Picture Box

Sometimes I just can't understand myself, how I drop-the-ball. We have been without a camera since December. That's when Hadrian decided to put our cameras waterproof abilities to the test! We've made due with our phones and IPads, but we have missed many a "Kodak Moment".
It's not easy to replace equipment on a budget as tight as Leona Helmsley's charity fund. At first I surfed the net and made a list of the cameras I liked based on there waterproof ability, and reviews, but when it came to price I was dead in the water (pardon the pun). Then one day, as I continued my search I noticed that cameras follow fashion trends like they were a pair of shoes. Nobody wants last seasons shoes, or cameras it seems. As a result last years models were deeply discounted, and in my price! It is curious to me how we react to the word "obsolete". It's a new camera, it has 52 more functions than you'll ever use unless you're a professional, but yet everyone wants the new model. I got my equipment for about 80% off retail. The way I see it, if your opinion of me comes down to my fashion sense in cameras I was probably already long destine to a bad review from you, so I'll just spend that extra money on a beer.

Doctor Diaz! Yeah, I like the sound of that.

Okay, the first water test for our new camera.
