Nah, not the seasonal flu; but a yearnin’ that’s been nagging at me.
I’ve got a small pocket digital camera (Canon PowerShot SD750) as it was easy to tote around when I needed to take it along on a call to grab a few images for the file I prepare for my clients’ who service claimants with supposed transit damages.
Amazing what people would claim as new transit damage, but that’s a whole other story.
While those images always seemed sufficient for the work related stuff, I feel that the quality of the images lacking for the things that I’d like to photograph not because I have to, but because I just want to.
I feel limited by the minimal setting options provided by pocket cameras and have been looking more and more at a select few DSLRs.
While very much a novice photographer, I think a DSLR would increase my interest in photography.
I might even learn how to take a few nice photographs that would be worth keeping and sharing.
I remember fondly of how much film I burned up when I first got a 35mm SLR; I was pointing the shutter at almost anything and everything.
I think I still have a few rolls of film around here that haven’t been processed yet.
I really enjoyed my SLR until it took a crap and figured digital was the way to go at the time, even with the limitations.
I was initially happy with the images the pocket cameras provided, but lately, I’m wanting more.
I live in a beautiful place and figure as I get older it might be a good idea to have something to stimulate my long lost memories of days gone by.
And maybe have a few pictures to share with my grand kids and hopefully their kids.
Let’s hope that if I do get a new camera, I’m well beyond the learning curve before my mind starts to go.
