Temptation

I’ve been meaning to change my banner photo, but I haven’t had time lately to shoot much. Too many other priorities, for now. Out of all the banner photos, this one is still my favourite, so I’ve put it back in. I took it last year on Staten Island, when I went to New York City in February. It’s been a long time since my last self-portrait, it’s probably time to do another one.

Busyness has taken over, but I’ve also been tempted to buy a Canon Digital Rebel XT on eBay or secondhand to take to Iceland and France. It’s very tempting to take the plunge into DSLR territory, but that’s a lot of money to part with — even with the kit lens, and the fact that it’s been around for a couple of years already. It’s a big ticket item, and will end up costing more than my airfare across the Atlantic and back. I’m sorely tempted, though, and I’m still shopping around for a deal. When I find one, you can be sure the equipment upgrade will be noticeable in the photos. Or, maybe not, we’ll see…
