“Beware, and be on your guard against eery form of greed; for not eve one who has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.”
I have started to look at digital cameras to replace my old one, a fine little Fujifilm FinePix 2650. It serves fine as a point-and-shoot but for anything beyond that a new camera is called for. I have waited about a year after becoming really interested in so-called artistic photographs, just to be sure investing in a nicer camera would be worth it. Well, I continue to take pictures but continue to chafe at my camera’s limitations. So:
Which one? Well, the prices vary from $400 to $700. As usual, I have decided to wait until after Christmas (crosses fingers). And probably afterwards, I will never buy a new camera because I’ll talk myself out of it. Ah well. I dream on.
On the subject of dreaming, since transferring to WPI I have had two major regrets: 1) I would not have the opportunity to utilize WPI’s global perspectives program because of the limited time I have here; and 2) I would not have the opportunity to use the E ’05 term for my MQP, which would free up three classes and a lot of work my senior year. Amazingly, today I received an email from the Tech Comm advisor to all TC majors: “There are opportunities to do TC or HU&A; Writing and Rhetoric concentration MQPs in London E ’05 and B ’05.” Whoa! This would let me use the summer effectively and go abroad – all in one swift blow. Although my heart aches at the thought of being apart from Ian for another seven weeks, I think this might be a chance I would be a fool to pass up. What do you think?
