Hello//Goodbye

Canon

My trusty Canon 450d and 28mm lens.

My new Canon 5d mark ii and 28 mm lens

The time has come to say a final goodbye to my first love – my Canon 450d, or, Louis, as he has affectionately been renamed.

A few weeks ago, I made the big, scary move to purchase a new camera. I’ve become so accustomed to everything with Louis, so the transition hasn’t been an easy one, but I’m so excited. The photos with the 5d are gorgeous, glowing and real, but no matter what, Louis will always be missed! [*note: Mr. 5d still needs a name. Suggestions?]

I realized just the other day that Louis,  has been through a lot more with me than any one person i know! He was there through all the long, impossible, and lonely train journeys in India, there when I couldn’t breathe on the Annapurna Circuit, and there when my sister Abby got married. Over the past four + years, we have been to India [2x], Western Europe, New Zealand, Australia, China, Nepal, and Indonesia together.

. . . But, the time has come to say goodbye Louis and pass you along to someone who will love you and enjoy you [almost] as much as I have over the years! Abby, make me proud.

Here’s to the future, all the new photos, and to the past – the best few years of my life without a doubt!
