What better way to spend Christmas day then being at the airport? As I wait to board my flight back to NYC, my eyes wandered around my immediate area. What can I do for the next hour to kill some time? I reached in my new Lowepro Fastpack 250 and grabbed my D40 out. I quickly scoured the walls for any open sockets to plug in my laptop. Powered up and verified the free wifi. Everything was set — It’s time to update my blog.

Despite being stuck in the airport for the majority of the day, I really can’t complain. Reflecting back on the events of 2008, life has been pretty good to me. I’ve still got my job (knock on wood), I’ve got a wonderful girlfriend, and I have all my photography toys. With so much negativity in the media and the ongoing recession, it’s important to have something positive to hold on to. So I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who’s been a part of my life, and to wish you all a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
