This past week, I got to visit with the boy for the first time in almost two months! Since we usually visit once a month, it felt like it had been forever. So we had a great time with our visit, including a fun trip to the Des Moines Zoo. I was also using my 55-250mm lens for only the second time (the first time was for the parade pictures last week) and the zoom was fantastic! I do hate it a little that it becomes physically impossible for me to take pictures of anything too close, but I also think it’s a fun challenge to make all my pictures work without changing lenses. I’ll definitely be using it more often!
