Say ‘ello to my little friend

I completely forgot to blog about this, I was too busy trying it out and going on holidays and going to work and that sort of thing. But, here it is, my new friend:

 

I’ve been wanting to upgrade my old 400D for a while now, and had started saving up with the goal that if I found the 60D with the 18-135 lens for a certain prize I would get it. I thought that would maaaaybe happen sometime next year. So it was quite a surprise to me when, one beautiful sunny day in the middle of August, me and Jed went into a camera shop just to have a little bit of a dirty fumble with it, and I found out they had it on offer for the prize I’d set my limits to. I had no choice. It was faith? I deserved it? The shop was actually a time travelling machine that took us one year into the future to sell me a camera?

It’s a mystery. It was mad luck. And I really needed to cheer myself up. Anyways, now it’s MINE (and I will love it and hug it and call it George), and I don’t regret it for a minute. Also, my dear old 400D got relocated to friendly home, which feels oddly comforting. I can’t describe this in a way that doesn’t sound smutty, but it’s hard not to develop some sort of intimate relationship with something you have both your hands on that often. I guess that’s why some people love their car or their penis so much nooo can’t write that, way to dirty.

 Over and out, peeps!

Fototastiskt!

Nu är den här! En julklapp till mig själv! Jag har sett fram mot det här så länge. Jag tror att beslutet kom när jag skulle fotografera på brors bröllop, och min gamla systemkamera började bete sig väldigt konstigt. Ska inte ta upp de problemen här, men vi var helt enkelt inte vänner längre ;) Så nu är den här! Perfekt tajming! Välkommen till familjen, kära EOS 400D!
