    After shooting mostly sports on 35mm for the high school yearbook, I lost interest in the hobby. After getting some good lightning shots with a borrowed d90, I'm getting back into it.

    Picked up a g1/14-45 when they were being blown out awhile ago, followed by the 20, and most recently the 9-18 and a used GF1 for an upcoming vacation.

    Currently debating current tele options against next years 35-100.

    Wish I could send you some of ours. It has been dry lately but earlier in the summer Rome seemed to gain a monsoon season. My cousin in Albuquerque said that until a couple weeks ago they had less than 1 inch for the preceding year. Guess the drought is pretty widespread

    Speaking of wetter, I'm here in Austin. Yesterday when I looked at the forecast, there was a small chance of rain on Sunday. Now, it's showing a chance of rain for the next few days, with Friday and Sunday having scattered thunderstorms! What city are you in?
