A New Toy…

I have a lovely new toy to play with – a Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens. It was instant love – I’m going to be using this lens a lot. I don’t have an unlimited budget and some macro lenses can be very expensive as I’m sure all you photographers out there know! So for a reasonable price this was a great macro lens for me to start off with and I’m not disappointed.

I love the creative shallow depth of field you get at f/2.8

Lots more images with this lens to follow… ♥

Vintage Cotton Reel - DIB

Both images are vintage treasures! The 1st image is of some antique post cards about 100 years old. They’re topped with lavender and tied with string! They are messages from the past… a glimpse into the lives of people who lived in a very different world.

The second image is a vintage cotton reel (spool) from my mother’s sewing box. It’s well over 50 years old – they don’t make them like this any more!
