Still here. Not dead.

I got back from London. I took classes. It was rough. I was kind of burnt out. However, one major accomplishment in my life: I have finished processing and uploading all of my London pictures!

Feel free to view them at one of these two very very similar links:

Tied to this accomplishment, I have another personal goal that I met. My flickr account (the two links above) passed the 40,000 view mark. I don't know why I had set that as my personal goal, but I did, and I did it! So now we're on the way to 50,000. Although with all of these London pictures up I think I'm going to reach that goal a lot faster.

Also in the way of pictures, I am in the process of putting the picture wall back up. For those who didn't hear, we had to take it down one time for cleaning checks to make sure that we weren't hiding any sort of wall damage. But I have talked to the manager and he told me that if I put it back up then I wouldn't have to pull it down again. Unfortunately he is leaving and we are getting a new manager and I sure hope that they keep that policy or I will have a royal hissy fit! (I know how too, I went to London.)

Other photo news. I have made quite a large purchase (for me anyway). I have been doing quite a few photo shoots this summer, and I have made a little money off of them. I made myself a promise that any money I make off my photography will go right back into photography. So I bought a lens! It's used, it's not the top of the line, but darn it it's mine and I love it. It's this guy. For those who don't speak camera, it's essentially the workhorse lens when it comes to portraits.

So, I think that's about it for now. (read: I'm bored with this particular post and you probably are too)

    I am excited about your new lens purchase. I have been saving for a while for a new lens. I have 2 on my lens wish list. One is the 70-200 2.8 (Nikon doesn't have a mid-range 70-200 plus I have a deep love for wide open apertures) but first it will be the 24-70 2.8. And, YES, the price of each one of those lenses causes me to swoon regularly, but I am plugging along! CONGRATS on a new friend/toy!!
