The new lens.

Hi there and happy happy Sunday!

The other day, the boy and I bought a new camera lens since our old one is broken. We’re also planning on buying another one becaaaaause…. this one’s a macro lens!

We chose the Canon EF 50 mmm lens and…. oh boy, am I happy about this choice!

For only 110 € it is a perfect mate for our trips and it will be very helpful with portrait pictures I guess. Here are a few snapshots from the day it arrived in the mail:

I just came home from work… so nevermind 😛

Acting stupid. Oh, and me loves cherries. YUM!

This one is from this morning. I don’t wear any make-up. Haha, and you can see my freckles.


Well, I have to say I am pretty much in love with this lens. The first two pictures didn’t need any photoshop action. I only used a B/W filter for the second one, that’s all.
It’s easy to handle and a tiny light-magician! Seriously – it catches so much light and makes the pictures look very very soft and cute. Ha, I am amazed!

Talking about photography gear… do you own a camerabag? I think I want one but I am totally bored with the „usual“ ones.

Nicole from MakingItLovely shared a few bags and other gear. My fave is No. 5! It definitely matches my regular bags and my style… but 309 $ isn’t exactly what I would like to spend. So I am thinking of sewing a camera bag myself. Here’s a tutorial on how to turn a regular bag into a camera bag. Sounds sweet!


Have a magical Sunday, friends!


Love yous,

  1. hi katja!

    i really like the pictures. i like everything about your blog, really. i started blogging a while ago before i went to spend a year in ireland and blogged about that (mostly for my friends) and during this time i found your blog. as i also like to create and decorate my latest blog is about myself but also a little bit about things i’m doing (i try to get more into that and blog more regularly!)
    but the question i have is: what kind of camera do you have? i have been thinking about buying a proper camera for a long time but i don’t really know anything about it so maybe you can give me some tipps?! would be lovely 😉
    anyways, i hope you’re going to blog for a loooong time and maybe have a look at my page as well…
    jenny xoxo
