A photo of the camera on the box taken with the actual camera
Meet my new camera. Ok, in truth its "potentially" my new camera. Its going to be put on trial for the next 7 days to see if it can stand up to my lofty expectations. There is no one I know that will scrutinze photo quality more than me. But for now I am snap happy with what is supposed to be DSLR quality with the relative ease of a point and shoot.
On another unrelated note I have been feeling like I am in a bit of a funk lately. I haven't been overly motivated to train and my eating hasn't been anywhere near as clean as I want it to be. It started to really catch up to me when I started to feel (imagine?) my clothes getting a little tighter and I felt less and less compelled to lace up my sneakers for anything.
Then it hit me like a truck! While I was sitting here worrying over the calories in a cookie that I probably could have done without, people out there (3 to be exact!) where looking to me as a source of inspiration.
It started with an email I received a couple of weeks ago after running into an acquaintance on a night out. She sent me a note to thank me for organizing the evening and felt the need to write:
"I haven't seen you in a while and I just wanted to let you know that you look beautiful and fit and I was so inspired by seeing you on Saturday! You are gorgeous"
How sweet huh?
Then another friend proceed to inform me that "Dude, you are an inspiration" when she found out I was participating in a 24 hour relay to help children with disabilities.
And then, as if this wasn't great enough, a third friend remarked that "Your (my) legs make me want to eat egg yolks!"
It makes me smile just to think that these fantastic people have such nice things to say about me. And to know that other people notice my efforts, even on the days where I fail to, is enough to pull me through this little slump of mine.
So tell me have you heard anything good, bad or ugly about the Olympus Pen series? What type of camera do you use? And what compliments are you storing as little pick-me-ups for the tougher days?
