Papa bought me two new lenses for an  early b-day present . I have had my eye on these lenses for quite some time. I have a Nikon D60 and already have Nikon NIKKOR 55 –200 mm VR  and a Nikon NIKKOR 18-55 VR  now I also have a Nikon Micro NIKKOR 60 mm 2.8 VR and a Nikon NIKKOR 55-300 mm VR so now I can really go nuts on my photography WOOHOO! thanks Papa.  We also bought  element covers each for our cameras so we can take photos in the rain or snow and our cameras wont get wet ! I also got a new camera bag the back pack type. Papa already had one and I loved it, it was comfy to carry so now I have my own so I am all set to go totally snap happy !

Papa also bought for us to share a Sigma 150-500 mm lens  he has a Nikon D90 and has lenses that he likes and uses. I don't think I will use it much as it is a heavy lens and I don't use a tripod to much  but ya never know lol so that was our day to treat ourselves !

I had a fun day picking it all out from one of  our favourite stores Henry’s, it is the top notch camera equipment store here in Canada  !

   Hope you all have a great day ! I know I did ! Open-mouthed smile

What a wonderful papa to get you just what you want.
I was out in the yard this morning with (out) my camera and the most beautiful dark blue sky and low flying geese in perfect formation came right over me. Well you get the picture. Why oh why do I go out side and not have my camera?
Have fun taking pictures

Happy Birthday, Elaine! My own birthday is this week too and my present is a weekend getaway cause Grenville so wanted to do something special, but I told him I already have everything great in live, including him!

Your photo gifts sound wonderful and looking forward to hearing how much you will be enjoying them and in seeing the results on the blog too!
