Journal Entry #682
August 10th, 2012
I have not bought myself a treat in such a long time. I used to set my eye on something and then save the money up for it practising delayed gratification but as one has a family and the process of trying to keep that family together you change habits. Money has been incredibly tight in starting over in the new town only buying what we need and only paying cash so we are back to a no credit policy and cash only. I set my sights on a new camera as my old one cannot do what I need it to do.
I waited until the prices dropped and dropped from $450.00 to on sale last week at $199.00 I took all my money I made from busking and I bought it and a new heavy duty tripod also on sale at 35% off so I got it for $55.00.
Well did I score as my new camera had features I did not even know about and I love it. I am out documenting life and it appears I have a good eye for photography even though I would not call myself a photographer. I just like taking pictures of the process of life.
The key for me is getting a good clean picture and then playing with it in photo shop. This is where I have my fun.
I love where I live and I am not going back. It feels as if I should have been here my entire life. I am going to explore the world, document life and grab every moment. Those that want to join me are welcome those that do not well do your thing…
Hope you enjoy these mom;
