New Lens and Pie

February 10, 2011

I’m alive – I swear! I haven’t been updating because this semester has been really tiring. I won’t bore you with all the details.. but it turns out… 2 MBA classes, working full-time, planning a wedding, and having a social life may, in fact, be a near impossible feat.

Anyway, now for the fun stuff!

I got a new lens a week ago. It’s the Diana Lens from Photojojo.com. Basically it’s a plastic lens… yes, plastic! and the result is low saturation, soft blurs, vignetting, edge distortion, and light leaks. The one thing that I have read is that the harsher the sunlight the better for all of Diana’s eccentricities. I took her out on a relatively gray day, which meant no vignetting or light leaks 😦 It did mean saturation, soft blurs, and a generally dreamy quality though. Here are two of my favorite photos (both from Beverly Park near my house):

And finally, we had dinner with Jess last night at Mitchell’s Fish Market in Birmingham. It was delicious – especially dessert:

This is a single slice of Sharkfin pie. Even with all three of us working on it, we probably only were able to finish 2/3.

This weekend is the annual Quilt Shop Hop, so stay tuned πŸ™‚



  1. That pie looks amazing. You’re amazing!

  2. I totally have the mini Diana camera – I had no idea you could buy their lenses for regular cameras. It’s so hipstery and far too cool for me. I have no idea how to use it. You seem to be having better luck with it!

    • Haha, Dim – you’ve found my secret. I was hoping this lens would elevate me into a slightly cooler status (not full-blown hipster, clearly I’m not ready for that)… unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to working. πŸ™‚
