it’s finally here

After nearly 4 months of waiting, it’s finally here. I am all packed and about to head to Best Buy for one last thing.

Warning: Ashley, Kim and Brett – you all will probably roll your eyes at me for this.

I decided against bringing my digital SLR (aka nice digital camera with interchangeable lenses). I would have had to carry it on, and I really didn’t want to have to deal with/worry about it. Also, I didn’t really want to lug it around on all our excursions on the chance that I might see something I want to photograph. Normally, I would go for this 100%, but with everything else I have to bring for 2.5 months of being away from home, eeeeeeh. So…I have a really crummy 3-4 year old Nikon Coolpix for my point-and-shoot digital camera. It was decent when it first came out, but by today’s standards, is not very desirable. I had planned to buy a new one at some point anyway, so some point is today. I’m headed out to get the Canon Digital Elph SD870 IS. I know I could get it cheaper from B&H or, but I don’t want to wait 2 weeks for it to ship to me.

Alright, so that’s that. The other thing I wanted to note is commenting in here. I will read all your comments and reply to them here and there. However, this is a quick fyi (I just learned this). Once you post a comment, you won’t get e-mail alerts about subsequent comments (related to yours or not) on the blog entry unless you click the little box underneath the comment area that says “E-mail follow up contents to [your email address].” You can also unsubscribe from that at any time by going back to the post and clicking the unsubscribe button.

THAT was interesting, I’m sure, but I wanted to get that out early in the blog. I need to get to Best Buy now. My parents will be here in less than an hour to go with Andrew and me to Hula Hut for lunch (I will definitely get the banana boat rangoon for dessert – yum!).

In case anyone is interested, here are my flight numbers:
American Airlines 1372 from Austin to Chicago O’Hare
American Airlines 84 from Chicago O’Hare to Frankfurt

I’ll write again from Deutschland! Until then, tschuss!

    Sarah, wow!! I’m so sorry I haven’t called you but I’ve been thinking about you and will for sure be praying for you. Can’t wait to hear more about your trip!

    Love you!

    Bon voyage and Godspeed!
    Ha, no eye rolling here…it’s not the camera that creates great images but the photographer…hopefully.
    Some of my favorite images in my portfolio are from a 1950’s Leica rangefinder. So point and shoot away. See you on the flip side

    Thanks, Brett. I agree with you. One of my favorite photos was taken with my old point-and-shoot.

    And Sylvia & Daniel – thanks for the wishes!
