ex machina

it's for the baby! honest.

i've had an itch for a digital slr camera for several years, but i haven't been able to justify the purchase since, until recently, nothing came close to the price and performance that i could get from my entry level nikon n50& nothing, that is, until i saw the the nikon d70.

while it's nearly a grand just for the body, i put the word out on the street that for for my birthday i was accepting contributions for a digital camera& i'll admit to resorting to telling grandparents and other unsuspecting relatives that i wanted a nice digital slr camera so i could send everyone pictures of the baby.

you have to do what you have to do, right?

the best thing about the d70 is that i can use the lenses that i already have for the n50. despite that and having a little birthday money burning a hole in my pocket, i still quite bring myself to make the purchase.; the pragmatist in me wants to wait until the price drops. we'll see how long i can hold out.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
