Sandy a la Mode – Assignment #1: Bokeh

My friend Sandy’s got a blog, with her first photography post dedicated to bokeh…

AKA: Sandy’s Bokeh Battle Royale – Photo Challenge! POW!

Anyway, below are some photos I took when my parents came to visit this past weekend.  All photos were taken with the Olympus E620, with either the Olympus ZD 50mm f/2.0 macro (the first one from the Como Park Conservatory), or the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 (the other ones from the Cathedral of Saint Paul).

I’m Still Alive

My posts have been lacking (non-existant, rather).  My goal for the new year is to post at least 1 photo a week.  Looks like I’m 2 posts behind.

Luckily for me, I’m Vietnamese.  I can just start mid-Feb.  Consider it Asian-time (I’m just beginning fashionably late), and/or because Vietnamese New Year (Tet) is February 14th this year (V-Day… short for Vietnamese-New-Year Day, obvi).

Anyway, the parental units will be making their first trip out to visit me this weekend.  I’ll be able to snap some pics then.  I’m sure pops will be toting his Nikon around, and well have a rousing discussion/debate on how his Nikon is better than my Olympus.  =)

Anyway, boring story short, I’ll get back to shooting and making sure I post more often.

Toods, dudes. <– That’s short for Toodles, btdubs.  Sounds less girly when you shorten it.  And I ain’t no girl.  Know what I mean?
