This past weekend, I decided that the standard kit lens for the Canon Rebel Xs was no longer producing sharp images. I had already known that it was bad, but I stuck with it for 2 years. Since I shoot a lot of food photography and portraits, I decided to pick up the Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 lens. It’s relatively cheap at around $100 and can produce sharp images.

Even worse, my face gets strange itchy bumps that I’ve neglected to get checked for 2 years now. But I refuse to say a bit of itchiness dispels all my happiness from this season. Afterall, it is spring for goodness sake. Flowers here! Flowers there! Flowers everywhere! So lovely! And so I’ll just have to be itchin’ myself as I enjoy the pretty pop of colors.
