I mentioned before that I had lost the adaptor for my weird, fiddly lens. Well, I was 10 seconds away from buying a new one, when I wondered if I'd left it ON THE LENS. Yep. Then I laughed and felt dumb. It's a great place to keep it, I just forgot.
I got it out Thursday and made myself take a lot of shots, really practicing with it in manual mode. All those shots all day turned into a 'Day in the life' type deal. Which is kinda fun. So here's Thursday, January 26th: a gloomy, cold and rainy day. But also Aaron's birthday. All shots are SOOC (no editing).

Making myself use that lens all day helped me get the hang of it more, which is good. I think I'll be keeping it on for a while. Plus, it's kinda fun to have all these small details from one day. I should do this again.
