Having a grand old time today. Hope Larbs is too!
First we went running, and I smoked it. (Didn’t inhale, only exhaled) First time since we moved to Hill Country that ALL 5 miles were under 9 minutes. One was even 8:31! Sweet. It was a great run!
Then I did a bit more work and we had a sardinified lunch.
First an appetizer of snap peas from our garden with a little hummus! Can’t believe we grew them
Actually, these were herring! Smoked herring from Trader Joe’s. Proclaimed the "best tinned fish we’ve had" by both of us. We made a version of the famous sardine salad and served it over garden butterhead lettuce.
Here’s the lettuce growing!
I spiked my herring with a bit of this:
On the side, half an apple with cinnamon
And sweet potato chips – heavens these were delicious.
I’m actually on the market for a new lens.
I currently use the stock lens that came with my camera, which is wide angle and zooms and the Canon 50 mm 1.8, which takes an AMAZING shot, but has a very limited frame and does not enable you to get up close to your food. I’m looking for something versatile (so wide angle and zoom good for wide-angle landscapes and foo and low aperture capability for dark restaurants) AND with a high quality and crisp picture.
Andrea lent me her Sigma 24-70mm 2.8 to test out and see if I’m interested in buying it. It’s hard to believe the differences between three lenses. These photos are all completely unedited.
I like the 50 mm best in the apple shots.
I like the Stock lens the best out of these three
I preferred the 50 mm in those too.
After lunch we went to run a few errands, including picking up some pumpkins!!
And with that, I have a conference call to attend!
