My Birthday Wish List

I hope to do some trip reports of my recent travels soon, but in the meantime I have a few other posts planned.

My birthday is coming up in about a month and I've been contemplating what I want to put on my wish list. So far, I've come up with a few items.

First up? I'm a huge fan of The Sound of Music and used to watch the VHS version all the time as a kid. However, I need my own copy now and the 45th Anniversary set came out a couple of years ago. I think it's high time I added it to my collection.





I'm always looking to add items for my future photography business. This is one of the next lenses that I'm considering to add to my collection. Perfect for portraits!



In the same spirit of helping out my photography business, I'm really considering Adobe Lightroom 3. I already have Adobe Photoshop Elements, but I feel like Lightroom would be a valuable resource for me and I've heard the noise reduction is well worth the price.


I think I'd also be open to a new purse from Niccoli or even a small weekend trip, say to Croatia or the Dolomites.

I want lightroom SO bad! I heard it's really easy, and amazing.

Ahh I love the Sound of Music!!! I left it in our old house and when I was sick this weekend, that was all I wanted to do--lay on the couch and watch it on repeat :)

I'm curious why that lens makes a good portrait lens? I really need to research this more...it just makes more sense when someone explains it, not just a description on Amazon. Lol. I'd really like to get a 50mm lens next and a wide angle lens eventually...though that will have to wait awhile since they're so pricy!

I can honestly say that each of those would be on my list, too. I have the 85 mm, though. I rarely use it, but am trying to force myself to work exclusively with prime lenses.
I hope you get all your heart desires!
Welcome Back!!
