Days Gone By

After Sunrise

Since the last time I post­ed, I have:

  • giv­en in to the temp­ta­tion and bought a Has­sel­blad 500C/M cam­era out­fit a.k.a. the Has­sel­blad 500 Clas­sic off eBay.
  • bought var­i­ous acces­sories for the said Has­sel­blad even though I hadn’t had the cam­era in hand.
  • ven­tured the for­eign world of video-gam­ing in order to give Troy a Nin­ten­do DS Lite for his birth­day, which was on the 20th this month (got it from evil Wal­mart, no less, because it was the only place that still had any in stock less than two weeks before Christ­mas).
  • also bought a game called Chibi Robo: Park Patrol to accom­pa­ny the DS con­sole which turns out to be the dumb­est game ever to me, but Troy seems to enjoy play­ing it.
  • tak­en the most bus rides in one day in the his­to­ry of my life (6 dif­fer­ent bus­es, 7 bus dri­vers).
  • found out from a grumpy bus dri­ver that bus fare is now $2.50 instead of $2.25 and appar­ent­ly has been since July this year (obvi­ous­ly I hadn’t tak­en a bus ride in ages).
  • been amused by how moth­ers sud­den­ly become video-gam­ing experts around Christ­mas-time.
  • thought to myself that if I ever decid­ed to become a nov­el­ist and need­ed to get inspi­ra­tions for char­ac­ters in my sto­ry, all I’d have to do is take a bus ride and observe the pas­sen­gers.
  • had my man­go seed sprout­ed, and the plant is get­ting big­ger and big­ger every day!
  • mar­velled at how the year fly by.
  • been look­ing for­ward to the new year and even more excit­ing adven­tures of Troy and Fir­da. :)

  1. Wow! A Has­sel­blad! Con­grat­u­la­tions. That’s one heck of a cam­era. No, I nev­er owned one, but that was always the one to get.
    I can’t wait to see the pho­tos from it and you.

  2. That Has­sel­blad 500 C/M is piece of mag­ic Fir­da!! Oth­er­wise you may try Brownie…Looking at your col­lec­tion, a full for­mat wide angles and a 50mm leica would be a dream team…
