Nikon D90

For years, I have always been yearning for three things;  a high-end cellphone, a laptop and topping my list- a digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR).
Blame my parents. They have always taken pictures of all the members of our family but most dominantly, my sister Christine and Me. Since I was months old I was already exposed to camera. In all my firsts, seconds and almost everything I did. At home, we have tons of boxes where Mama and Papa keeps all of our pictures done from film. There are lots of 'em! I swear! There are even pictures which Mama and Papa haven't developed. LOL. True! :))

When I reached high school, I would bring our family camera inside school even though it is prohibited. Shhh!! Don't tell! Hahaha! In my third year of being a high school student, Mama and Papa granted the request of time- it was to go with the flow and change the film cams to digital cams. From then on, I indulge myself with so many picture takings because as all we know, digital cameras give big savings compared to those film-based cams.

Years after, I reached college and goodness gracious! I knew about the so called DSLR. My heart melted when I saw one in an store! Haba! Haba! I damn wanna have one! Grrr!!! Heelpp!!! >.< 

My friends have been mere witnesses of my capability in taking pictures. Although I only have a point and shoot camera, they always compliment my camera works. I always volunteer when it comes to group picture taking and they don't hesitate. At times, they call me for making me take pictures of different things including themselves posing to the max! Haha! And I'm loving my acts. I just so love photography even before I reached high school. 

See my work of art in line with photography in my photoblog flickspeak. It is a blog I made to show my talent and potential in photography which I had since I was a child and brought up until now.

As simple as counting of 1 to 5, you can already make my sister smile. Simple! You only have to surprise her a cone of ice cream. For my sister, it takes around an hour- if you take her to her circle of friends, she's so happy in that point. For my mother, I can make her happy in just five seconds. I can kiss her cheeks heartily ~♥. Likewise with my father; I could hug him or say compliments.

Making me happy could only take a few seconds but in making me super duper happy at this point in time, it'll take for years because I have to strive hard in accumulating my savings and perhaps, allowance to gain around Php 40,000.00. Yes! You've read it right! Just 40,000.00 in a looooong span of time. Haha! XD I may laugh writing here but it kinda hurts knowing I have to wait that long to have my very on Nikon D90.

So? Wazzup me writing this article? Hmm.. I don't know- probably someone who's wealthy and has a kind heart might donate one. Bwahhah! That would be awesome! but I'm not expecting so. Anyhow, I'm off to my Grandmother's house. I want to check her out. Wish me luck in my saving :) GOD SPEED!
