You know those dreams you have when you are young, that you think will never come to pass, will never be realized; but you keep them in your heart all the same? This year I’m learning that those dreams really do come true, and today I want to introduce you to one of those imaginations that has become a reality: my brand new Canon EOS 6D.
It’s hard to understand how incredible it is to actually own the camera of your dreams if you aren’t a photographer. But let me tell you, after years and years of dreaming, scheming, praying; and months upon months of saving and more praying: it feels real good to finally have this bad boy in my grasp. “The stars aligned”, so-to-speak, and this year was the year to upgrade my camera game. And I am so, so thankful.
You may have noticed a bit of a difference in the photography in the last few posts, and that is indeed thanks to my new friend. This pro-camera is definitely going to be a close companion of mine over the next few years. I smile as I look back on my post 3 years ago when I purchased my very first DSLR camera, and how over-the-moon I was to finally have the doors open for me to walk the road of photography. I am so thankful that the Lord has given me those 3 years to grow & increase in knowledge, to understand the tricks of DSLR photography, to look at the world from a different perspective, and capture the visual stories I so longed to tell. Well, here I am now, once again a new camera in hand–I’ve grown quite a bit, and I’m ready for a new adventure.
Dreams do come true, my dears, and I can hardly wait to see what the Lord has in store for me next as I journey deeper into the world of photography!
