Posted my Blog.....

on Facebook.  Don't have thousands or even hundreds of friends there, so now I have to make this interesting so friends will tell friends.

First, I am going to talk about my camera.  Ever think you could be in love with one ?  Well I am, to the point one can be with an inanimate object.  I have a Sony Alpha 700.  It really doesn't matter what kind of camera body anyone has, they pretty much function the same.  But the lenses !!  I had bad lens lust when I first got this camera.  Spent a bunch of money of fancy Zeiss lenses, plus a few cheap Minolta (Sony bought Konica/Minolta) and some standard Sony lenses. 

Well, guess what ?  All I have left is one Sony and 2 Minolta lenses.  Who needs all those lenses anyway.  I am not a professional that needs a 1000mm lens or anything like that.  One basic 18-250mm Sony, a 50mm and a 210mm (Beercan it is called and makes beautiful brokeh, the blurred out background)  both Minolta.

Enough about that.  To see some of my photo's go to www.pbase.com/michelep and you will see my galleries.  I am putting two here (for those with no interest in seeing all the other's of mine) to demonstrate the wonderful brokeh that can be achieved.

Questions, please ask.  Remember I am not a professional.
