snow and other happenings

1.11.2011

1. a winter wonderland

I woke up yesterday morning to a world covered in white. It was gorgeous. Needless to say, we kids ran right out for some fantastical sledding. Hodge was totally wigging out, I don't think he's ever seen this much snow before.  

 

2. another lens
I'm getting my second lens this Sunday {Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II}! Technically, I can't call it a "new" lens because its used. However, it is in great condition and I've been wanting another lens for ages. I'm no expert on lenses, so I've been reading on amazon the past few hours. As far as the reviews go for this one, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna love it. If any of you own this lens, could you give me some advice on it?

3. running out
Okay. I am slightly freaking out. As I was uploading more photos to this post, this little message popped up. Whoops! You're out of space. Purchase more storage. Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage you purchase is shared between Gmail, Picasa Web Albums, and Google Docs, and is in addition to your free quota. Please, someone tell me this isn't true. Can anyone help me out of this? I'm off to drink a cup of tea to calm my nerves...

  1. Beautiful pictures. You're gonna love your new lens. I've been using my 35mm 1.8 and love it, but I know the extra stop would be fantastic! XOXO

  3. Hi!!! I have the 50mm 1.4 and I've heard the 1.8 is awesome but if you have the extra money, definitely definitely definitely buy the 1.4!

  4. Also, you will unfortunately run out of storage. I was so distraught when that happened to me. I was like, "Oh nooo! I have to payyyy for storage." Haha. But it's only like $10 for a lot of space. I would recommend decreasing the size of your files if you don't already. I started doing that when I bought more space and not only do they upload faster, but it takes up way less space! =D Hope that's at least a little helpful! Enjoy your tea!

  10. Oh, so now I understand why some people use flickr. I guess I'll worry about that when it happens. I love your dog pics in the snow! My dog looks sort of like yours!
