A year after picking up photography, I still have plenty to learn. A lot of it comes from trial and error. Despite the occasional failures that deal blows to my delicate ego, I still enjoy my relationship with my EOS Kiss nevertheless. But more than anything, it's because I've no one else to date.
Now, stop laughing before your chair topples and listen me out. It isn't as pathetic as it sounds, mind you. Rest assured, I'm not a social recluse. I still have healthy interactions with humans. I go out with friends. But I enjoy traveling around, and sometimes friends don't make perfect traveling partners. My EOS Kiss, however, is always more than willing to keep me company.
For example, during our trip to Hiroshima, she didn't complain about the long distances we had to walk. Okay, on second thought, it was me who had to carry her around.
Now, what about the time when we went to Yamanaka Lake to catch sunset? The temperature was subzero but again, she didn't even nag. Instead, it was me who grumbled about stiff fingers and frozen ears.
And oh, she doesn't ask for Christmas gifts, or dinners at classy restaurants, or movie dates every Friday night. It saves all the unecessary expenditures. But then, getting her some accessories - a sturdy tripod, new lenses and filters - would make her happy. They do cost a lot but well, if she's happy, I'm happy too, right?
Most important of all, she never lets me down. Whenever I feel like going out for a date, I just need to invite her and she'd tag along, no turndowns. Well, except the rare occasions when I forgot to charge up her battery.
It doesn't matter if she doesn't talk to me. The songs on my iPhone keeps me entertained during our dates anyway. Still, I only wish she could give me some sympathetic response when I ramble about my problems. Or give me a warm hug when I feel down.
Boy, I need to date a real girl.
Five feet seven inches tall. A member of a carbon-based bipedal life form descended from an ape.
He believes the cosmos has grand plans for him but whatever his calling is, it has not yet been revealed to him. So in the meantime, he spends the day working as a software developer, and whatever free time that is left, reading books. He attempted reading the bible a couple of times but could not as much as finish the first chapter of Genesis. He will continue again, one day.
He loves his camera as much as he loves his books. He picked up photography when he was studying in Japan. But now that he has started working, he can no longer spend as much time for photography as he used to. He is making a small amount of side income from his hobby and hopes to spend more time shooting again.
