Things have been going well with the D70 that I have on loan. So well that I am actually speaking with Tyler about purchasing his D7000 from him as he wants to get a new one with less clicks on it. Knowing that I was definitely going to start this hobby I decided to buy a better lens to learn on besides the kit one that I am using now. I purchased the Nikkor 35mm 1.8 and just received it today. This is one of my first images with it. I love how the subject is the candle and branches holding the specific candle but the rest of the image gets blurry, which I learned is called bokeh. The clock from my oven and coffee maker made that sweet circle of blue bokeh in the background adding interest to the image. I am going to have a lot of fun with this one for sure!
