10 on 10: August

It is my birthday this week. My husband gave me an amazing gift: a new Canon 5Diii with a 35mm 1.4Lii.  I have always wanted a 35mm lens and I cried when I opened it. I had some fun with it right away, and now I really want to get to know them both better.


My babies were kind enough to let me practice on them yesterday morning.





They are so sweet together and love each other so much.


They bought these “&” necklaces for each other. It is to remind them that they are never alone.


I also played with my new lens in the back yard.  The details this beauty can capture are divine.






I can’t wait to get to know the camera and lens better.  I know it will take time, but the time it will take will sure be fun!


I am doing this project of telling a story in ten photographs with some lovely photographers.  Hop on over to the talented Maite’s blog and then click on through the blog roll.
