I’m Back… Almost… And With Some New Gear.

Well, I never really went anywhere… I just haven’t been shooting many photos in the last couple of weeks. I’ve been taking the camera bag with me everywhere I go, but just haven’t shot. Maybe I’m looking too hard, looking in the wrong direction or just not seeing at all.  A friend told me that I would never find anything to shoot unless I go out and look for it. I’ve really tried, but to no avail. So I’m thinking about just shooting away the next time I go out. Upload everything and see what I can do with the images once they’re on my hard drive. It’s worked for me in the past, so that’s what I’m going to try to do.

Here’s a shot of one of my new toys. I just got the Nikon 85mm f/1.8 this week.  This is the lens that I’ll be using in my new venture of just firing away.



Another of my new toys is this Blackberry Torch. I needed a phone with the ability to send and receive emails for work. It’s got a 5 megapixel camera in it, so I have no excuse to miss any photo opportunities. It’s not as good as the iPhone’s camera, but it will do.



I took this shot at the casino the other night with the Blackberry. You have to love it when people get “married” to a hand and just don’t know when to fold. I had a pretty nice run of cards that  helped me double up and then some. That little trip to the casino pretty much paid for the 85mm lens and next month’s phone bill.


Well… I better get away from the keyboard, pick up my camera and go for a ride. Who knows what I’ll find? Stop back and see.

I just started a page on Facebook. Check it out and click the Like button.
