Agree on the tilt shift! I just got the canon17mm tilt shift with the rebate this past Christmas and am blown away by it! Especially for architecture shots.
I was struggling to pic a photo to post tonight (just got back from a great dinner, with way too much wine, including a port with desert!), when I noticed someone favored an old pic of mine on Flickr, so I am going with it!
This is one half of the duo of my two best friends Lenny and Carl. This is Carl having a snooze, in a photo I originally captioned, "Happiness is a favorite blanket!"
