    Thanks Gordon

    I couldn't get a good shot of her until I got the 50mm, f1.4 because when she saw the flash on the camera she would stay away and keep her eyes closed! At age 16 they are too smart.

    She's a cutie Ken.

    Here are my babies:

    Pumpkin was a cast-off that someone left at our vet. Jackson was a rescue. We got him from the pound a few hours before they would have gassed him. :?


    She's a real sweetie, most of the time:


    Here he is defending the house against a wild twist tie:

    Depth of Field

    Thanks for the comments. The 50mm, f1.4 is known for both it's low-light ability, bokeh, and very shallow depth of field wide-open.

    It can be a blessing or a curse depending on the circumstance.
    For low light it's hard to beat. Up close it creates great effects.
