Did you ever see something and wish, if only i had a camera, what a picture that would make! It was just these kind of moments in life that inspired me to purchase my SLR.
I love the challenge of trying (like any amatuer does) to catch the essence of what i am experiencing through the lense.
More importantly for me is the the win! looking back through my shots and seeing right there on my screen what i had witnessed in real life.
The only regret i have is waiting till i was in my forties before buying what could classed as serious camera. From now on, not only will i have my memories i will be able to relive them in detail.
