The 18-55mm Kit Lens

Today we woke up having a cat that Dani picked up while bringing the trash outside.

He said this cat sure has an owner, but I believe it's a stray. It could be just a neat stray female cat that likes to groom. We let her play inside for a while, and Alisha took no time to befriend the cat by force.

Apparently, this cat wasn't hungry but just thirsty. She drank a bit and played more with Alisha. But when Alisha started to rub her stomach, she suddenly tap the baby's hand hard with her paw, and walked outside slowly. Alisha was hurt, on the inside. Then I noticed maybe this cat is pregnant and looking for a nice cozy spot somewhere to raise her kittens later.

Alisha suddenly got super excited. She dragged me into the shower and forced me to take my clothes off. She wanted to go out to look for the cat again.

I was actually planning to test the 18-55mm kit lens properly outdoors, but maybe in the afternoon. But the morning sun was fine, so I just got each of us ready to go out.

Here are the pictures that I took. They're all flowers but my baby really likes to rip them.

1/40, f/4.5, 35mm
1/200, f/5.6, 55mm

1/50, f/5, 40mm
1/100, f/5.6, 55mm

1/100, f/5.6, 55mm
1/100, f/5.6, 55mm

1/160, f/4, 18mm
1/160, f/4.5, 28mm

1/100, f/5, 40mm
1/100, f/5, 35mm

We also snapped other things on our way.

1/200, f/5.6, 55mm
1/100, f/5.6, 55mm

1/160, f/5.6, 50mm
(this one was harder to take because my baby was ready to jump inside)

The stray cat earlier!

Overall, the kit lens is good for quick snaps, or anything that I see daily. But of course I can't use it to take great pictures. However, the ones I took were already good for what I was doing, and the images came out clear and sharp.

Also, the weather was very breezy! Almost all of those flowers I took were moving about following the wind. I can say I would keep the kit lens for general use, it works well for that.
