day 286: say hello to the big kahuna

I'm not gonna lie. It's pretty grand being your dad's only favorite daughter.

Yep, tis grand indeed.

Take last week, for instance...when he presented me with an early birthday present.

Photobucket


My dad told me this lens would have to be for both my birthday AND Christmas.
Harsh.

Before you feel too sorry for me, my dad says that every year, and come Christmastime, he always forgets. Good ole' dad.

Thanks dad! Text me!! (inside joke) ;-)

Karli! I didn't even realize it the first time I looked. You're supposed to mount the tripod ring on the tripod, not the camera. You silly goose!
