Portrait of a Dog

After my post yesterday, can anybody really be surprised that I switched lens for the day?

So... presenting my my-loved 135mm f/2 (portrait) lens.

Dog Blog Post #2072

Yesterday, in response to reader's question about my camera, I waxed poetic about my now-rarely used 135mm f/2 lens.

So... when challenged to do something Special with a Face I decided switching to A Portrait lens seemed like a good plan.

Honestly, despite my fond reminisces, I had forgotten how much I really, really love this lens.

If only I didn't have to have the camera in the Family Room to shoot the dogs in the Kitchen (20+ ft apart) in order to use it.

Don't get me wrong. I also love my 60mm macro f/2.8 workhorse lens, which handles everything I throw at it AND doesn't need to be in a different time zone to do so. And it will be returned to the camera in short order. But...
