new lens eye candy

I’m completely enamoured of my new lens. To celebrate, some random photos! Mostly flowers, because, well, they make awesome subjects. I really need to practice with some yarn though!

my first macro!

japanese-y flowers

forget me nots

Some new plain ribbed socks out of Regia Cotton on the go:

mmm, macro

And my favourite of the day, a dandelion – the prettiest annoying weed there is.

me too!

P.S. In case you missed it in the last post, the lens I got is a Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.5!

    Love your flower pictures. I read a fact yesterday that a dandelion has over 100 seeds in each of those lovely puffballs! That’s a lot of dandelions! :)

    Gorgeous pictures. Also, now inspired to make a giant granny square afghan. Talk about an easy stashbusting, TV watching/book reading project.

    But my question is: what’s the plant with pink flowers and red leaves. That’s just gorgeous.

    I don’t think you could have gotten a better lens. What kind of camera do you have? I want one of those lenses for my Canon.

    Amazing photos. It’s probably wrong of me, but as soon as you mentioned the need to practice on some yarn I was, “yeah, and excuse to buy more yarn!”

    Umm, yes, yarn shopping is habit forming.

    Even though I’m horribly allergic to dandelion fluff, that picture is gorgeous!

    I love the forget- me- not shot.
    They are the most romantic flower….

    That is one magic lens – not to mention the talented eyes behind it. I look forward to lots of awesome yarn photos in the future – although I would not say no to more flowers either. Looking at the flowers, I feel like I am there.

    Oh, and the new cardigan looks pretty awesome as well. I need to make myself a sweater soon – this one will go on my list!
