Okay. So maybe I don't need it. But I really, reallywant it.
The camera that I'm currently using is six years old. It's worn and beat up and it has served me such great purpose over these last six years. I love my camera and I may never, ever get rid of it. It is my first DSLR, my baby. I have learned and grown and been through so much with it that it's worth way more to me sentimentally than what it will ever be worth monetarily - which isn't much at this point.
But I have outgrown it. Truly - I have.
I'm having a really hard time explaining this to my husband. Although he's willing to start setting money aside for this investment, he also doesn't 'get' why a new camera will help me create better photos. He doesn't understand ISO or shutter speed or megapixels or the fact that a camera can only take so many 'clicks' before it begins to wear out.
I get that.
It's hard sometimes however to see someone go out and buy a new DSLR like it's a drop in the bucket while I have to wait and wait and wait. Although waiting will allow me more appreciation and more excitement when the time finally comes, it's still hard.
Anyway - here's a few photos captured with my beloved camera lately. Photos that I love. Photos that I can create even with a camera that is 'old and outdated'. Although I am waiting, I am still so extremely blessed.
