    Lightbulb B-day wishes

    Why is it, everything I would like to get for my birthday is so expensive? Fact is ... even when it isn't my b-day, it is expensive.

    Okay, check list:
    1. SIGMA 120-300mm f/2.8 DG EX HSM APO OS - Sony-mount
    2. ProFoto 90 10 54 D1 Studio Kit 1000 Air (this will add some snap to your quick shot)
    3. 10' x 24' muslin backdrops (various colors)


    Well, it's a start, right? What I really hate thinking about is that these items are sitting in some warehouse ... UNUSED. They very easily could be used here and now, not there and then. Weird how that works, huh?

    Exclamation What a day from ... Hell!

    Unbelievable.

    I knew this day was going to be something, but the utter devastation is like something out of someone's wild imaginings. Television like this is simply ... incredible and indescribable in its epic quality.

    It's been a birthday beyond ... well, I won't even go there. The tragedy just boggles the mind and makes you search your soul.

    The day was sunny and bright, here ... and the dog enjoyed it. It'll be nice when the grass decides to go green, again. It is an awful color.
