A Gift to Myself

For my 32nd birthday I gifted myself a new camera and I am completely and totally in love. Like really, truly head over heels. It is everything I hoped it would be, and the photos it takes are unbelievable. Fast. Sharp. Bright. Full-frame. I have so much to learn and I am enjoying every minute of it. And its maiden voyage, to Thailand in my backpack, was oh so much learning fun. I can see the difference between the photos I took at the beginning of the trip and the ones I took toward the end, a mere two weeks later—how neat to have evidence of one's own progress.

Learning is the greatest. And so is this camera.
