T-minus nine days until my 30th birthday, people. NINE DAYS. Excuse me while I observe a moment of silence for my twenties.
*there they go…sniff, sniff*
Anyway, onto the more important issues: what I want for my birthday. Yes, I’m approaching 30 and I still make a birthday list. What? I’m not greedy — I just don’t want my loved ones to waste their money on things I won’t like! I’m being a courteous gift recipient by making a list.
In reality, there is really only one thing I want. And I can tell you now that it’s not gonna happen, but it’s the first thing I think of when I start dreaming of birthdayland.
I really, really, really want a digital SLR camera.
I love my Panasonic Lumix TZ-5, but I want a “real” camera. One that I won’t feel the need to replace in two years; one that I can build on and improve with lenses, that I can use to learn to be a better photographer. I’ll never be Annie Liebovitz, but I’ve always liked photography and I’m dying to learn more.
It’s not going to happen for my birthday, which is okay, and I’ll be saving up my own pennies to buy one eventually… so when that day comes, what should I get? So many choices! Tell me what you recommend and why!
