I was walking down to one of the buildings to photograph the model railroaders as they moved one of the mobile platforms down to Town Hall to set-up for the holidays when I noticed this jeep.  My non-rational side has always wanted a jeep, but my rational side has prevailed and I never owned one.

It is different with cameras.  My problem is that, in my opinion, there is no such thing as a camera that does everything well enough.  In addition, my needs have changed over time.  As a matter of fact, they even change multiple times during a single day.  I also have not always been so rational with some of my camera choices.  I have sometimes made emotional buys, when the cost was reasonable.  The problem now is that the cost of cameras has risen and my desires have become more non-rational … only partly due to cost.

I hope to be writing more about some of my thoughts relative to my camera choices in future articles.
