for an amateur photographer, 1300 is out of my range. we get such beautiful sunsets here in texas, i've been missing out on some great shots lately.
i saw something earlier today on flickr that was a 365 album where the photographer took a picture of themselves once a day for the full year. it pushes you into creativity and tests your loyalty to the project. pretty cool idea. and it just pointed out to me how much i need a better camera.
