Christmas was an exhausting, wonderful, and happy day. My sister is here from Seattle and stopped by and the kids were going batshit over their new [vintage] GI Joes. It was a good day.
A technical note: My learning curve with my 20mm prime continues. My AF and I almost came to fisticuffs; why I didn’t just use a single focus point and work from there is beyond me (it could just be I was buzzed from about 2:30-on) so some of these are lacking sharpness, or in focus-ness. Acclimating to low light/shallow DOF is not easy. I guess this is the point in every photographer’s journey where they go from letting their camera do all the work and making the camera do what you want it to do, and knowing when each is appropriate.
