Hello eveyone! I hope you are all doing well! So I wanted to show off the lenses I got the other day and just what my new set up kinda looks like. .
First of course is the overview of my set up. Got a new bag to accommodate all the lenses I have now. Surprisingly it seems heavier? Not sure why, lol. .
Anyway, first up is the 50mm 1.4 that I showed before. Next is the 55mm 3.5 macro lens with an extension tube below it. After that is a 80-200mm 4.5 macro lens. Then my standard kit lenses that actually go with my system, the 10-30mm and the 30-110mm. And last, but not least, my 28mm 2.8. It doesn't say macro but it's got a pretty close focus range. .
They're all old as the hills but work, feel, and look fantastic! .
Another side note is that I won't be posting anything for a bit again. This time intentionally while I work through editing some old stuff that I really want to post before I dive into my manual lens world. I can already tell you that the look is going to be different. I had heard that older lenses had chatacter and I'm starting to believe it. .
It hopefully won't be more than a couple weeks but things are changing in my world so we'll see.
Anyways, till I see you all again take care❤
Keep working on your craft,
Keep trying new things,
Keep doing what you do.
It all works out in the end.

הבוקר בזמן שהקראתי לביתי יסמין סיפור מתוך ספר מדהים שקנינו "סיפורים לילדות מורדות 2" של פרנצ'סקה קוואלו ואלנה פאווילי.
אחרי שקיבלתי צמרמורת החלטתי שאני חייב לשתף.
היא הייתה ילדה שעורה היה כהה כמו הלילה. שמה היה חודיה והיא חייתה בסנגל. בבית הספר ילדים התעללו ופגעו בה בשל צבע עורה וקראו לה בשמות מעליבים. בכל יום היתה חודיה מביטה במראה כדי לבדוק , אולי עורה התבהר מעט.
אחותה הראתה לה תמונות של הדוגמנית אלק וק. "את יפה!" היא הבטיחה לה: "רואה? גם את יכולה להיות דוגמנית."
יום אחד חודיה ואחותה הלכו ברחוב במילאנו , איטליה, וחלפו על פני מראה ענקית.
חודיה ראתה איך היא בולטת בין כל האנשים בהירי העור שסביבן. " חייכתי והרגשתי ניצוצות סביבי," סיפרה.
זו הסיבה שאנשים כל הזמן מסתכלים עלי- אני פשוט יפה !" שנים אחדות אחר כך חודיה התלוותה אל קרובת משפחה שנזקקה לניתוח עיניים בפריז.
אנשים שם עצרו אותה ברחוב כדי לצלם אותה. היא הייתה לדוגמנית מקצועית, פתחה חשבון אינסטגרם שבו כינתה את עצמה "אלילת המלנין" -הפיגמנט השחור. "בסנגל בנות רבות, כהות כמוני, מבהירות את עורן משום שהן חושבות שאינן יפות," הסבירה. "אבל כל אחת שונה זו מזו, וכולנו יפות בדרכנו המיוחדת." היום חודיה משתתפת בקמפיינים שמטרתם למנוע בריונות.
There are times where we get really angry at someone that loves us because of something they say. But we need to have more empathy and give them the benefit of the doubt because it's people's intentions that should matter more than their words. Someone could be really kind with their words but despicable in their actions and intentions whereas someone could be unkind with worlds but always look out for your best interests.

Where I went wrong was adopting every single awful thing I’ve been told about myself as truth.
Because the people calling me these things were people I loved and trusted, so they must be right. I must be those things. I must be too crazy for anyone else to love me, I must be weak because I cry all the time and show emotion, being an only child fucked me up for life, I could go on and on.
Over the years I whittled myself down to nothing, and specifically the last 4 years I’ve been doing my hardest to undo all the damage I’ve allowed in to my life. Some days it feels impossible, like I can never be free and be the woman I am and deserve to be. Other days though I see myself like a stroke of brilliance on this earth because I recognize the past can be undone and I am the author of my future. Healing hurts, but it’s necessary for living the life I’m meant to.
Tag a friend who needs to hear they’re not alone and to know they can choose freedom from the past.

