I swapped my Nikon for a toaster
Jun 2, 2010

I have a house full of junk, and encouraged by my wife I have been putting some things on eBay. Having had a lifetime of photography I have quite a few cameras and amny of them have not been used for years. My battered old FE2 with 28mm appeared before last week and my wife agreed to sell it. I started it at £20 and after a flurry at the end it went for £75. Had I realised such a beautiful camera would fetch so little i might have had second thoughts, but the deed was don't, no turning back. Let's face it i would never run another roll of film through it.

So now it's gone and I had £75 in my PayPay account. Our toaster has not been working properly for ages, in fact the last two we have had have not worked well. So I decided to treat myself to a Dualit, a good make. I got it this morning, black to match our kitchen. The PayPal account is empty.
I doubt if the toaster will last as long as the Nikon did.
I'm a bit sad.
Mind you I've just got a new D7 to play with.

Does Cameron look like Postman Pat or what?
