Wordless Wednesday: New Lens & Disco Tree

After much hemming and hawing, we finally decided to get a tree this year. I wanted a narrow tree becauase we’re having a party the day after Christmas and don’t want to fill up half of our small living room with a tree, but skinny trees are so hard to find in tree lots. Target had the perfect tree – a ridiculous apple green tinsel tree. If I’m going fake, I’m going all the way. And, I finally opened my new lens (50 mm 1.8) which isn’t fancy, but is certainly a step up from the kit lens I’m still using 8 months after getting my camera.

Tonight we decorated. I’m waiting for a full tree reveal until we get a topper and a skirt. The tree is so, so shiny, we decided to skip the lights. Seriously, you almost can’t tell. I love my disco tree.

    I just got the same lens. Although I haven’t been able to get my daughter to stay still long enough to get a shot like this.

    Hooray for Christmas trees!

    I love my 50 mm lens. I wish I had a 50 mm 1.4, but it is SO spendy. Maybe someday.
