I took these about a month ago when I rented the dreamy Nikon 18-200 VR lens. It was a pretty sweet lens. I am going to buy a new lens when school starts, but I am going to wait and see what they recommend. The 18-200 VR is on the short list, well, until they tell me otherwise. I might have to anti up for a professional lens, which would be as equally dreamy, but a lot more money. As a side note, I was daydreaming today about the rental equipment room that I am going to have access too. I felt like Tim Allen dreaming about tools.
This is what I see on an almost daily basis around these parts. I try not to take the view for granted, because not everyone works in a spot this great. I will not be working here forever, so I try to "soak it up" as my sister would say.
