Conor is now 1 1/2 years old/young. Once he hears the word smile this is the face that he puts on. Very enthusiastic and funny but he hasn’t managed to smile and keep his eyes open at the same time yet. Note the toy cars that he’s clutching. He LOVES them, even goes to bed with them in his hands….

I’m suprised that Conor (1 1/2) will leave his hat on when he’s outside, his older sister kept taking hers off and throwing it away. This is the first time I used the in built filters in my camera; a Pentax K-7, you can see the effect in the second shot. it gives a nice effect I think. I used to think that any in built filters would just be a novelty but I like some of them.
I was 1/2 thinking of selling my Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens to finance a very wide angle lens (8-16 or 10-20mm). I have a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens which sits on my Pentax K-7 body most of the time so the 30mm doesn’t get used a whole lot. So I decided to play a bit with it at home to see would I miss it. Any time I use it I realise that I like the lens a lot; it’s small, great for low light/very fast and creates great bokeh, even if I have to be close to my subject to get it. So, for the moment I think I won’t be selling it.
At the moment I think I’d like to add a wide angle and a macro lens to my collection and that I’d be happy with ‘my lot’ then. Although there’s always one more lens you want…
Anyway here’s Conor, he’s 1 1/2 now and loves cars, trucks, lorries and makes ‘lorry noises’ and gets excited anytime he sees one. He even doesn’t want to have his pjs taken off if they have a picture of a fire truck on them.
This is an old photo but I’m ‘bumping’ it up to the top as it’s Father’s Day this Sunday.
I only realised recently that if you have a baby/toddler that you’re meant to buy your wife/husband a card on behalf of your child for Mother’s/Father’s Day. No offence, but it’s one of the most stupid things I’ve heard in a long while.
Anyway, this photo was selected by Getty Images (yeee!).
