I'm probably one of the few people in the western world that doesn't use a mobile phone.
I know I'm one of the only people in NSW that still uses public pay phones, because every time I want to use one I have to walk about 5kms to find one.
And I know, I know, if I had a mobile I could use it instead.
Well I do have one, but it spends it's life sitting on the book case. I have to have it, something to do with work, we all have one, part of a plan or something. And now I have a new one. It was time to upgrade. I said – just pick me something cheap, nothing fancy, will just be a waste. The woman couldn't believe what good condition my old one was in considering it was five years old.
But I also have a new camera which is much more exciting. I wanted a little compact point and shoot that would fit in my pocket. Nothing fancy as I have my good camera. But its kind of bulky and takes a lot of room in my bag. And when we go out I don't take a bag. So I bought a little pentax that is about the size of a deck of cards and I can take it everywhere. It is 8 mp and has optical zoom of 7x, so its a pretty good little camera for a good price. And the lens is built in so no noisy zooming out. Discreet. I can take photos without causing a scene.
And it takes pretty good photos – heres casey. It's impossible to take a photo of her where she doesn't push her face right into the lens – she's a sticky beak
