It’s funny though, I’m feeling first-world guilty about it. I don’t really need a new DSLR, in that my old one still works just fine. I feel seriously conflicted about this because it’s something I wanted and not something I needed! And it wasn’t cheap (but it was the least expensive one I found…) so I think that’s adding to it. I’m not the person to drop huge sums of money on things (I bought my laptop last winter when mine died on me, and it almost gave me an anxiety attack in the Apple store) and especially not for things that I don’t “need.”
I also stopped taking the amount of photos that I once did with my D40, so again, more guilt. A good photographer doesn’t need the best equipment, just a good eye. I don’t know if I still have the eye, but I want to take more pictures in 2012. Put more up around the house, have a couple of albums so that we can show our friends and family places we’ve been and events we’ve had. 2012 is going to be the year of travel for Thomas and I — two trips at least for us both, probably three for me.
Definitely first world guilt coming on. Ugh. Am I gonna use this? Should I have saved my money and spent it on something more practical? What about my braces in 2012? What about the Mexico trip in February, what about the trip to Coachella Thomas and I want to take? What if what if what if, etc.
Way too in my own head for my own good.
Here are the pictures of Luna I promised:
And some photos I found on Thomas’ memory card from Vegas that are too good not to share!
