    My virtual son has this passion for photography and has complain severally about getting a camera to foster his dreams. Now, his birthday is around the corner and I think I’ll have to get a quality camera for a gift.

    He will be most glad if I do, though it will be a surprise.

    My friend’s teenage son loves adventure and travelling, sometimes camp alone in the wild. He is to mobile that you barely see him at home.
    I bought him the light weight back pack as a gift. He is really enjoying it beyond what I expected.
