Cream Machine Strikes Again

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Uncle Frank, Dec 15, 2005.

  1. Nancy and I were shopping at the drugstore when I spotted some fine headwear. I asked a young shopper to model it for us, and she and her mother didn't mind if I snapped her picture :) .

    53600103.

    The picture sold us on buying headgear for ourselves to wear at an upcoming Christmas party. As we left the store, I asked Nancy to pause so I could snap her picture. She's an experienced photographer's wife, so she looked behind her and said, "Do you really want to take a shot with this kind of background?".

    "Aha!" says I. "I have a secret weapon that will puree the background!" ;-)

  2. now That's what I call Bokeh!
    Nice shots Frank, can't wait for more from you and this lens.
    Puree...that's a nice term for it :biggrin:
     
  3. Frank, the Cream Machine really shines in your hand. It will be a perfect match for your D200.

    Merry Christmas, and wish your mother will get well soon.
     
  4. Thanks very much, Phil! For a while, the docs thought we might need a specialist of your persuasion, but it now appears the causes of her crash were less sinister.

    Did I mention that I love your new avatar? You look quite dashing with that pink lightsword in your hands :wink:. I've greatly enjoyed your companionship this year, and look forward to a continuation in 2006!
     
  5. UF, your talent for proper nomenclature amazes me. "Cream Machine" - what a wonderful name. Seems we have another addict here. It doesn't take long to get addicted to this lens (about one hour in my case :smile:) .

    Cheers
     
  6. Frank, glad to hear thar it's not as serious as initially thought.

    And thanks for the compliment. It's my privilege to know you, and other Cafe members. I can't think of a better community.
