This image is proof that if you are a Canon owner you don’t need to spend $1,400+ on a 50mm 1.2 lens, or $1,400+ on a 35mm 1.4 lens or $1,600+ on a 24mm 1.4 lens, to get really beautiful bokeh. This shot was taken with the $100 50mm 1.8 lens. That’s right, one hundred dollars. Go buy it here.

I stumbled on this image a few days ago while cleaning off my hard drive on my macbook pro, freeing up about 30GB of space (yay for me!). I didn’t even know I had this shot, and in fact don’t ever remember seeing it before, or doing the black and white conversion on it. I have a lot of these types of files, shots I’ve taken that get filed away in some random spot, never to be seen again. I was thrilled to discover this, because I absolutely love it. Now if only I could remember what the B/W conversion was I did on it. 😉
