the botanical gardens at 50mm

Usually I don't go to the Huntsville Botanical Gardens unless I have two or more camera lenses in tow. On this particular June day, though, I did the unthinkable and took only one lens with me, and it wasn't even a macro!! Instead, it was my spiffy new (to me- I bought it on Craigslist) 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor lens. I think that Darren was rather pleased not to have to play sherpa with the second lens case, and I had fun challenging myself to shoot flowers without macro or zoom and still make it interesting.

I was pretty pleased with the results and thought I'd share some of my favorite shots of the day. I'm sure they'll make it onto a scrapbook page at some point in the near future. :)
