    abid....the nifty fifty is quite famous though I'm not too happy with the copy I've got...hmm...

    neel....nah...she's black enough to freak out all those superstitious guest that come to my house... :D

    Zanzi....she's a cat...too old to be called a kitty though she is kinda small in size...we named her 'silver' initially but call her chootu (hindi name meaning small)....I've got a white cat too, next post will be her pictures...regarding following my blog, I think it's my template messing around so I need to change it but been too lazy to fix it. Will let you know when its fixed...

  1. Nice! Great performance for the money. Good to know you're a cat guy! :)

    I'm totally a cat two and want one more (a ginger one) but my parents won't let me cause I'm kinda allergic to them... :(
    And the nifty fifty is good, just hate its unreliable focusing...wish I could but the 50mm f1.4....
