The Birth of Sophie Annabelle

Sophie Annabelle was born exactly a week ago, November 14, 2012 at 1:12 pm. I assembled here a little photo essay to show the process. It's a very special and touching moment in one's life and each shot is loaded with emotional tension, at least to me (even though I might be biased since it's my family). All was shot with the D600 and the 50mm f/1.8 together with the 24-85VR.

Giant RS930 Road Bike

This road bike was built in 1988 and it has a classic steel frame CrMo 4130. I've been riding it since early July and I must say that I'm impressed.
From that first moment you stand up to sprint to the line or the top of the climb, it's as if you've slammed the gas pedal to the floor. Whether you're racing or training, the RS930 can handle the longest days on the pavement.
I love new gear, but there is so much good stuff, classic stuff out there and I'd urge anyone to give it a try before hitting the trigger button, dumping thousand of dollars on the latest and greatest bicycle.
