Tic tock

It is 2:10 PM on a Tuesday afternoon. I have quite busy this morning, but I can't shake this feeling that what I do is so inconsequential. I mean, I like it, for the most part. I enjoy making all these projections and getting all this data in a form that is palatable to users. But there are days when I wonder if I will ever be able to do something that will make me feel like I am contributing to the greater good.

In other news, I have been a naughty Ingrid. I ended up buying a camera. I have wanted a new one for the longest time, and I did not want another point and shoot camera. When I was younger I took some photography lessons, although most of it is forgotten and was irrelevant anyway, being related to 35mm film development. I will have to train myself on photographic techniques, aperture, shutter speeds, etc.
I wanted a new camera so I could go around and take unexpected pictures, then write words to accompany the images. I would love to have a collection of images that are incongrous to their location. I want to write stories and have pictures to either support them or antagonize them.

  8. I had a Pentax K1000 a lifetime ago and it was a great camera. I've read lots of reviews on this one and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
