A new flower ring

My mom bought me a ring and I like it! I wanted sort of a statement ring and this one comes close (the perfect one would be the YSL oval arty ring!!). Thnx mommy!

Me showing off my ring....

The lens catches a fish on the point of escaping, as a net could never do

Not so long ago I started looking (in 2nd hand stores and flea markets) at old lenses that fit my Canon. It's not like I really go out to search for it, but when I see a cheap lens (I'll probably won't pay more than €10-€20 for it) I'll buy it! So far I found 1 (Auto Revuenon 200mm f/3,5)...

Yesterday I got a surprise! A Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 300mm f/4 lens. A real Carl Zeiss lens! (at least it says Carl Zeiss :p) This thing is huge.. and when I say huge I really mean HUGEEEEE! That thing weighs like 2kg! It still has all the books and even the warranty with a stamp of the date the owner bought it. He/She bought it on September 21st in 1976. That's like 34 years ago! Woooow! I don't know how the lens optically is, but it's pretty cool to say I got a Carl Zeiss lens :p



My bf just ordered a M42 adapter for me (thanks JayJay!), so photos made with the lenses will follow soon. I saw a photo of the moon made with the CZJ!

I don't eat snails. I like fast food

Another video! But now it's a video in HD. I just sort of figured out how to upload HD videos on youtube. Now what's left to do is to get them in the full youtube screen.

Here are snails in our backyard. My mom puts those poor little gross things in a bottle, because they eat all her flowers :p

*Last photo is kind of out of focus (too bad), because I was afraid the snail would get away :$

Don't forget to watch in HD!



Funny Fact: did you know snails are hermaphrodites? Yes! They have both male and female sexual organs

Fake Timelapse

I like timelapses! Unfortunately Canon doesn't have a timelapse mode on the camera itself like his competitor Nikon (like wtf even my Nikon compact camera has timelapse!). Canon uses a special remote -_-" Haven't seen them in the Netherlands yet so until then.... I'll keep making fake timelapses :)

about 11 minutes fastforwarded:



When I get SD card I will (try to) make better quality videos!

Star 8

I have some old Cokin filters at home (my mom bought them on Queensday for me), so about a week ago I tried them out. I liked 1 in particular: The star 8 filter! It creates points of light streaking outward from a light source, just like a star! The filter has a series of thin lines etched into the filter. That's what produces the star effect.

I photograph flowers, because they're cheaper than models and they don't move II

This was officially my "I photograph flowers, because they're cheaper than models and they don't move II" for the ones that weren't good enough for part I :P (I'm talking about the red, white and multicoloured one; they didn't fully bloom or whatever reason), but I made it into a more random post

*I like the white flower a lot!
*The 2nd photo was made in the train to Hoorn (it didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted, but it's ok)

*The spots you see in the 5th photo are balloons! I couldn't zoom more -_-"

Lawyers: blood-sucking parasites

Today I went to Loyens & Loeff for a training for my upcoming test (Law of obligations). It was a training given by 2 lawyers and a student. After the 3 hour training we had a couple of drinks with everybody (the teachers/lawyers and all the students who participated in the training).

Loyens & Loeff is a Dutch law firm with establishments all over the world. The inside of the building was very impressive! Too bad I don't have photos of the inside. It used to be 3 buildings and they turned it into 1 big building (you can see it in the photo; you see 3 different types of buildings next to each other). The outside doesn't do the inside justice! On the outside it kind of looks weird, but the inside is sooo open and sooo big. I totally didn't expect that. It has a HUGE atrium in the middle and all the offices are around this atrium. The inside of the building kind of has an old feel to it (a lot of wood), but also a modern feel (a lot of glass and straight lines). Very nice! I like it a lot!



and now... back to my little 'office' -_-"

iamsterdam

Last Saturday we went to Amsterdam to have dinner. We both brought our DSLRs with us and made some shots on our way back.
I really enjoyed shooting pics together! :) It's funny to see how different we look at the same things, like another perspective that I didn't think of. It's great to have someone to take photos with (and of hihi).
