For the last 2-3 years I have annoyed my friends, chattering on about how I wish I could meld my Canon EOS Rebel 35mm camera with my Sony PowerShot; digital SLR cameras are certainly nothing new, but I just couldn't justify spending close to a $1K on one. I still cannot, although I found a work-around.
First, let me just state that although I probably should have been more conservative with my limited funds, I only have a few hobbies, which include writing, shooting pool and photography (one day when I'm rich and famous I'll indulge my inner race car driver). So I've made due with iPhone camera apps, and the results have been...most disappointing.
So now that I'm working again I have been able to quietly put aside some cash in the last month. I've also been cutting every expense I can, for example I'll walk the 1.5 miles to and from my gym to save on fucking bus fare. I roll my own smokes. I only eat at home. I drink PBR. With the end goal being I can buy a new AWESOME camera.
And I fucking did it. I did it.
PS - I named it "Montrose". I'll be wagging my imaginary Golden Retriever tail for the next 7-10 days until it arrives!
