11,795 Daydreams and shiny pretty things
It has been a go-go-go holiday season for me and I feel like I need a good old-fashioned rest, possibly on a beach with a cocktail that comes with a little pink umbrella stabbed into a piece of fresh pineapple. Ah, that’d be nice. Actually, I hate sitting on the beach drinking stupid fruity drinks. I’d rather be sitting at a French cafe with a double espresso, a camera, the local newspaper, and all the time in the world. Then after I’m done with my coffee, I’ll wander over to the Carrefour and peruse the aisles for a bit and then head over to the cobblestoned city center to people watch. Ok now that would really be nice.
Where o where has my holiday gone? Too many parties, too much family, too much time spent in the car travelling everywhere. Not enough bike riding or grocery shopping or doing things I find stupidly fun like playing video games and petting the cat.
So let’s talk about something nice instead…
I got myself a nice new camera, the Canon S95. Yes, it is digital, yes it’s small, yes it’s not the best camera in the world. But you know what? It’s damned tiny and I’ve been taking it everywhere without a second thought. So far I’ve been loving the photos I’ve taken with it.
(Yes, typical idiot photos I know.)
The whole reason why I got a new camera is because my beloved old one finally broke and the other has been eating batteries like mad lately so it seemed like it was time to get a new replacement. Plus, the retail therapy did me good. Yep.
Expect to see a lot more random photos that have almost nothing to do with "good photography" and almost everything to do with "journaling" or "vanity." I’m sure at some point, I’ll look back on my life in my early 30s and wonder why I was so freakin’ vain and ridiculous. And I think I’ll also chuckle at my ridiculous early 30s self and tell myself that life sure was different back then.
