I shot this Burning House style pic on a whim (read: procrastinating) in December. If you’re not familiar with the blog, the premise is that it asks people to catalogue what they’d bring with them if their house was burning (putting aside the wisdom to leave everything except people). The blog states that it’s a “conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental.” It’s a pretty accurate consideration.
I never intended to submit it to the blog and wasn’t sure if I’d post it at all. But as some of you know, my D3s died a terrible death by short-circuiting, a problem which I’ve recently been told isn’t repairable. It’s been a big downer, to say the least. The fact that I’m not getting this camera back brought me back to this pic and made me consider again why things matter to us and how we place value in inanimate objects.
