In fact, I got a new photography toy... my first true pro camera body. The new Canon EOS 5D Mark II, a wonderful full-frame body with great low-light capabilities.
I went around the other day in the snow, taking a few pictures with the new camera, and got one black-and-white picture I really liked of the Lenin statue in the snow.
Anyway, I hope everyone has been doing well. I'll try to write more soon.
