if i could tear you from the ceiling, i'd freeze us both in time, and find a brand new way of seeing, your eyes forever glued to mine
the day i posted my last photo from rio i went to a brazilian bar to watch brazil play chile. i took my camera hoping to get some fan shots, however my camera had other ideas and promptly stopped working. i tried to google a fix, but all the methods seemed too complicated, so instead i started googling for new cameras. as my d60 was over 6 years old all of the results were hugely superior and i started to get excited at the prospect of an upgrade. i won enough money at the last world cup to buy a new camera, so i thought there would be a romantic symmetry of doing the same after a south american world cup. the good news was that after the final i had won £805. the bad news was that i had also lost £797. those of you who are quick with maths will work out that left me with an overall profit of £8... and you can't get many cameras for £8. i spent a couple of weeks annoyed that my seemingly foolproof plan of winning a new camera had failed. and then i had a revelation: it wasn't just a new camera that i got before my travels 4 years ago... i also got a credit card. and as of yesterday i now have a brand new toy.

here's one of the originals
Ha! you could have bought a decent canon for that price ;-)
