    My wife and I just got back from a short, but very welcome vacation down in Puerto Vallarta. Here, have some postcards.

    I'm usually more of a zoom guy, but for this trip I left them at home and took the 35, 55, and Contax 90 with me.

    I discovered that it's a lot easier to shoot with a prime lens when you always have a mango margarita in your left hand.

    As you might guess, I was pretty much blissed out the entire time.

    My wife, who actually had to talk me into coming down here for the first time some 34 years ago.

    I'm not the sharpest stick in the bundle, but I did marry well. :D

    Really nice set David. Especially the flower and the portrait.
    Also, Has nothing to do with pictures, but I love how you revere your better half so openly. She's a beautiful woman, but so many of us forget this after the ring goes on.
