August '09

A couple of firsts today: first time using my new Shootsac, a gift from my friends and former co-workers at Yelcot Telephone Co.; first 12 of 12 in Oklahoma, my new home state! If you've got a DSLR and more than one lens, you should definitely have a Shootsac....so much more comfortable to carry than a regular camera bag (this has been an unsolicited and unpaid endorsement). Now, on to my day.
