MCP Actions Giveaway

MCP Actions is having a giveaway and she's giving away camera lenses. The following will give you the scoop and I've provided a link to her website so that you can enter this wonderful contest yourself. Now go to MCP Actions and get yourself enrolled to win a new lens!


I am very excited to have my 1st BIG lens give away on the blog. Tamron USA, Inc. is sponsoring the MCP contest for a brand new lens. The WINNER chooses from the 18-270mm (for a crop sensor Nikon or Canon) or the 28-300mm (for a full frame Nikon or Canon).

This would be an amazing lens to have for travel when changing prime lenses is inconvenient. I can just picture this lens on a trip to Disney World.

To enter, you will need to do the following:

- Post to your blog, twitter and/or facebook about this contest (let people know how to enter and provide a link)

- Come back here and leave a comment writing where you posted (with link so that it can be verified if your post is picked from the random drawing)

- In your comment, please write why you want to win this lens, where you would want to most the lens, and for fun tell us how many lenses you currently own.

To qualify, you must:

- Have a US mailing address that the lens can ship to – this can be yours or a friend or relative but make sure you have one prior to entering (Tamron USA is only authorized to sell and distribute in the US)

- Have a Camera that works with Tamron Lenses. If you do not have a Nikon or Canon SLR, a similar range lens for Pentax or Sony will be substituted.


This year's flowers have produced different colors.

This is a color that we had last year. I took two shots of it with different focus on each.

Last is a light yellow. It almost looks desaturated but pretty, nonetheless.

Playing with the Camera

What do you think he's thinking?

Maxx's Pet

I know we like to think that we own our pets, but in reality it's the pets that own us. Meet Floyd. He's Maxx's pet. Floyd is staying with us while he goes to school at Savannah College of Art and Design. If you know Len, then you know Floyd. They are so alike that it's scary. It's also frustrating.

Floyd is a very talented artist but don't take my word for it. See for yourself at his website.

This next picture is one that I took while we were at Lowes. Normally I wouldn't take my camera to Lowes but we had just had lunch with some friends and I took my camera to take a few pictures of them. We stopped at Lowes on our way home and I didn't want to leave the camera in the car. So I just started taking pictures of Floyd, Len and Joe. Joe hides from me, Len ignores me, and this is what Floyd does.

He says he hates his name. Maybe I'll start calling him Jack.
