ISO 125, 1/500, f/2.8  – 50mm

Who says you can’t capture shots like these without a macro lens?  Yes…there might be some noises emanating from your lens due to the auto-focusing but hey…YOU CAN DO IT!   And yes, there is a difference in bokeh between the 50mm f/1.8 II and the 85mm f/1.8.  If you look really closely, the bokeh circles are slightly hexagonal (is that a word?) in the 50mm although it still produces fantastic photos and is a powerful little lens!  One day I’ll do a comparison.


These guys are living and thriving in my sister’s backyard right now.  There used to be six and now there are only two, maybe three?  Hopefully we’ll be able to watch these guys through the rest of the stages of metamorphosis.  It is amazing how cool these guys are yet it makes me shiver looking at them because of their many legs.  Reminds me of that worm thing in Dune!  Teeehhee who remembers that movie?!  Sci-fi movies are fascinating to me!




For all of you that are not in the know, Riptide Magazine is the premier magazine for bodyboarders, or the proper term, spongers. And they have chosen to feature Mr. Bora’s art on their website! How exciting is that?! They also included a short interview with him and a few pieces of art. I’m not sure if they are going to print this in the actual magazine but it’s definitely a big deal for us to see his artwork on the main page on their website. Thanks Riptide!
