Some Pretty Bokeh

I've been getting a little bored with my photography lately, I really want to see all those beautiful leaves and flowers that everyone else seems to have but that is just not happening right now.  So I decided to pull out and dust off my good ol' 55-200 mm lens and give it a good workout.  

Wow, I really like the photos I took yesterday, look at all the delicious bokeh.

My husband smokes, which I'm not very fond of.  But he has to deal with my faults such as my procrastination, laziness, messiness, crabbiness, pessimism (I like to call it realism)....the list goes on.  We're both not perfect, and that's okay.

The neighbor's cat downstairs, she (or he, not sure) was being very nosy while we were outside the other day, and Lucy thought the cat was being very funny, she likes cats a lot.  As for me, I like them, but don't think I could deal with the fur shedding, my hair shedding drives me crazy enough.

  1. Totally agree about the cats. I'd love to have one, but I worry about the shedding. We may have allergies too, but I'm not sure.

    Cute pics...she looks like she's sayin "LOOK! momma a leeeeeffffff" hehe

  6. Oh, so jealous of that lens, gorgeous shots! Love the leaf ones.
    I even like the cigarette shot, what detail!
    Get a hairless cat! They are fun to look at and no shedding. :-)

    I'm not a cat person either but this one looks like it has an attitude.

  10. Is it bad that I totally LOVE that cig picture? : ) I can see why it is alluring when you are a teenager. The kids were rolling up white paper the other day and pretending to smoke! Craziness!

    Your daughter is darling. You rocked the leaves! and the pretty blue skies. Rock what you can : ) You will always find beauty!

  11. So with you - when do we get green grass, leafy trees, and colorful flowers to take pictures of (whine, whine)!! I guess we'll appreciate it all the more??

    Good idea to get out the 200 - maybe I'll do that too while we wait out the rest of this winter.

    Love the photos of your daughter - she is just too cute! My favorite is the last one with the leaf - love her eyes in that one!

    And, yes, cats do shed a lot, but as much as I love dogs, having a cat beats having to take a dog out to do his/her business in the snow when it's 5 below.
