    Yeah uncreative title. Oh well. I just liked some of these. Still playing with my new 50mm lens. So weird not being able to zoom in or out but it makes for interesting pictures.

    This was an accidental shot:

    Frame it, send to a magazine, do something with it, because this is excellent!

    And your "accidental" shots are accidentally amazing.

    I really really loved these. REALLY.

    And something about that first one, the accidental one is just really captivating. Just lovely pictures.

    Yeah that one was my favorite! I was thinking of at the least making it into a signature for a while. ;)

    Thanks guys! :D I really loved them too even though some came out a bit grainy. That accidental shot I didn't even look at, I just held it down and snapped. At first I was disappointed that only half of her was in the frame but then I decided I kind of liked it.

    By the way, that shiny stuff on the ground that looks so pretty...I thought it was flowers at first... It was a bunch of feathers from a dead bird. lol At least it looks pretty in the pictures?

    She's a good dog. :)

    I really like the photographs. I am a fan of that time of day though, it just seems to peaceful ... even with crazy dogs running about. :p

    Glad you posted these! I've been eying a 50mm for a while...how do you like it? Have you tried for much in the way of indoor shots, yet? These are really nice for your first time out with it! That first accidental shot is my favorite...her face is just so "Mia". And that it's half-obscured somehow makes her look even more naughty lol.

    Very nice!! You got a 35mm and a 50 mm?? Lucky! I really love the 50mm even though I don't use it all that often because I sacrifice a little bit of quality for something with zoom. Makes my life easier than carrying multiple lenses. Now I want to go outside and play with my 50mm!! Too bad it's raining...
