    A Crazy Idea

    David duChemin's blog is often a source of great info, but I think he's gone over the top today...

    Not so crazy. Distraction starts when I carry more than one lens. I usually carry two, but I do get distracted

    Thanks Godfrey - perfect - I couldn't agree more.

    the trouble is that not buying new gear is the same as:

    Not eating that chocolate biscuit

    Not having that 4th baby

    Not buying that new car

    No . . . (the right answer) is always temporary, but Yes is always final!

    Just this guy you know

    Thanks Godfrey. I hadn't looked at his blog in a good while and I enjoyed it LOL. Jono--I just really like your 'list' of similes--and have to remember that ' yes' is always final *smile*.

    I like it! Doesn't sound so crazy to me...

    (Then again, I get accustomed to my old gear and rarely have any desire for anything new - new gear just means spending more time getting enough accustomed to it to use it as well as I used the old stuff...)

    Lisa, you are so sensible . . I wish I was that sensible!

    I really liked the article as well.

    all the best

    P.S. Lisa - I've been looking at your travel pictures - such wonderful stuff (you do get around!)

    One lens only... That sounds OK to me. But, I still don't have that lens.

    Stop it. Stop looking at the catalogs. Stop reading the reviews.
    Why did he not include his own blog?

    It's a good lesson! I didn't have this problem when I didn't own a camera with interchangeable lenses. :-)

    Thanks for the kind words, Jono! Yes, photography and traveling interesting places are my major hobbies. They go very well together.

    Unfortunately, I've been traveling so much lately that I'm about three trips behind on getting the photos processed & posted...but first I need to spend more time with my new GH-1 (which I got a couple of months ago) to get comfortable with using it well...
