New years starter kit

This year has been a great one. I've been fortunate enough to travel around the world and see some incredible sights. It's funny that the more one travels the more one really appreciates wherever it is you call home. This year I was away from home for the Thanksgiving holiday. So I'm very thankful to be amongst family for Christmas.

 

I treated myself to a new camera this year. My old Powershot point and shoot was an unfortunate victim of a quad-copter accident.I decided to take a step up to a compact SLR camera and found the Nikon D7000 on ebay for a good price. I picked up two prime lenses: 35mm f1.8, 50mm f1.8. These two lenses combined with the D7000 low-light performance are a great combo, I've found. I was able to snap some great family moments during the holiday
