Staying on Track

Mr UPS man delivered in the afternoon, and oh my - I am going to start saving NOW for an E3 body to go with my groovy new lens. C says it had ought to be groovy - he was the one who got the call from our card-issuing bank to check was it OK to authorise the transaction.
Actually, I wasn't expecting it today. I saw this morning before work it had arrived in Ireland, but when I got home it was still just showing the destination scan, and not as out for delivery. I have been tracking something else too - C used his Christmas money to order a new bigger windscreen for his bike.
The DHL tracking page may have fancy little logos to show you what stage your delivery is at, but with the poorly translated descriptions, it certainly needs the logos. The UPS interface is much cleaner and easier to read.
 




(The On Track photo is obviously from the snowy weather in January. While there has been some snow on the mountains the last few days, that's as far as it goes)

And how can I not post my first shots with my new lens, too :D.






















We are off to visit my brother and his family tomorrow. It's about a three and a half hour drive each way, so it's going to be one long and tiring day, but it will be great to see the family.
And right now I smell that French Onion soup, and I'd better go and dish it up.

  1. WOW! What a difference that new lens has made Sabrina! Your pictures are always just gorgeous but these blew me away! They are so perfectly clear! May I ask what kind of camera you use? Wish you lived close enough to share some of your photography skills. And you have me dreaming of French Onion soup! Have a nice and safe visit tomorrow! Hugs, Judi

  3. Oh Sabrina, what wonderful pictures. So very vivid and crisp. I'll echo Judi and ask what kind of camera you have. Your photos are magazine worthy. I hope you send some in. Have an enjoyable visit with your family!
