(Originally published on 2015.03.10, I have now updated this list to include links to all the reviews I published about these items, including the books, which took most of a year for me to read.)
Every year, my wife and I apply most of our income tax to our mortgage principal, but hold out a little for ourselves. I usually use my half for photo gear. This year, I bought the following, and reviewed it all (click the names to see the reviews):
• Yongnuo YN560-III (speedlight)
• Yongnuo YN560-II (previously reviewed)
• MagMod MagSnoot (flash modifier)
• Cactus V5 wireless flash triggers

• Finex OM-18 umbrella swivel
• Panasonic Eneloop AA batteries w/K-KJ17MCA4BA Charger

• Thomas Paine Collection (5-book omnibus)
* Common Sense
* Rights Of Man
* Age Of Reason
* An Essay On Dream
