Flickr Rant #3
Again not a huge rant against Flickr, but just a rant that Flickr has helped fuel. After spending a lot of time flipping through photos & reading discussion threads, I realized that photography is really an expensive hobby! Geez. I know that knitting can become expensive, but there's plenty of economical choices for the budget friendly knitter. Umm, Cascade 220.
I knew lens were expensive, but some people are suggesting XYZmm lens or ABCmm lens for a good all-around kit. We're talking way over $2,000 for an all-around kit & that doesn't include the camera body. Wowzers! I've flirted with the idea of adding another lens or even a better flash, but I'm not sure I can justify another $400+. Guilt washes over me because it is just a hobby. Just a way to remember my kids when they are cute & cuddly. For the time being, I'm going to look into a nice camera bag. My current bag isn't protecting much. Maybe that will scratch the itch.
Whheew. That was a little rant & I feel much lighter. Now I'm free to project my energy into better places. I'll get back to knitting (got a new book that I'm loving), taking pictures (again, got a new book that I'm loving), getting ready for the holidays (Christmas Ale is out!), finding a good pizza stone that won't break.
p.s. I do a Flickr rant with no pictures? Clearly I'm not thinking.
