Personal: Charlie using new Nikon lens, Walnut Creek, CA (Wednesday, March 10, 2010)

Yippee!  I feel like it is Christmas. :)  I came home today to find packages on my doorstep containing my new Nikon lens, a Nikkor AF-S 50mm f1.4/G and my new Shootsac. They were "gifts" from my Grandparents.  While cleaning out my desk, I came across some old US Savings Bonds that my Grandparents purchased for me when I was born.  The bonds had matured and so I decided to cash them in and get the lens I have been dying to get as well as a Shootsac for my photo sessions. I love how a gift that they purchased MANY years ago can give me such joy today.  Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

Here is a pic I took of Charlie with my new lens.
