Finally... a carbon fiber tripod of my own!

Benro C-168 m8 Carbon Fiber Travel Angel Tripod and a Benro B-0 2nd Generation Professional Ball Head.

This should cure my gear acquisition syndrome for now. I promise not to buy anything after this (I hope!) . Have to stay away from PhotoWorld end of January!
Or else, patay nanaman.... IR, ND8, Wide Angle filter holder with ND Grad...

Lately, I've been reading Really Right Stuff. Bad idea. 'm drooling for a
bracket, MPR-CL nodal slide and PCL-1 panning clamp. That's about 500 bucks! Can't afford that shit, so I am hoping I can put up something similar by trying my luck in Hidalgo. I'm sure they have different kind of plates there. Papawelding ko nalang sa kanto! Lolz...

Hmmm... 20mm or 24mm or 28mm?

Closed Window

But you opened it (though on the pic it still closed, lolz...)

You have made me realize the good things in me...
You appreciate the things I do for you...
You understand, you listen, you give advise
What more can I ask?
Love you Abby!

And to the stalkers out there... yah, you kow who you are....
I have 2 words for you....
God bless. :D

Beautiful inside out. No pretension. No condition.

A success!!!

We arrived Manila early this morning. Thanks to all those who have given support to the Black Pencil Project. As of this writing, the pencils, crayons, erasers, and other supplies are now in the towns of Banaue and Mayoyao in Ifugao. Photos will be posted next.
1. I'm so in love right now. I love you Abby!
2. The D90 is worth it. I'm so happy.
3. The group had fun (I hope). Such a happy bunch. I'm so glad.
