New Lens

I got a fun new 50 mm fixed lens for my camera and so I've been playing with it the last couple of days! Some ladies asked for some pics of our feet (you know... "how beautiful are the feet...") so I got a little carried away taking feet pictures :) You can see Aashini's cute little anklets (on her cute chubby feet!) :) In our area of South Asia, they give kids these anklets when they start walking (I think so that they can hear where they are) :) So, we bought some before we left to give her when she starting walking... she thinks they're cool :)
My cool friend Lea has almost the same lens that I do and taught me a fun trick tonight - so I had to try it out! I was too lazy to pull out the tripod (and make it look even cooler) but this still looks really cool :) These are the lights on our tree - I made them look like stars! Fun hunh?

Those baby anklets are so cool! Sort of like cowbells for babies. I want some for Abby. And I love your toe rings. Great photos!

dude, you're killing me with the awesomeness of having a GIRL! her little feet with those anklets are precious, and I love the family feet shot too!

I love little baby feet pics. I know Aashini isn't technically a baby though, but she's still got the little toesies! I love the ankle bracelets!! Wish I had thought ahead for Hazel!

Welcome to the land of the 50mm. My absolute favorite lens, as you know. :-)

I love the anklets!! So cool! I also love the feet pics. I know you are going to have lots of fun with that new lens!

Love the pictures! And that one with the lights is pretty awesome!

Bri said...

I love it when babies curl their little toes!

hey for everyone else who loved those anklets (and who has a daughter to put them on... sniff), I saw that baby steals has some today. this is apparently the cambodian version but it's pretty similar. pretty anyway. http://www.babysteals.com/20081219_baby_emi_jewelry.php

That's really cool how your new lens made the lights look like stars!

I think it's funny that someone would consider it necessary to put jingly anklets on a baby to hear where they are...My kids are so noisy, I never lose them. No anklets required!! :) They do LOOK really cute though!

Love the feet shots, and I love taking those cool shots with my
35mm camera. I have a small Nikon digital, but just does not take the cool effect pictures. One day I'll get a 35mm digital.
Keep up the great pictures.

I love my 50mm too! Great shots!

Elizabeth said...

What fun pictures! Aashini's anklets are too cute. How long do babies wear them?

Ah- you got a new lens! You'll have to tell me what you think about it sometime soon!! That's one I've been looking at for awhile now! I can't wait to hear all your input! Love the feet pics- you know I have a passion for those little toes too!
