I went to the photography store in Houston for the first time. LOTS of awesome lenses behind the counter. I was tempted to buy one, but they were way too expensive. I drove all the way up there planning to buy a macro extender cylinder so I could take some super close-up shots with my D70 (this 18-70 DX lens just isn't cutting it and 6.1 megapixels is too many to not get some really close-shots of something), but unlike what the girl on the phone told me, they didn't have any. But, seeing something behind the counter made me remember that I actually already have like 3 extender tubes at my house, along with a bellows at the house somewhere too. I could (hopefully, if it'll fit my lenses) take some suuuuuper close-ups with that thing. I've got to actually find and round up my dad's old pro photography equipment and figure out what I can use.

I took a picture of the new risers I installed on my bike yesterday, along with the new 'nostalgic' handlebar grips (ones that aren't actually degrading and melting in my hands as I ride, as the original ones were).
