I'm in Love!

....with my new toy...  The 100mm 2.8L macro IS USM lens!

Took my new found Love on a date for Valentine's Day to the LA Arboretum.  Been living in Cali for 19 years and I've never been to the arboretum - crazy!  A few of my photog friends bought their dates (their cameras & toys) along and we made a day of it.   It was almost 80 degrees, the sun was shining (or beating down on us - depending on how you look at it) the birds were singing (literally) - and we had a ball.

What have I learned from this relationship so far - that I'm not very good at editing myself...  Yes - it would seem as if I've posted every shot from yesterday (even though I didn't)!   I have a feeling the two of us are going to make beautiful "music" together...

This post is dedicated to my Mom - who absolutely loves flowers!