Curated feed vs messier and more unfiltered vibe
Which one do you prefer? 🤔Some of you’ve already answered my quiz (in stories) confirming the results shared in a recent article. Obviously trends are changing and users’ve started posting more unfiltered, low-production photos.
Sometimes I post directly from my mobile phone (see stories). At the same time I do care how my feed looks. Although if I like an image, I just post it. Guess I’ve combined the two choices in the caption into one.
I believe that people just need to see and read things they can relate to. While Instagram started as visual feed of filtered photos, it has evolved into a social network where photos fight for users’attention with stories, IGTV and video clips. 🎬
Authensity matters. People don’t want to see the same photos thousands of times. They are looking for something new. While there are users who use a photo as a way to vent in the captions or comment section, I focus on adding value through sharing my story(ies).🌠
Куриран фийд или създаване на усещане за неподредена минигалерия
Кое предпочитате? 🤔Част от Вас вече отговориха на подобен въпрос (в моите сторита), потвърждавайки резултатите, отразени в скорошна статия. Очевидно тенденциите се променят и потребителите публикуват повече нефилтрирани снимки с не особено добро качество.
Понякога качвам снимки направо от мобилния си телефон (виж сторитата). В същото време ме интересува как изглежда фийда ми. Въпреки това, ако някоя снимка ми харесва, я публикувам. Съчетала съм двата варианта от заглавието.
Потребителите търсят съдържание, с което могат да се асоциират. Instagram действително стартира като визуална платформа за добре обработени снимки, но с времето се превърна в социална мрежа, в която снимкoвия материал се бори за вниманието на потребителите със сторита, IGTV и видеоклипове.🎬 Автентичността е от значение. Потребителите не искат да виждат едни и същи снимки хиляди пъти. Търсят нещо ново. Въпреки че има потребители, които използват снимките като начин да накарат техните последователи да прочетат заглавията им и да коментират, аз се фокусирам върху добавяне на стойност чрез споделянето на моята история(и).🌠
WHO ARE YOU? ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What would you do if you let go of societal expectations and the approval of others? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's preventing you from being your highest self? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I encourage you to pursue whatever it may be that lights you up. How does engaging in your passion make you feel? What does it look like? Really visualize this! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now once you have a clear picture in your mind... go deeper... Really engage all your senses. What does your highest self hear, smell, taste, feel while you carry out your life's mission. Sounds bizarre, but the more clarity you can obtain around this... THE BETTER. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once you've got that vision answer this question: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you warm/fuzzy/burning passion, content, and in flow? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If the answer is not HELL YES, keep visualizing... You haven't reached your clarity yet, and THATS OKAY. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After a Flourish & Conquer Accelorator call today I recognize that my picture/dream/vision is still blurry. But, I am commited to TAKING MESSY ACTION. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have an idea of where I'm going, and thats enough. You don't have to know "how" you'll get where you're going, you just have to start moving without fear of failure. Stagnation is the greatest dream killer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So yell out GERONIMO! And take that metaphorical leap of faith (or literal one if your skydiving like me). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are worthy. You are loved. And you got this! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you @mattyates and all FCA coaches for helping me to grow. I am so grateful for your insight and passion to help others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #igniteyourfire#flourishandconquer#lawofattractioncoach#manifestationcoach#createyourownreality#mindsetiskey#universallaw#selfawarenessjourney#focusonthepositive#lifecoachingtips#goalswithsoul#limitingbeliefs#makepositivitylouder#youareyouronlylimit#manifestyourdreams#highvibelife#askyourself#startswithyou#yourbestlife#powerofthought#ifyoucandreamit#showupforyourself
This one is actually by yours truly. 🙋🏼♀️
An old post, in fact.
I used to worry about being too positive.. that it would come across fake or that people would be annoyed by it.
1) How am I to ever know what people really think?
Opinions will be ever-changing and I don’t have the mental space to worry about that.
2) I used the be the negative person who was rolling my eyes at people like me, with their inspirational quotes... but it’s funny how some dark times in life will make you appreciate and love the HECK outta some inspirational quotes.
3) Positivity needs to be louder because negativity is SO much easier to look for, spot, magnify, and spread.
Gotta make up for it somehow.
This helps me on my grouchy days. 😉 Thought I’d share. ☀️
SATURDAY STACK...🤨🤨 May be unpopular opinion, but I think I like the ONE giant pancake over the stack of small ones 💁🏼♀️🤫 Made this bad boy using @kodiakcakes cinnamon oat mix and added in some @primalpalate cinnamon sugar cookie spice. Topped with the simplest of things - butter and syrup 🤗👌🏻
What I really want to talk about though is QUANTITY vs QUALITY. I used to be all about the quantity - eating a tone of celery and carrot sticks with a small amount of cottage cheese in the name of “health” 🤦🏼♀️ I would find the lowest calorie foods and eat a big portion of those to the point of “fullness” because I thought that was serving my body best 👎🏻😬
Nothing against eating all the veggies, but if you’re loading up in those foods because you’re scared of anything with higher calories, and you aren’t supplying your body with carbs and fats and proteins because they don’t fit into your calorie count, then you aren’t doing what’s best for your body! You Amy feel full, heck I rarely felt hungry when I was “starving”, but I was just FOOLING myself. My body was aching for quality food, not just higher quantity! ⠀⠀
This single pancake was completely satisfying all by itself. I used to think I would never get full off of a smaller amount of food, but when that food is packed with protein, nutrients, carbs, fats, ALL the things, it’s amazing what your body can do with it! 👍🏻☺️🙌🏼
