My boyfriend has been having some camera training for his work, and as part of this he got to take home one of the fancy-pants cameras for the evening. He got to take home a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, with a portrait lens (an EF 85mm L II USM lens, if you know about this sort of stuff (I don't)). The 5D Mark II is a top of the range professional digital SLR camera, so it was a treat to play with it. It's made me want to get a SLR camera, it was very easy to make nice looking pictures, and with a bit of fiddling you can make some really nice effects.
I decided to take some pictures of my sewing machine, as I did say I would show you it some time ago.
My sewing machine is a hand-driven machine, it has serial number Y354 638, which means it can be dated to 1922. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I have some more pictures I took with the camera, but I'll show them off another day.
