Without Remorse

I bought a new camera today. Two new lenses were part of the order too.

This is a pretty big step, owing to my reliable buyer’s remorse that accompanies every purchase. Yet I overcame the inertia and laid my money down.

It didn’t take long before I attained a new level of post-purchase hesitancy that can only be described as “pre-hating” my new kit. Within an hour of ordering, I canceled the transaction.

This recurring derangement may have a simple solution.

When I renovated my office last month, I created an area to stage my gear. My original thinking was that it would make packing easier.

The unintended consequence is a constant reminder of the effectiveness of my current equipment.

My digital Nikons and this trinity of lenses have never failed. It’s the only stuff I own that exists for me without remorse.
