On Monday I got an new toy, an Edge 50 optic for my Lensbaby, yesterday I took it out for a test run (walk). It wasn’t ideal weather for photography but I’d owned it for two whole days without trying it so I couldn’t wait any longer!
I’ve had a Lensbaby for quite a number of years now and although I don’t use it anywhere near as often as I’d like to – although that’s going to change this year – I’m used to how it works and I generally know what sort of shot it’s going to be suited to. Well the Edge 50 is a whole different thing, it’s like starting all over again.
So I walked, and I took pictures, some I’m fairly happy with but none are amazing. I found baubles hanging on pine trees on the edge of the woods which were lovely. And then I fell in the mud which was definitely less than lovely! Hopefully my shoes will dry out in a day or two.
And whilst the pictures aren’t fantastic they do represent the start of my “Year With Unconventional Lenses” so I’m sharing them anyway.
I’m really pleased that I can combine my photography challenge with my #walk1000miles challenge, I feel like I’m making extra efficient use of my time and still enjoying myself!
And I’ve only another 958 miles to go….
(For anyone who hasn’t come across Lensbabies before and is wondering what they are the Lensbaby website explains them much better than I can!)
