Even though it's like 108 degrees outside (in the shade!) it feels like Christmas around here these days. I've got tons of boxes, stacked high everywhere, as my new rig is getting assembled.
It's going to be complicated setting up a new rig. I've got my work cut out for me. I've got a lot to do actually. I never feel comfortable with new cameras, I like them broken in, but I'll have to make do with what I have and hope for the best. The only way to "break in" a new camera is to just go ahead and jump right in to use it, so that's just what I'll be doing.
I'm still trying to decide which cameras to bring with me and what to do about packing for my next trip. I might wind up running over to Precision Camera and video this week to get, you guess it, another new camera. I want a point and shoot, perhaps one that is waterproof or shock proof, to take with me too.
If all of this planning we're enough, I'm actually thinking about my next trip too. I'm thinking it might be nice to slip away to Vegas sometime towards the end of the year. If I am allowed to "dream aloud" I would say that I'd actually like it if I could go to Vegas sometime between Christmas and New Years, even if only for a few days. Returning on New Year's Eve might be kind of fun, since I hear New Year's Eve in Vegas is expensive (but fun too.) I don't know, I'm still working that out and it may not come to pass.
Anyway, back to the boxes. Wish me luck and happy unpacking (and, I guess, packing too.)
Until next time...
