So this week we had to do a new experience, go somewhere new, use a new photography technique, eat a new food. That kind of thing. Wish this one had been in a couple of weeks when Phil and I are off to Jedburgh, a new place for me, but hey-ho that’s how the cookie crumbles. So the extra credit this time was something from your bucket list. Well I’ve got a lensbaby lens on my bucket list, and as it’s my birthday soon, I thought I’d treat myself to a little one. The lensbaby Trio 28 has 3 lenses which give different effects, one where the pictures come out fuzzy around the edges, another one that gives everything a glow, and one that does a twisty bokeh. I have yet to experiment more, but managed to get the twisty to work on my umbrella plant.

I don’t expect it’ll win any prizes, but I’m just starting out with this one!

New lens, baby!

    Always nice to try out some new kit. Great photo too. Lensbabys are trick to master, so I’m told.

    (You might remember I get free stuff as an Amazon tester. Last week, I snagged one of these, complete with stand/remote. It’s the most expensive thing I have got for nothing off Amazon so far, and even pricier than a Lenovo laptop I got free in 2018.
    Still in the box, as I am waiting for the weather to cool down before I play with it.)

    Best wishes, Pete.

    I’ve been tempted by the lensbaby. Love the image and its circularity. Enjoy playing with it.

    I have no idea what a lensbaby is (sorry…I’m not so technical😅😅😅), but if you can make pictures like these with them, that’s just excellent! Also…nice to hear your birthday is coming up! Hope you will have a wonderful day ahead of you😊
