Photo Monday – My New Lens!

For my birthday, Mr. Mouse got together with my family and got me a new lens I’d been wanting.  It’s different for me because it has no zoom.  I have to move, can you imagine that?  It’s a 50mm lens and

Photo Monday – NYC Marathon

No, not me.  I’ll walk forever but I don’t run.  Nope.  Mr. Mouse ran it.  I went with him as far as I could (Staten Island ferry) and then caught him three times before he finished.  I am very very
