I've blogged about Slinkachu before. I love his work and how he can create a whole other life in a whole other dimension. Escapism at its finest. I believe that it is imagination that makes the world go 'round.
I received my camera and all its magnanimous parts, yesterday. The manual is massive but I know that the only way to master this beast is to just jump in head first--like I do with everything else. You win some and you loose some but in summation, you always gain.
Holding the camera made me instantly miss those days when I'd set out on some random journey with my camera in hand, ready to capture the world that day--at least according to me. I'm happy that these days can return.
