Well, I took the plunge and bought a new camera!
A Fujifilm FinePix F200 EXR. I’m still not really sure what that means, and, as usual, I am suffering from post-purchase anxiety and not quite sure if it’s exactly what I need. Aside from wicked travel pics, I bought the camera because I need better shots of the products in my Etsy shop. I’m still playing and learning all the camera settings. I think the pics will be better. But I am a perfectionist when it comes to this type of thing. So I really don’t know yet.
Maurice: And other news…
Lists! I am starting to make lists of what I need to do before I go overseas (even tho I haven’t heard definitively from anywhere yet).
- Ask my friend Shawn if I can store my stuff in his big, empty basement
-Visit the doctor and find out what the best thing to do about my prescription meds is
- Visit the dentist for a check up
- Find out what vaccinations I’ll need (if it is Micronesia I’m going to)
- Find out where I can buy insurance – something I admit to not doing when I went to Poland…which I think I’ll do this time just for my poor mother’s sake!
And the list goes on.
I am now reading “An Imperfect Offering: Humanitarian Action in the Twenty-First Century” by James Orbinski, who helped establish the Canadian chapter of Doctors Without Borders/MSF. Good so far, just started.
