Random Flickr photo of the day – September 23, 2011

A few first’s for this RFPD.  It’s the first entry that I shot this year, first that is also the most viewed from my Flickr Photostream, and the first flower shot with my new to me Nikkor 50mm f/1.4. (picked it up this past Friday).

This was shot at Cheesecake’s house, in their backyard.  Not that crazy about it, but I really was just playing around with my new to me lens.  I have shot with the fast fifty before, but, this one, I call my own, and it just feels different.  It’s one of my favorite lenses really, and I am so glad to have it finally in my bag.  Hopefully I can get to shoot more with it soon.

I might do some more post-editing on this one.  I’ll make sure to post it up when I do.
