A Bad Day With A Camera

Blowing Bubbles

Today was day three of whatever I am down with, so it was just another spin around my yard with a camera as that’s all I had the energy for. I tried to mix things up by pulling out a lens that has lain dormant since I visted Ray in Edmonton last November.

It is the TTArtisans 100mm f2.8 Bubble Bokeh lens that I had such high hopes for. It is yet another lens with a learning curve to it and I didn’t learn fast enough that weekend. We couldn’t find the type of Christmas lights we were looking for on Jasper Avenue in Edmonton at the time, there wasn’t the right light on the foreground subject (usually Ray), and he powered down before we could finish experimenting. He had both radiation and chemo the day before so I was amazed he was upright at all! Ray was no pansy, I’ll tell you that.

Anyhow, I had my heart set on using it with Ray and then I couldn’t, which killed my desire to use the lens for some time. It took me a while to get up the will to pull it out again, and that happened to be today. I shot through some trees into the sun and got better results this time, but the person I wanted to share them with is no longer here.

Maybe someday we’ll get to compare notes on it. I hope.

Kit: Canon EOS R5 with the TTArtisans 100mm f2.8 bubble bokeh lens, M42 mount with an M42 to RF lens adapter.
