The series of countdown posts continues with a few updates. First with the obvious shown above, another lens purchase, the Nikkor 28mm f/2.8; a quick lookover of it can be found on the Photography Central page above, note it aint in detail at all. Second, while following the Canucks here, we pulled the sweep over the St. Louis Blues — a week ago. To cope with withdrawl, I re-watched all 4 games in-between (in 480p HD). Only until yesterday (Monday back home) we found out who their opponent would be in the semi-finals: the Chicago Blackhawks; while some (including yours truly) wanted to face a battered and depleted Calgary Flames team. Anyway, the series is set to start on Thursday.
With just 2 1/2 weeks of work remain, but before that happens we’re subject to a 9-day holiday. It’ll start by heading back to Kansai area, finally visiting Kyoto and re-visiting Osaka. The camera I borrowed from my friend when I went to Osaka the first time over New Year’s day went kaput on me, this time my D300 won’t let me down. *knock on wood* With budgeting over a 34 day period inbetween paycheques, I’ve limited the trip to a day and a half.
more to come.☆
