A few things I've been eyeballing on amazon and elsewhere lately include:

1) Creative 52: Weekly Projects to Invigorate Your Photography Portfolio:  I think the content of this book would make an excellent resource for a photography project I could share as a series.  I haven't looked at this book in person yet, but from the preview I looked at on Amazon, there seem to be quite a few really neat ideas to try out!

2) Macro Photography for Gardeners and Nature Lovers: Now I didn't inherit my dads green thumb, but I am definitely a nature lover.  This would be the perfect book for me to read up on.

3) Auto Extension Tube Set: From what I've read online so far, it looks like I can achieve the extreme macro insect photos that I've been wanting to capture by attaching these guys to a 50mm lens.  I also need to invest in an external flash, because these guys drastically reduce the lighting.

4) Koolertron Camera Bag: As much as I love bringing my camera along while hiking, this is something that I really need.  I'd love to be able to have something like this that carries extra lenses, snacks, and maybe a change of clothes for camping or something.  Plus, I just need a new camera bag in general.

5) Nikon 105mm f2.8 Macro Lens: This is the Holy Grail macro lens for me that is currently somewhat out of my budget, so it's going to be something I definitely save up for and maybe buy myself for my birthday in December.  The photos I've seen online taken with this lens are amazing.

Have a great weekend!
