Cleaning Out the Camera Closet

I am cleaning up and cleaning out the camera gear - getting rid of things that I no longer use - and posting them below in case any of you are interested in them! Leave a comment at the bottom or contact me directly at 

Items can be picked up or I can mail them... Shipping is not included in the prices listed below. 

Nikon Lens: AF Nikkor 28-200 ED 1: 3.5-5.6 G

Used! but still works well. Fits all Nikon cameras and comes with the Nikon lens hood, the end cap, lens cap, UV filter, & suede black Nikon lens bag.  (($225)) // Discontinued by Nikon -- price for others used online: $221 (lowest)

NEW (never used) Shootsac SD Card Holder

This is a four-fold wallet designed as a memory card holder. It has 7 pockets for SD cards of various sizes AND a pocket for business cards. The open wallet measures 9-1/4" x 5" and folds down to 2-1/2" x 5".  (($10)) // price for new online: $29

**PENDING SALE**  Nikon SB-600 Speedlight Flash

Powerful flash that can be used in remote situations - it has two Ready Lights located on both the left and right of the front that can be easily seen from a distance to help in off-camera situations. Comes with original box and soft case. ALSO INCLUDED: Flash Bounce Cap Diffuser. (($120)) // price for new online: $226

Note: The base of this flash was knocked during an event and had to be secured with epoxy. Looks worn but WORKS GREAT! :) Still locks onto cameras and stands with no problems. 

**PENDING SALE**Nikon AF Nikkor ED 80-200mm 1:2.8 D

I LOVED this lens! So great for sporting events or subjects you might want to take pictures of that are at a distance (but yet you still want the bokeh in your pictures from a low f stop (2.8)). Used mostly to shoot sports while I was in college (even got some field time at a bowl game)! Sadly, now that I'm out of college, I don't shoot sports as often and don't need this beauty. 

Compatible with DX or FX cameras. Comes with original lens hard-shell case (pictured), 77mm UV filter, lens cap, rear cap. Might need to re-calibrate the lens for your camera upon receiving to ensure best quality! (($600)) // price for new online: $1,221

11 months on the field and now what?

For those who didn't follow my World Race blog (, here's a brief explanation of what the title of this blog post means:

I just got home from an amazing, life-changing, trip around the world to 11 countries in 11 months where my team of 34 others and I partnered with churches, missionaries, and ministry organizations all over the world to spread the love and the news of Jesus! It was ... indescribable! 

So... what now? 

Well, I have exciting news!

I'm heading back out. 

Month 1 of the Race - January 2016 - I fell in love, not so much with a country, but with a people and an organization, a missionary, and a little boy named Fernando (Read more about it here: Fernando and Angie ) who all happen to be in the country of Mozambique, Africa. 

In March of this year, if all goes as planned, I will be heading back over to this ministry in Mozambique to work with Fernando and the rest of the Beacon of Hope (the ministry) boys, teaching them English. 

I. Can't. Wait. 

Make sure to stay tuned to this blog to keep up with how I prepare and what happens when I finally get there... and... if you'd like to send me any encouragement or just random sweet notes - I wouldn't hate it!

For now... blessings and peace to you all.
