What a night - What a life



Last night Allie and I went down to hang with Gary and Missy and Denis and Beth. It was quite a night! Gary took us out for a sunset cruise on his yacht and it was incredible! There's something so magical about being out on the water and seeing the sky go deep blue and the city lights begin to glow behind you. It's so fun because even though I live so far from my friends I still see them every couple of weeks!

I was also super stoked because Denis brought me his coveted Canon 50mm f/1.0 lens! He said he had shot some of his favorite images with this lens so I am beyond stoked that he passed it on to me. I'm so excited to shoot with this lens. It was discontinued a long time ago and they are really hard to find. It's incredible and no other lens can get shots like this one can!

Note to DR and DJ:
I love well-cared-for used Canon gear and would be happy to "adopt" any castoffs. :)
Better photography thru osmosis???

1.0? What the "f"? :-) That's awesome! I never even heard of a lens that has that "f"-stop.

Glad you had a good time!
