My pretty new plate, my yummy lemon cake (a la Sequim Smith's), my new Nikkor lens (a la Christmas present from my in-laws). What I learned was that yellow cake is very appetizing on "peacock" fiestaware and that I need a lot of practice with a manual focus lens.
My dominant eye (also the one left open when I wink, since I can only do that on one side) is the one that I can't quite get a good prescription for. Therefore, even with contacts, I don't see that well out of it. Doesn't make for a good ability to focus. Kind of like in high school photography...old manual everything cameras and a teenage girl who refused to wear her glasses made for bad pictures. I can't believe I passed!
