If Gadgets Have Emotions

  



 ... then my camera would have said, "Whew!"

For the past few weeks, I have been contemplating into getting a new camera. There is nothing wrong about my current camera. In fact, I love it to bits! I have had it for almost eight months now and it never failed on me... ever! It has done its job really well. Actually, it really must because I think I read hundreds of reviews about this camera before I finally bought it. I was a well-thought-of purchase. It was not a very expensive camera but I just wanted to make sure that my money is well spent to the smallest peso.

Anyway, last night while tinkering on this little gadget, I stumbled upon a certain flash setting that I have never used before. (Yes, I don't read manuals that much.) Tried a few shots (of myself - LOL), and WHOA, I loved the effect. Take note that it was already late at night and my photo looked like it was taken at noontime - in a good way. The lighting was superb.

A realization came to me. I am already deciding on totally replacing THIS gadget when in fact, I have never really used it at its maximum capacity. I somehow felt sorry for it and I knew that if gadgets could speak, mine would probably thank me for still keeping it. I love my camera. And I will continue loving it as much as it loves me. I will still think about upgrading, but not very soon. Heeeheeee. I sound very shallow right now, I know. But seriously, how many times has this happened to us? With cellphones, laptops, or even clothes and shoes? Sometimes, our money's worth depends on how WE value the things we buy, not the value of the item itself.

I shall stop now. Emotional now.

Meanwhile, see my outfit (scroll up, scroll up!)? I'm loving my new navy blue cardigan which I recently bought in Baguio! :) It's sooo comfortable and loungy! And that UK flag shirt? I got it from a thrift store way back. I am very much in-love with it.

Happy humpday to all!♥♥♥
