Back at Christmas, I was the happy recipient of a "nifty 50" -- a Canon 50 mm prime lens that costs around $100. It's mostly plastic and -- as with all of photography -- not the best 50 mm prime lens you can buy.
However, it's a 50 mm f 1.8 lens, so I happily brought it along to ride the new it's a small world and to take some pictures.
I got a couple of good shots, but my favorite of the night is this one, from the also newly-refurbished Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through.
This one was taken with my trusty kit lens from way back when I bought the camera, but I'd paused there to wait for my mom to buy a coffee, and I never take photos from this angle or vantage point.
A couple of small world shots. I like Woody the best, but to be fair, I tried to get away with an ISO of 400 in an effort to reduce noise. I got a surprising number of usable shots, but I think next time I'll go for 800 and see what I can do with that. There's always 1600 if I must.
Meanwhile, still slowly going through San Diego pictures from...ahem...the day after Thanksgiving. Lots of neat Balboa Park architectural pictures, with some Seaport Village thrown in.
And that's all she wrote, for now.
