Make wish..


My 50 mm 1.8 lens produces such gorgeous bokeh.  I can only imagine what the 1.4 is capable of. 

I found some lovely free actions over at Captivus-I used the "Sunshine" action on both of the photos above.  You can find the whole action pack to download HERE.
I created the collage with rounded corners in Picnik.

On a more serious note, I am so grateful that my particular area in the South has been spared from the disastrous tornadoes and thunderstorms that have been all over.  But there are so many that have not been so lucky.  Just last week hundreds (thousands?) were effected just an hour East of me in the Raleigh area. Yesterday, not only was there a  Tornado Watch for my county (as well as the surrounding counties) but there was absolute destruction in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Georgia.

My thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone that has been affected by the rash of tornadoes.

I love how you can make a weed look so pretty!
Nice texture. I think you are rocking the 1.8 lens...if you get a 1.4, Oh I can't even imagine!
I've priced it out, too much for me right now.

Beautiful!! I have the 50mm 1.8 and would LOVE the 1.4 as well, but the bokeh here is amazing! I too have been praying for all those affected by those horrific storms! I've never seen anything like the devastation that they left behind!! My heart goes out to them all! We had some strong ones here in Indiana, and lost power for 7 hours, but I'm so grateful we didn't get anything worse! So glad to hear you're okay! This is my first time entering the Texture Thursdays challenge ... it's fun seeing all the different images! You have a blessed weekend!
