Day 226

It's been such a cold, grey and miserable day today, that I didn't fancy going outside for a photo shoot. Instead, I stayed indoors and had one last go at shooting the roses, this time using the 50 mm lens. Although you can't get a close-up with it, it's okay for taking a shot of the whole bunch of flowers, so I went for some depth of focus shots, making the most of the lens's ability to open up to f/1.8.

Today is my birthday, and to celebrate we're going away for the weekend tomorrow, so I won't be making any posts for a few days, but I'll still be taking photos.

Have a great weekend!
