This summer, I lost my new camera lens.
It was so wonderful, and I got such a good deal on it. It was a Sigma 70-300mm Macro AF-S for my Nikon DD40--which means in non-camera-geek language--a sweet lens under $300!!
So anyway, yeah I totally lost it. I remembered the last time I had it (taking kids to camp), but everything was fuzzy after that. Well, after quite a search, I gave up. My husband said we couldn't afford a new one. Man.... I continued to look them up online, drooling, wishing, conspiring, hoping I would see one on ebay for $50 or something (yeah, right...)
Well, yesterday I found it. The story of its discovery is too long (and disgusting) maybe I'll share it for another blog. But--suffice it to say I decided to clean out my pantry, top to bottom with bleach, and that's where I found it.
Yes, in my pantry, in a bag of cooler-bags. Someone must've mistaken the lens case for a cooler..(???)
In honor of my found lens, Here's a picture I took with it:
Now, why I love the lens: There's some technical word for it, but beside the fact that it can zoom in from really far away, I love the effect it has where the background is REALLY blurry. It makes your subject stand out so awesome-ly. Ahhhhhhhhh.....love it.
