I decided to give myself a New Years' challenge to get a usable shot every day with a lens I don't often use. I have several lense's in my arsenal, but always end up grabbing a macro, telephoto, or a wide-angle lens to fit my need. January will be my 50mm month, and before we take the Christmas Tree down, I thought I would grab some shots with the bokeh in the background to showcase the aperture of my Canon EF50mm f/1.4 USM a bit.
While I didn’t walk away with a tremendous amount of shots, I did meet my expectations of the day as I was looking for tight frame-filling head or body shots that would still print in large format without any issues. I probably would have had even more usable ones if I was not in aww just studying things with my avid birder curiosity.
I decided to quit procrastinating on making progress with getting my photo archives organized and updated. Rather than going through my folders by date, I’m going to tackle them by subject matter which will allow me to be a bit more efficient at least (fingers crossed).
A very random photo dump on this post. With things being busy on a professional level and doing the whole social distancing thing, I find myself not behind the lens much, and when I am it's clicking kitten pics since we just got a couple of new fur-babies.

What does an artist do most of the places I would go for lens candy are closed and off-limits. When I cannot take another picture, of another squirrel, for the 45th day in a row. Well I decided to expand my artistic endeavors toward more pronounced digital abstractions. Many of them don't even resemble the original shot, while others may slightly.
What should a photographer do during quarantine and a peacock is loose in the neighborhood? Well, click the shutter of coarse!
