If you haven’t seen me out and about in the blogging world, it’s because I’ve been busy as all get out with the start of school and everything else that’s going on in my whirlwind of a life.
Ok, I’m lying about the whirlwind thing but I really have been busy.
I am physically incapable of writing a post unless I add an image (or two or six). I took these this evening while hosting a shoot-out between the Nikon 60mm 2.8 and the Nikon 105mm 2.8 macro lenses. And they’re both borrowed. But not begged or stolen.
(More on all that later).
Last weekend, I posted one of my Q&A’s which I often find fascinating. I don’t know if you read some of the comments that are left by others, but there always seems to be at least one question that bears the most interesting replies. This last time, it was a Fill-in-the-Blank and I’d like to share with you the reader’s answers to the following statement.
One of the best feelings in the world is __________________ .
