Default A Couple of Charming Items

We picked up a Canon EF50mm f/2.5 Campact-Macro today and had a little fun before it got too dark. Tried it out on a couple of Charming items!

That first charm came from Munich (Munch-en) Germany. Out of 25 years with BMW I was over there 17 times. I would pick up a Stiff Stuffed Animal for our Daughter, a Dresden Knife for our son and a Charm for Annette's Bracelet. That little beer stien was a wonderful little creation and one of my favorites for Germany. I hve the bigger version as well!!! Cheers or Proust!!!!

The African charm was sent to me on a Card from TVL from South Africa and I love it too death!!!!! I would give my arm to go there some day! I hve some friends from BMW of South Africa and some others including PhotoCamel I would love to see or see again!!! The African Cultures are a favorite of mine to study. The people of Africa have not been given the credit for the great civilizations they had! Can you imagine going there and studying for a while. Wow!!!! I would hack the RV for the Money to buy some good extra camera equipment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

by for now!

John, Thank you so much for looking in on one of my older captures. I've been hanging around PhotoCamel for a while now and have made some great friends here. Also leaned more than I can ever repay to some of my mentors.
Like I said, South Africa is one of my hopeful places to travel to. I have friends there I've meet personally and some only on here or E-mails. To walk into one of their studios to say hi would be an unbelievable experience!! From my studing, you have a very divers country. Also, I see by your name, we might have the Dutch Ancestory in commen! Family on Dutch side were the Van Dusens! Thanks again and the best to you! May the Creator watch over you and your family! Dakota
