Now that I have cameras, I’m lusting for lenses. I’d like a macro lens for the detail photos I love to take. The Little Canon Elph has a macro function on its program setting; the Canon Rebel does not. So a girl has to get creative with the lovely tools she already has unless a birthday present is in her future.
Still, I’ve been advised that other lenses besides a dedicated macro lens would probably be more useful in my photographic endeavors. Since lenses are pricey purchases, I need to consider the options carefully.
A wide angle with zoom would probably be more a useful overall lens to add to my camera bag. It was a fine day for fishing and a wider angle lens would have captured the three surf fishermen, their assorted poles planted in the sand where the waves spill onto shore, and the morning sunshine reflecting off the water in a truly dramatic way. The Little Canon Elph has its limitations, but I couldn’t live without her.
Is it tacky to talk about your own birthday before you celebrate your son’s, whose birthday comes before yours?
Yeah. I thought so.
