I took back a Tamron 18-270mm lens because we just didn't bond. I decided on a Canon STM 55-250mm even though I can't take full advantage of its features with my old camera body. My aging human body likes it and I have 45 days to decide.
Meanwhile...*Dahlias (Dahlia pinnata) originate from central Mexico, easy to remember the Latin name because it sounds like piñata. They love to be well drained, bath in the sun, and photographed by medium range telephoto lenses.
Their pompons range from 1/2 to 12 plus inches ("There is even a lime green mini pompon flower called 'Yoko Ono,'" according to gardenguides.com).
Their color range is immense but does not include a true blue. Aw.
|So far 55mm isn't too close for outdoor shots|
|No need to lean in like I'm near sighted. Which is how I think of my old lens|
|It's nice for us too, Hummus Breath|
|So very interesting please push the water dish under my nose|
