When you look at them closely and appreciate the tiny details that make them the spectacular show that God places before us each and every day. That is why I have finally decided on my next camera lens. It will be a macro lens.
After two months of reading, reviewing and pouring over the many options, I’ve settled on a macro lens that is suitable for portraits (get ready Special Delivery and Teen Angel) and will give me a very close-up view of the world. When I originally starting saving for this lens, I thought I wanted a zoom lens, and I still do, but not as much as the macro. When I sift through the pictures I have taken, I can see this is the next logical purchase for me. I think this particular lens will serve me very well in the things I like to experiment with. The zoom lens will have to wait until my birthday and maybe beyond.
I spent more money today at Amazon than I’ve spent on any one item since I purchased furniture. My finger hovered above the check-out button for a long time before I had the nerve to click it. In fact, I loaded my shopping cart and bailed out three times before I finally had the nerve to go through with it. The tightwad in me has to keep reminding my stalled heart that this purchase is the fruit of pooling all of my Christmas money and hoarding weeks of my personal “blow money”. It’s weeks of eating leftovers for lunch and resisting even the smallest of unnecessary purchases.
The child in me is so excited she could almost pee her pants.
