Word to your mother.

I rented the Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar for Canon mount when I went to Memphis for the Film is Not Dead workshop. My favorite lens rental spot on the planet (lensrentals.com, and they give me zero point zero anything for saying that) is located just outside of Memphis, so it was the perfect excuse to rent a lens I’d probably never try, and save on shipping. I barely got the chance to take it out for a spin before it was time to drop it back off and head home. So I decided to rent it again, but this time I nabbed it for a few weeks. You’ll see some images pop up here and there in blog posts for the next month or two, but here are some of my very favorite images from a lens/film test I did on May 28 at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Were I to win the lottery, this would without a doubt be the next lens in my gear bag. I don’t need it, but man, I sure want it!

Absolutely beautiful pics, Amy. How you didn’t just stand and photograph that rock wall all day long, I’ll never know.
