Doesn't he have the most beautiful eyes?

The son of one of Henk's colleagues I photographed on Sunday at a year-end function. Such a little cutie!



And also - I am sooo excited. I ordered a new camera and lens today, which should arrive before the end of the week. I've been using the Olympus E400 and though I'm not entirely unhappy with its performance, I find the range of lenses available for Olympus SLR's very disappointing. So, after a lot of consideration, I decided to buy a Canon 40D (yes, I know there's a new 50D, but the 40D is so much more affordable now and it meets all my requirements, so I'm sticking with thinking I made the right decision for my current situation). I also ordered a 50mm f1.4 lens and I simply can't wait! I've been longing for a 50mm lens for what feels like forever and I hope it lives up to my expectations! I'm sure once it arrives I'll feel inspired to take hundreds of new photos to display.

He's precious! Those eyes are so intriguing =)

Welcome to the world of Canon's LOL I had the Olympus and had the same problem, no lenses. Matt had the XSI so I sold my 510 on ebay and paid off the xsi. After the first of the year I will order another xti or xsi because 2 photographers in the house fighting over 1 camera...doesn't work LOL

Enjoy the new camera!

First of all, OOOOH THOSE EYES, they just draw you in.

A 40D? Good choice!! Did you switch to Canon now? OH THE ACCESSORIES! :)

I've been dreaming for the replacement to the 5D. Having said that, I'll just continue to dream. :)

He does have beautiful eyes. I like the shy look you captured.

Enjoy that new camera when it arrives. I'm sure we will see the results of the new equipment soon.
