"Lens Buying Activity" "Lens Buying Addiction", and well, should one obtain a new lens, one must surely make an effort to use it.
Since it's a macro lens, it's either bugs or flowers, and it's not bugs; 35mm is kinda short for bugs, and handheld bugs is something for people with much steadier hands than I've got in any case.
I have no idea what any of these are, other than the dandelion, and I've subjected your patience to mostly full scale jpegs, the better to appreciate the detail.
Very shortly after rain, in the gardens at the foot of the walls of the Cathedral Church of St. James, downtown at King and Church Streets.
From the triangular garden in the tip of the southern end of the split in Don Mills Road; I don't know if this is a community garden or maintained by the Lutheran church that gets the first full width section of the stuff in the middle of Don Mills.
In the grass around the triangular garden above.
Maple tree by the side of the road; I feel minimally bad about the blown bits of sky because, hey, light cloud or no light cloud, that's the sun.
Not full size; these guys are in a garden by the start of the property of a large apartment building, and they're really very close to this colour.
More of the same flowers, only I hope with a better general depth of field.
Growing in one of the gardens scattered around the paths of the townhome complex I live in.
