My new baby.

It's called a *Lensbaby.
Specifically the Composer version.
And it is cool.

It swivels in a socket.

You can take cool pics with it! 
I am just learning to use it.
Here are a few shots I got with it recently.

It focuses in a specific "sweet spot" and the rest of the focus gets crazy!
And we are back to me and textures.
My new addiction. 
I just love this one even though I have not learned to focus that well with this lens.
(Another amazing present- Fiestaware!)
Okay so.....
...many people wonder what camera and lens I use so here we go! I have a Nikon d90 camera.  I still love love love my 50mm 1.4 Sigma lens! I use it a lot! I love the shallow depth of field I can get with it!
This is the lens I got with my D90 and it is my MOST used lens! The range of this 18-200mm Nikon lens is awesome! It takes such great pics! I cannot imagine living without it. 
And how did I get these cool pics of my gear?  I got a light tent for Christmas! YEAH! I love it! It will keep me busy all winter long taking pics of all kinds of STUFF! Just wait!
Here is one more with the lens baby.... clearly I need more practice but it is fun! This is an ornament a patron gave each of the staff at the library! Made from Popsicle sticks! How sweet is that?
