"Kaleidoscope" derives from the Greek καλός (kalos), "beautiful" + είδος (eidos), "shape" + σκοπέω (scopeο), "to look at, to examine".
Whoa the dof here is crazy. Lovely, purple week. I wonder what you'll take a pic of next that's purple!
Yes the DOF on this lens is quite narrow. One thing you'll really notice when you get a DSLR is the sliver thin DOF. It can be a good thing or a bad thing. In this case I opened up intentionally.
