From Across My Desk:
(Calling all photographers with their thoughts please)
Dear Penny, my sister gave me her used Nikon d3300 digital SLR camera so I'm investigating telephoto lenses. Do you find that autofocus and VR vibration reduction are very important? Our outfitter for Africa advises a 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 telephoto.

I'm a Canon kinda guy but whenever I can use a Canon lens with stabilization I do it. It helps in low like and action.

I find both autofocus and VR very helpful. I use the back focus button most of the time to lock my focus in with autofocus and if using any kind of telephoto it's very helpful to have VR. I have shot with a 400 mm lens and autofocus becomes even more important with the longer lenses, and I use tracking a lot too.

I'm going to Africa and looking for a modestly priced telephoto for wildlife shots. I'm distinctly an amateur so not looking to spend a lot of money. Will it make a lot of difference for me to get a lens that goes up to 300mm vs. 200mm?

What was the most expensive hotel room youve ever booked?

Comment on Facebook

Goodness, $83,000 for a night! I cannot imagine why anyone would want to pay that much for a room. Give me: Target sheets, a firm mattress, fluffy white towels and some smelly, body wash and I'm happy. A/C is also good in Asia and preferably my room is not located near a Buddhist Monastery where I am woken at dawn with the monks. I could travel forever with a budget of $83,000!

Holy cow!!' I could too 🙂

I can’t say I knew a lot about this town, but I can tell you that Eating Tapas and Exploring Cartagena in Spain was one of those serendipitous moments. This city was amazing. It was very good looking. It was fascinating to explore. The food was insanely good, and the price of the food was so low that it was embarrassing.

No one ever tells you before travelling to Egypt that the Pyramids are surrounded by suburbia.

I have been there 3 times. Love Cairo. Visit the largest Mosque, visit old town where you can see true artisans at work, visit a Synagogue and a Coptic Christian Church. And you need to see the other archeological delights of Egypt. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Everyone
This is your Admin speaking.
Lately, we have had a few new contributors ASKING for "votes," "likes" and "follows" for their posts or new sites on social media. Quite honestly, if you have to ask our members for approval then that is a sure fire- way of NOT getting them here.
My tip - work hard, provide quality work and you will get there in the end.
