The Great Umbrella Debate Rages On...

I'm told that the rest of Canada is amused by Vancouver locals' propensity for using umbrellas in the snow. All I can say is that it makes for some lovely photos😜☔

Working through some of my old lensbaby shots yesterday inspired me to get the Sweet 50 out and take it for a walk. And, as an added bonus, we had an unusual (for Vancouver) amount of snow in the forecast. How could I pass that up?

I think I'm going to keep the lensbaby on for awhile. It's a tricky lens to get the hang of and I certainly need the practice with it. And, although my ratio of "good shots to bad" with it is fairly minuscule, the good ones are worth the effort :)

Funny lens effect with great outcome! thumbsup 
Indeed very funny to use umbrellas in the snow. Nobody, does use an umbrella, because Vienna is famous for "roof avalanches" after a single snowflake - umbrellas wouldn't survive! smile

Ahhh, yes, the roof avalanches here generally only occur in the ski hills😄

Still on my wishlist a lensbaby.

I have the Sweet 50 and the Velvet 56 and I just love them! I've got my eye on the new Burnside 35 at the moment though...

Yes, very important to remain hands-free to pelt your friends with snowballs😜
