SS I will get my 50 back soon. Looks like your doing well based on blog.

See you have a new camera as well.

oh yeh a few months back i picked up a slightly used one, & a bunch of pristine Ls for about 1/2 retail - an old man in tauranga was selling up, bought all the new gears and couldnt carry them around all day so he dumped the lot, i was amazed at the deal but he said he didn't want more for it, just wanted to get rid of it to a good home. on-sold the spare 70-200 & bought the 50 with the proceeds, worked out great

Hi SS, Hows things going?

Love those fireworks photos. Looks like you had a great spot for photographing it.

That sounds like a pretty good deal on the camera gear.. I need something like that.

I have a theory that cats don't die.
They are the only creature we know so arrogant, self confident and filled with such belief that they are the center of the universe, that they in fact transcend to higher more important level of existence.
The short time they spend with us is simply an indication of how good they are at it.

Anyone else have great skies last night? Took the first one from the cul-de-sac we live in...it was quite ordinary but I liked the tones in the sky... then went into the house and was met the second looking due south from our deck. Just two minutes apart but 90 degrees different views.
