New Laptop: Apple 2.2Ghz Macbook

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

A few weeks ago, in thinking about pursuing real estate photography, I realized I would need a flexible portfolio to show off my work to potential clients. After talking to some friends and family and doing some research of my own, I figured a Mac would fit my needs well. I found a previous generation 2.2ghz Core 2 Duo White Macbook for ~30% off the original price on the refurbished page of the Apple.com store. I ordered it the Wednesday before easter and received it in the mail the next Wednesday. It took literally 5 minutes (or so) to set up my user account and network connections. This is my first Mac, so the operating system is all new to me, but I found it simple and easy to use. Overall, the Macbook is excellent. Fast, easy to use, and simple, elegant design. Of course, surfing the web and instant messaging on the couch again is great. :-D

New Lens: Sigma 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye

Woohoo! I just received the newest addition to my photographic arsenal in the mail today. I ran out of sunlight pretty soon after I got home from work, so I was not able to take many shots. I ran outside right after opening it to take the obligatory “straight up” shot in my backyard, shown below cropped to a rectangle.

I am going to Pennsylvania tomorrow and I plan on taking some photos up there. I will be back Saturday afternoon, hopefully with some photos to show. Have a good weekend!

I apologize for the lack of entries these past few days. I just got home from a youth retreat with my church to Pinebrook Bible Conference. It was an awesome time of fellowship, worship, and teaching. I had meant to post warning that I would be gone for the next couple days, but I ran out of time. I will be adding photos from my trip to Pennsylvania the days before New Years.
