LG_I_Heart_FacesI’m loving the new look over at iHeartFaces. I can’t believe I’ve been submitting photos for a year to their fun weekly contests. I started out on 12th January 2009 with some vague intention of trying to take part at least once a month and ended up taking part 38 weeks of the year. Not bad for a vague intention.

So my favourite face photo from December/January is this one of Paul.

In case anyone missed it Santa (MrW) spent a rather sleepless night on 24th December. Since we’d agreed on small gift for each other, cutbacks for the kids and a holiday in Florida for us all in July it was very brave of Santa (MrW) to wrap up that 50mm 1.4 AFS lens… he sneaky sent a child under the tree to retrieve it and hand it to me…  I was expecting something smelly and bubbly.

It’s fab. I love it.

This is one of the better shots I got after a few glasses of champers at my sister’s on Christmas morning.

I think I am going to need some practice with this big beastie.

    Ohhhhhh I’m jealous! I just got my hands on my 1.8 a few months ago and I loev it, but if i hadn’t been strapped for cash it’d have been the 1.4 all the way. Did you hear they’re bringing out a 1.0 now?? Costs something ridiculous like 3k though. >_<
