A Great Day with a Giveaway

Today turned out to be a pretty good day thanks to Scott Bourne who if you are not aware is a professional photographer who is responsible for and is also a guest at times on the Macbreak weekly podcast. Scott often does photography related giveaways to people who follow him on Twitter. Today was my lucky day. I received a $100 dollar gift certificate for Lens Coat who make protective neoprene sleeves and cases for photography equipment. This is perfect timing, as I was able to use this to place an order of a cover for my new Canon 70-200 2.8L IS lens.

I also placed a lens on reserve today for me to use at Dragon*Con. Hofmann asked me to help with the Rebel Legion picture, and I have wanted to try out a nice wide angle lens, so I reserved a Tokina 11-16 2.8 from They are located in Memphis, so thanks to Chase, I won’t have to pay any shipping as he is going to pick it up for me when he gets the lens that he is renting for the con.

On Saturday I am finally going to make it to a Nashville Roller Derby bout. I have wanted to go to one since the event in Indiana, and but I have not been able to make it work with my schedule. I hope that I can get some decent pictures to give to a couple of my friends who are referees.
