When my brother visited last month he asked if he could borrow my old 20D and it looks like he's doing great already. I also told him not to get hooked on buying lenses. Well, if giving him advice on lens buying counts as that. Hmm :-)
Also, I'm safely back from NYC. It was a good trip although I must admit I didn't really do anything I couldn't have done at home. But still, all the little things like hanging out for a few hours in Central Park, ordering roomservice, going through lots of small and intersting stores made it worth it. Didn't take many photos and the ones I got are mediocre at best. They're in my stream just behind this one.
And I fought the desire to buy a new lens! Someone should buy me a lens just for that!
