New toy! Exciting! Remember when you were a kid and it was your birthday and you anxiously unwrapped your gift to find the exact thing you really wanted? Yes. That’s exactly how I feel although it’s not my birthday and I had to buy my toy myself. I bought my new “freestyler”( sort of a handmade lensbaby) here and thanks to lots of coincidences it got safely here just two days ago. New tool brings new excitement and new motivation…I just wish I had someone more cooperative to practice, because there IS a learning curve, but I will persevere 😉 and although I didn’t really get it for the purpose of portraiture these are the first results, bringing me what I love the most about photography – surprising, fleeting, unpredictable. Why was I waiting so long, why??!!
