I woke up this morning to the sound of Eric playing the "Dallas
" theme song on his trombone.
We're so obsessed with that box set now. Eric is trying his hand at a southern accent.
"I need you now
The drama level on this show is through the roof. Someone is always sleeping with someone else's wife, or has a huge secret that gets revealed. Blondie is always trying to hop in the sack with that cowboy. Bobby and Pamela are, of course, perfect
. J.R. just gets more and more evil. Sue Ellen is due to commit suicide any day now.
Yes I'm giving updates on a show that aired on television 27 years ago. This is what happens when you move to another country.
Next week we might get "Dynasty
A number of people have asked about the camera I use. I wish I could say.. "oh it's a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II 16.7 MP Digital Camera". Everyone would let out a low whistle.
But it's just a Sony Cyber-shot
130$ dollar scratched floor model purchased a year and a half ago. I LOVE
this camera. It fits comfortably in the palm of my hand, and I carry it with me everywhere. It can also records movie footage. This particular version is discontinued. But I would recommend the Sony Cyber-Shot
to everyone. IF you're looking for an affordable digital camera that takes good photographs.THIS
is the camera I WISH I owned...
That's a photo of the office camera
. We use it for all of our reference shots and advertisement photographs. It cost 1,000 Dollars and was purchased 2 years ago. Eric and I have access to it whenever we want and I love using it. I feel a thrill just holding it in my hands and looking through the lens. I can't tell you how amazing
this Digital camera is.
To give you an idea of the difference in quality. If you scroll down to my previous entry, you'll see the nature photograph. THAT
was taken with our office camera. Scroll down a little further and you'll see the photo of the "Antiquitaten" sign. THAT
was taken with the Cyber-shot.
The photos in this photoblog are taken with both
cameras. But 80% of the images are from my cyber-shot because that's the camera I always have on me.
Okay that answers the question, Now I have a question: I was planning on eventually buying a new digital Camera when I return to the states. What kind of digital Camera do you own? and what would you recommend?
One last thing
, Sometimes I forget how many people are reading this photoblog. I tend to be very open about my fears or thoughts without always thinking of how my words might effect others. I'm sorry about that. I was just trying to overcome my own personal hurdles and write out how my own experiences effected me.
I think my stance was misunderstood. Just because I don't entirely support plasticizing human corpses and displaying them in macabre positions for an art exhibition, does NOT
mean I am against organ donation. Those are two different things.
My feelings on donating my entire body to science have changed. I was experiencing some fear and reservations after my gross anatomy experience at age 19, but I'm not anymore. It doesn't matter what happens to my body after my death, I was caught up in physical and earthly attachments.
Attachments that wont matter when I pass away. To repeat a point I had made in my previous entry: Why would I insist on having my remains cremated or buried, if it could give someone else a chance at life?
I have nothing but respect and admiration for those that have signed up to donate their bodies for science, as soon as I return to the states to renew my license, I intend on doing the same.
So in the end it was very good for me to write about this.
It's friday night and we're leaving the office now. It's nice that we're still working, but unfortunately we're not making much money with this current project.
We called the landlord this afternoon and asked him if he could extend our lease through the month of April. Since we're still waiting on the Green Card and we're not going to have anywhere to live!
He said he has a new tenant now moving in on April 3rd
. So regardless of whether Eric's Greencard arrives, we have to seriously start packing. That's what we'll be doing this weekend.
