Got My New Lens Today

DSC_0980re
Got my new lens in the mail today, it came early!  I've been wanting to get a new lens for a long time and earlier this week my husband said we could swing it.  So we went on amazon and ordered the 50mm f/1.8, and so far I like it.  It seems really good for portraits.

And that high aperture does a great job of blurring out my messy apartment in the background.

I then went outside to play with my new lens some more, I think I was getting a little rusty.
