some flickr faves from christina

It's been a while since I've been able to post on Paper Heart. This year has flown by with non-stop kid activity! I'm excited for summer…I hope I'll have enough activities planned to keep them busy though!

So it was a big day today! I have been debating a new lens for a while now and I finally made my choice and it arrived today! So exciting!!! I decided to go with the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L (I'm a Canon girl). I was only able to play with it for a bit this evening before needing to sit down and get this post completed. I'm so excited about it! The color is amazing! The detail! I usually rely on my 50mm f/1.4 and I will continue to do so but I needed a great zoom for shooting my kids. My kit lens wasn't cutting it anymore and this was the upgrade I have been waiting for. I can't wait to share more photos with you but for now, I'll share this shot I got of one of my cats, Monty, today. This is SOOC. I'll be posting much more very soon on my blog, rsvp ink.

I'd love to hear more from you as to what your go-to lens is. Every photographer is different. We are all trying to get different things...different focal lengths, details, still, movement, etc...most of my fine art photography is still life and nature, so my 50mm works great but with kids something that can zoom to get that perfect shot of them is important to me! Please feel free to leave a comment to tell us what your favorite lens is!!!!

Now on to my faves from our flickr group. I decided to choose some flower photos! I hope you enjoy! There are so many beautiful photos, it was hard to decide. These are in random order! Don't forget to grab featured button for your blog!

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Congrats on the new lens - I'm a bit jealous. When I bought the Tamron 28-75mm lens, the one you got was a little more than my budget would allow but I still love it. My go to is my 50 mm f/1.4

  2. Congrats on the new lens! I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a little jealous of that! ;)

  3. My photo being featured made my day :) All really great photos!

  4. Jealous! That's the next lens for me. :D

  5. Love the photos. I'm sold. I've been needing a new one, so I'm off to check it out. Thanks.

  6. The 24-70 was quite a debate and I went back and forth for quite a while. It's a big decision!

  7. Simply and stunningly gorgeous.

  8. Glad you went for it! Your shot looks great SOOC!
