Oh, how sweet, would you like me to pre-heat the oven or do you want to just jump right in?

I recently purchased a new lens for my camera that is great for portrait pictures. In an effort to also enhance my photo taking ability, I purchased a "Nikon 3000 for Dummies" book. The plan is to read and retain everything in it.

A perfect time for reading should be while I'm on a plane to Hong Kong! I leave this Friday and I'm so excited. It's a much needed and well deserved vacation and I'll also be able to spend time with my family. Most of my family is there so I don't get to see them often. Hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on a computer and update periodically from there!

First two snapshots I took with my new lens


  1. Have fun in Hong Kong. And love the two pics. Pretty awesome bokeh with those lens.

  2. Yay for new lenses! Have fun on your vacation!

  3. Congrats on your new lens, I loove hot dog dogs!! They're soo cute! :D ♥

  4. Congrats on the new lens!! Have a great time in HK!


  5. Congrats on the new lens and I hope you have a wonderful trip! I miss HK so much...can't wait to go back again one day :)

  6. I have been lusting after a new camera (I just roll with a simple point-and-shoot Samsung digital)... Good luck in your photography adventures! :)


  7. I love the photos, a good lens really does make all the difference! :)

  8. It is definitely an undertaking to learn all the fancy features of a dslr...I've had mine for a year and still probably don't work it right. I can't decide if I want to invest in a new lens or upgrade my camera....your photo is adorable! :)

  9. Love your first two shots with the new lens. I recently got a new lens too (Canon). Maybe I should find the Dummies book for Canon!

    Hope you had fun in HK! Cute doggie! :)
