Depth and darkness

Been playing with different lenses for the new camera. The one I bought showed up yesterday, and I borrowed another. They're proving to be excellent in low-light situations, which is one of the things I really wanted. They also allow me to control the depth of field. Here are some samples (a few more live on the Flickr page):

Maht-

A fuzzy Fozzie Bear... Excellent...

It's so strange that you posted these photographs; I was just resting and I kept opening and closing my eyes to see how sharp things looked up close and how blurry they looked further away--much like your photographs.

Is there an award for most meaningless/boring comment ever? If so, I'd like to nominate this one.

Oops...

I think I should have typed farther in my boring comment rather than further.

Minx: Nice try.

LPW: That's the street outside my apartment. A friend of mine who has seen hos crappy my area truly looks suggested I use this image should I ever need to sublet my apartment.

Minty: I believe you may be nearsighted. Don't panic. An eye doctor may have a solution to your problem. Many prominent bloggers (including the Moon Topples) have suffered from myopia and gone on to live healthy, nearly normal lives.

And your comment is neither boring nor meaningless. It's about vision and downtime, just like this post.

I really must download the English manuals for my cameras sometime just to find out how to shoot at night. I'm extremely jealous!

Nice stuff, Mr. T.

I really like the depth perception stuff here. As much as I love the first shot, I must admit that I feel like I have seen more active tableaus with those Muppet Show characters (ah, the Moonie Imagination). And that office shot is nice too. Is that what it looks like when people are actually working in their office? Hmm.

Nice stuff, Mr. T.

Kyklops: I was very excited. Night shooting is a very big deal for me.

GT: More active tableaus are still up at the Flickr page as well.
