What a wonderful, warm day!!!

I woke up this morning on a mission....see yesterday I HAD to get a new lens...now Donna before you get up me...I couldn't afford to get the Nikon 18-200mm VR yet...so thought I would have to get one now...and then get the super dooper one maybe next year and I couldn't wait for a len. So...don't choke on your cornflakes...I bought a Tamron 70-300mm lens. This is what I produced from it.
These two mates looked like they were having the nicest time. The weater was lovely and they looked so relaxed. I zoomed right in on them ...and they didn't know. :)

This wonderful older gent was such a nice man. He is 94..in 4 months. He was a missionary..has a son and a daughter..his wife has died and she was 92. He told me so much about himself. I really enjoyed talking to him. Might run into him again one day I hope. He was so bright. He worried about his memory and I made him laugh when I reminded him that in the past 93 years he has stored so much information in his head so it is okay if he forgets a few things.

This little family were gorgeous. The greens keeper was mowing and his mum kept telling him that he was after him. He was worried...and looked straight into the lens...so cute!!!

And finally....I couldn't wipe the smile off my face!!! It is a bit blurry....because I was shaking with sxcitement!!!! What a wonderful day!!!! Photography is a fantastic hobby!
