It happened - I bought myself my Canon 1100d! V for victory!
This is technically my first BIG purchase. Dad paid for my laptop and car (thanks Father..) but this is something that I really wanted, that no one else believed I needed (which made me more determined) and so I saved up and bought it yesterday.
It's always been said that my brother is the creative one in the family.
And he is. I don't deny that.
I just feel that my creative talents were overlooked in order to support him. He is quite a little whiz - and power to him. He got himself a drawing tablet thing for his computer awhile ago and he creates amazing things with it! They are like jaw-droppingly good! (I shall ask him one day if he'll let me post one - he's the self-conscious, shy type and doesn't enjoy bragging as much as I do.)
However.. I feel that like a little plant, if given the opportunity, I would also flourish. So I provided myself with that opportunity, because who better to empower you but you.
Here begins my journey into the prickly land of photography..
