Fuzzy Mittens (and a Wedding)

I’ve been quiet on the world wide web lately. Not that I haven’t been working, shooting, editing… sometimes, I think it’s good to break from (virtual) reality.  A lot’s happened in my life since my last writing, more than I could possibly pen in one post.

  • Cleaned
  • Painted
  • Hung fixtures
  • Installed hardwood floors, because seven consecutive episodes of House Hunters said that was the way to go

Something arrived in the mail today stowed in a box of about four by four inches. The box is simple, mostly covered in red and white. Once opened, all you see is styrofoam with a slit of hope in the middle.

No, seriously, I’ll wait.

Ok, I give up. Can’t wait any longer. It’s a new lens! …
