I bought a 35mm f/1.8 prime lens for my camera, and spent a few minutes walking around the yard looking for something colorful as part of an experiment to see how pleasing or annoying the bokeh would be. I'm fairly pleased with the performance, especially considering the low cost of the lens. Plus, with the cropped sensor on my camera, the 35mm equates to approximately 50mm - a normal lens equal to the 50mm lens on my SLR all those years ago.

When I first moved to Florida in 1996, I didn't understand how people could possibly miss the "change of seasons" - especially with our lovely West Virginia January weather. After a while, I realized I really did miss the change of seasons, and made my way back home. Of course the grass is always greener and I am missing Florida right now. I found this weather data to cheer me up - proving that the 28 days in February will lead us to a beautiful spring, summer, and fall.
