztraminer on New Year’s Eve.)
    Happy New Year!!

    Lovely snapshot. My dream is an SLR camera with a macro lens but then I think that it might be too complicated for me to use so I stick to my point and shoot camera!!

  5. says

    Happy New Year to you too, Jeanne. You have rally started the new year on a good note with a lens like that. Was it you Christmas present or a gift to yourself….I am looking forward to all your beautiful photos and recipes for 2009.
