New Lens and Frida.

I got a new lens for my SLR and these are some of my experimental shots from when I went to see an exhibition "Masterpieces of Modern Mexican Painting" at Setagaya Art Museum which is located right next to a park. The exhibition, though not so big, was quite interesting. Frida Kahlo is one of my favourite artists, and her "Self-Portrait in Medallion" was the feature of this exhibition and was just amazing. So powerful and I felt as if it was speaking to me something she could not put in words. Oh I'd love to go visit Museo Frida Kahlo in Mexico! Has anyone been there?

    Hi Mary and Marion,
    Yes we actually had lunch at a musuem restaurant too and did have a lovely afternoon.
    The lens I got is 30mm F1.4 EX DC from SIGMA. It's good!
