“What’s on your Christmas List?” my wife asked the other day. At my advanced age I don’t really need much so I hadn’t really given the topic a great deal of thought. Now that it was been raised I started to think about it.
Naturally, my mind found its way to camera equipment. There is always something new on the market. One can always dream.
Currently, I work with a Nikon d300s. It’s a great camera. A ‘full frame’ camera I thought would look good in my bag. The Nikon d600 and d800 series cameras look phenomenal. And now the d750 with its wireless capability is also quite attractive.
But then reality hit. A full frame camera would mean that I would have to upgrade my lenses. As well, the megapixels on these cameras is very high which means that my hard drive storage capacity would have to be greatly increased.
The full frame camera is pricey. So too, would the required lenses and hardware changes. There will be no camera upgrade this year. My d300s works very well. I don’t need to make a change.
There are several items I could put on my list but I think that list would be described as my “Bucket List”. That’s the list of places and activities I want to do before I “kick the bucket”.
My bucket list includes photographing the Great Bear Rainforest, traveling through and photographing Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon in the United States and spending more time in Pacific Rim National Park on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I know that my d300s would help me enjoy checking off the items on my bucket list.
In the meantime, I would like to thank those of you who have read and hopefully enjoyed my blog. I’ve been blogging for almost two years. I enjoy writing my blog and showing off my photography.
The image above was taken in February in the Desert Botanical Gardens in Tempe, Arizona. It was a display of Chilhuly Glass amongst the cactus and desert plants.
Best Wishes for a very, merry Christmas!!!
