Photo by myself of a coffee cart on Fifth Avenue.
Like many cities, there are carts for lots of things here - shwarma, crepes, bagels, waffles, hot dogs, pretzels and soup. You don't have to have a storefront, just a spot on the curb.
I'm all excited about my new camera.
I don't have it yet, though I've just gotten the lens. I've been looking online for the last several weeks, mostly on ebay, for a Canon 40D digital SLR.
Weighing 1 1/2 lbs with the battery, this will be a big change from the camera I have now, which is not an SLR. The 40D won't be so portable for impromptu candids on the subway, but who knows. Hopefully I'll figure something out.
I feel very indulgent and nervous about this purchase. It's a lot of money to go toward a frivolous object. And I can't drop this thing, ever. I can be quite the flake, so this fact is upsetting.
My current G5 has been batted around a bit. I carry it all the time, without a case in my flimsy purse. It's been dropped at least once. I screamed inside when it happened.
I have to also wonder whether the new camera will provoke me to look at the world differently. It's exciting.
