Weekend - Downtown Chicago

Navy Pier - Chicago has fireworks every Saturday over the summer, so we had planned our stay such that we could go there. We headed out to Navy Pier in the evening and came back after the same-old-yet-amazing fireworks there.

Some random pictures taken at Navy Pier and the ferry ride...

The Chicago skyline is something I never get tired of taking pictures of. Somehow, every time I take a pic of it, it seems "new". Hopefully, you won't get tired of watching it either...

The ferris wheel - that goes around at the speed of revolving earth - was a drag! But since I had the camera, why not take some weird pictures and make it look "artistic", eh??

 Another angle - just to make you reach the snooze button faster.

And in case you are still up, hey, here's another one!

New lens, hello DoF...

So after a long wait, I finally decided to get my first prime lens. A 50 mm/1.8f Nikkor. Everything that I had heard about the lens was right, and more. The lens is simply superb, for the price. And if you are anything like me, the F1.8 will give you a great DoF. I can't even image how the F1.2 lens would be working!

Anyways, so the day I got my lens, we had a b'day party at a friends, and while there are tons of pictures I took, I figured I would put the food ones here...

Starting with the delicious chocolate dipped strawberries

Dessert

Next up are the Samosas...

Appetizers

And all you have to do is move the focus to the next dish to get your blur...

Once we were out on the BBQ, there were some delicious Kabobs & corns:

I have a feeling I am going to have a lot of fun with this lens...

Celebration...

I went to Orlando, FL for the first time and really fell in love with the town of Celebrations.

Right across a Starbucks, there is this nice little place to sit in the shade...

You just sit there and suddenly you will feel the peace and quiet of a small-town USA.

I think I can spend hours here...

And just in case you wanted the address, it's right here!
