“Why must life be so hard?!”
I love this photo to bits; it’s such a precious moment!  I love it when dogs do humanoid things, like yawn and sneeze.  I do wonder though… you know how people say yawns are contagious?  Do you think it works between dogs and humans as well?  Hmmmmmm I think I read a study that suggested yes, but I can’t remember.  Anyway, like I’ve said before, Phillip here will be heavily featured on this blog, on account of him being the cutest dog ever.
On a more serious note, this photo was taken with a gem of a lens that I found in my dad’s old collection.  It’s a K-Mount SMC Pentax 50mm f/1.4, and it looks like it’s packing some serious optics.  With an effective focal length of 100mm and an aperture that wide, it gives some super creamy bokeh that just ooooooozes.  All it took was a cheap K-mount micro four-thirds adapter off eBay and I was up and running.  It is a fully manual affair, like all adapted mounts, but that’s half the fun!
