Life Through My Lens #1

As I mentioned on Sunday, I recently got a 50mm 1.8 lens for the Canon 1000D I bought off eBay (body only) for a snip at £75. I've been longing to make the jump from bridge to SLR for a while now and I've finally done it. Being on maternity leave, however, meant my budget was limited so I decided to hunt online for a bargain. I picked a body only camera and bought the lens on Amazon. So far I don't regret only having a 50mm lens instead of a kit lens (I'll purchase an 18-55mm one at some point) because it just makes every photo look dreamy and I can't stop snapping away at Matilda and Evie...my two daytime companions and the perfect subjects for such a lovely lens. I thought I'd write a post as an excuse to show what I've been shooting...
