Yesterday my family visited the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. We're down in Irvine, staying with my grandparents, and we had never been before, so we went. My dad being a great enthusiast of museums also facilitated this trip.
I brought along my camera and new lens (Nikon D40 and Rokinon 14mm 2.8). I also brought a 35mm prime lens for the pictures, since the Getty's website said non-flash photography was permissible and I wanted pictures of the artwork inside.
I had never seen the museum itself, and honestly I would have been happy walking around the outside and on the grounds for the entire day. The museum is situated at the top of a hill overlooking Los Angeles, and is a very modern-looking, artsy building.

Last weekend was Black Friday, and I've had my eyes on this lens for months. I enjoy photography, especially astrophotography and macro photography. But since I'm in college, money isn't something I can just throw around.
The price dropped by a full hundred dollars on Black Friday for the Nikon version of the lens, which was perfect. I couldn't resist buying it (according to camelcamelcamel, it was the lowest price it had been in two years).
Even though finals are approaching and there are a lot of projects/tests that need my attention, I couldn't help but take some pictures with it.
There's a highway overpass next to my boyfriend's apartment, and we walked over there to get some long exposures. It was very, very cold and he complained the entire time. I was too excited to be cold, I think. I've never taken long exposures of the highway before, but I've always wanted to.
