Silliness ensues….

Vacation afternoons are fun.  Sitting and catching up over a cocktail.  Our favorite spot in Laguna is Sapphire.  Located on PCH with views of the sea and locals stopping in, it is a great place to catch up with the goings on of the town.  On this afternoon, we ran into someone we have known for many years and swapped holiday plans.

For these photos I pulled out the Olympus and used the Lensbaby lens.  It is a pretty interesting lens and allows for taking a portion of the shot in focus and the rest blurred.  Every now and again I pull this out and play with it and each time I remember how much I like it.

So the best of the best – an afternoon with the adorable CF, a visit with a friend and shooting.  Now that is vacation!


  1. You should take a look at their website. You pretty much have to stay in aperture priority but you can do all sorts of cool things with it. I have a series of beach shots coming up in the next few weeks that I liked for the distorted focus and blurred background. One of my favorite shots – posted years ago was with this lens from the front seat of my car. Worth playing around a bit. I hope this encourages you to be daring in 2014!
