100mm f/2.8 macro

Thursday, December 24, 2009
I logged in to my Fidelity account the other day and was surprised to find that my stock options were actually worth some money! Since they expired in just a few months, I quickly cashed them out and (invested them in stable but high yielding mutual funds) (donated the proceeds to a charitable cause) pissed the money away on stuff that will support the Chinese economy.

I've wanted the 100mm f/2.8 macro lens for a while because I love taking pictures of bugs, and you need a good macro lens for pictures of bugs. Sadly I did not think of the fact that I'm ordering the lens in the middle of December when no bugs are out for the shooting.

I'll probably be uploading a bunch of photos over the next several days and weeks as I play with this. You'll be able to find them here.

I had to stare at the first one for a few minutes before I figured out what it is. Looks like you have a fun new toy. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
