I am Going to get Myself a Camera

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” 
 -Ansel Adams

Owning a nice Cannon/Nikon camera has been on my list of things to have for a while, but it has never been at the top of that list. But recently, I've been thinking, I want a nice Camera that I can bring places and take craptastic pictures with. Mmmhm.

Now I just need to save 500-1500 dollars, and get my parent's approval.. that might be a bit difficult...

But let's say that I do get their approval, now where do I get the money from? Because I'm a student, my bank account is like the Sahara, it's basically deserted with the lone random tree and animal here an there. I don't have 1k that I can just pull out of nowhere. I also don't think my parents would be all that keen to spend that much on "just a camera", unless I wait until I graduate, and get one as a gift? Nah.

So. Now what? Get a job? I don't think my parents would approve. I know. How am I suppose to learn skills that I need in the real world without a job? I don't know. I don't know my parent's confuse me sometimes. Hmm.. so.. what does that leave me? I could sell my stuff? What stuff? Textbooks? And clothes? Ha. Maybe for like a fraction of what I need to buy the camera...

I could steal it?

HA. You're funny. Me steal? That's like Taylor Swift or some other golden girl turning into a drug addicted alcoholic prostitute. You my friend are hilarious.

So... What can I do? Who knows. But I will get one, someday soon, and then you'll be seeing my pictures on billboards in New York. Just kidding more like Tumblr. I might turn this blog into a whatever it is now/photography blog. Yay! More posts, in which I don't actually have to think of things to write! It'll be a nice break from all my ramblings. Ha.

BUT WAIT

I'm a clutz, I am going to drop it on the first day and have it smash into a billion pieces and then I'll just be like d'awww. 1k down the drain...So... getting a DSLR camera might not be my brightest idea ever.

Well. That was just a random update that had no meaning to it whatsoever. 

But I shall update you on this adventure of mine, in a few months perhaps! But before that, Canon or Nikon? Or something else?
