I had myself convinced that I needed a wide angle lens...did some research...bought one...and brought it home. After a few outings with John, and quite determined that I would like the lens if I just used it a little more... Well, it was not to be. I disliked the lens a LOT.
But, I did discover a lot about my photography. I hadn't realized it before, but I like to be up close and personal with my photos. It seems I like simple, and not photographs of far away scenery.
We took the lens back, and today I was outside happily photographing raindrops on lily leaves. Bliss.
