Lens play to start the day

I’m not one for getting technology or gadgetry to do all the work for me, but there are certain tools that can make a job easier. One that I have wanted, particularly for photographing my work and for dealing with low-light or reduced-natural-light situations is a lens with a particularly large aperture. Last night I bought a second-hand Nikon lens, a AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens (and probably funded a starving student’s grocery bill for a week) and have taken a couple of quick shots. The one above  was taken to evaluate the crispness of colour and light and the shot below, to see what the depth of focus (that thing that makes one part of the picture sharp and the rest fuzzy) play potential reveals .

I am not disappointed. More later, after I do some more controlled shots.
