Recognize this lens? The effect of a long telephoto like this is a lot of fun. Especially when your circle of confusion has a hole in it! Extra credit if you have any idea what I just said…

Welcome to another beautiful Sunday Morning! I’m not sure which woodland critter eats these, but I’m sure they will be delighted to find them.

Golden hour light shines through a small ground cover plant near the lakes in Minneapolis. Not many days left for this little bugger.

This was taken at Target headquarters, just outside Bob‘s office with the Sigma 600mm catadioptric lens. Mirror lenses create strange ring shapes in the bokeh, which is one of the reasons I used this lens. This effect created by the center mirror and I’ve noticed that it makes other photographers smile and laugh, so it made sense for Matt‘s “Smile” assignment.
