I gots money burnin' a hole in my pocket!
Well, it's not actually in my pocket yet, but soon . . .
Hubby is Mr. Responsible and Mr. Grown Up and Mr. Do Things By The Book (read that Mr. Non Adventurous and Mr. Not Interested In Getting In Over His Head and Mr. Not Live On A Whim) and wants to save our Economic Stimulus money until October to use for our second half property taxes.
Me? What do I have to say about that sensible plan?
Okay, Okay. He's right. I know that. But for goodness sake, let's stimulate that economy!
Is it wrong to want to set a little aside and spend it on something I can't live without? I think not!
I'm in the market for a new digital camera. We'll have a new grandbaby to photograph after all! I don't want a simple "point and shoot" style camera--I already have one of those and haven't been happy with it. I'm looking for a much higher quality photograph.
I've been looking at higher end models, but there's no way on God's green Earth that I'm spending $5k on a camera. If I had $5k to blow, I'd leave my family behind and spend a month on a tropical island drinking fruity umbrella concoctions and having Jorge the pool boy rub oil all over me. And maybe suntan lotion too . . .
But I have swerved . . .
So I'm asking all of you for your opinions/advice/good-bad-ugly camera thoughts. I've admired so many of your photos. In fact, now that I really think about it, I'm struck by how many of you are serious about your photography. I'm totally asking the right group of people for their input : )
(WARNING: Giving me any sort of camera advice surely means I will, in the end, post nothing but baby pictures. Proceed at your own risk!)
