#not dead

So uhm yes, it's been a while I think...my last journal entry is from last year so I thought it'd be time to make a new one.

I got some money for Christmas and I used it to buy a 50mm lens, which seems to be pretty cool so far. It makes the background all blurry and stuff (terminology at its best), like e.g. in this picture:

But initially I bought it to take macro photographs, so I also bought some macro filters. But I don't really like spending money, so I bought four filters (+1,+2,+4 and +10) for about 20€ and I'm pretty sure the quality can't be that good and I've also not quite figured out the right settings when using them. Anyway, here's an example:

Finally we're getting temperatures around 0°C and even some snow (I hear you laughing, East Coast Americans). But I think I haven't seen the sky in like three weeks or so, because it's always so cloudy. That's probably one of the reasons why I constantly seem to be in a bad mood lately. I just need to see the blue sky sometimes and watch the planes go by and not think of anything (wow...was that poetic? Or just corny?). I'm really overthinking things lately and it doesn't do me well.
I'll go to Berlin for the weekend with my history class and I'm honestly not looking forward to it. I've heard of people who'd give a lot to get to go to Berlin but I don't really like the city and I really really don't like the people with whom I'm going there, so ugh...

Yeah, ugh sums it up pretty nicely.
I hope you're having a better week(-end) than me, if not, feel free to rant to me about how much your life sucks.
Take care!

Your new lens and filters sounds really nice! YAY! for new camera equipment :dance: Have fun with them and I cant wait to see more photos! =) I have not done macro in a while maybe I should do some,

 

It's been mostly cloudy here most of the time to, and super cold. =( I really need to see the sun!

Haha thanks :hug:

I'll try my best to upload some more^^
You totally should do more macro! I think it's one of the most fun ways to take pictures. You get to see all those smaller things that people don't usually see because they always walk around without taking a closer look. And usually the results are amazing to look at!

Now it's getting really cold here as well :/ At least today there was some sun, that was really lovely. Sadly I didn't have the time to go out and take pictures. :(

Thank you! I did have fun. I guess it's always like that, first you think it's terrible and in the end it wasn't that bad after all.

Ugh that sucks... Is it still snowing where you live?

Thank you very much again! I hope you have a nice week too and get to go outside some more!
