new computer and random photos.

I got a new computer!! A 27 inch iMac, and its amazing. I will never regret spending two whole paychecks on this bad boy, it was so necessary and completely worth it.
I can edit photos without it taking hours, it doesn't freeze, the screen is soooooo massive. I'm in love.

The only thing is that I am having irrational fears of my cat knocking it over so I'm now terrified to leave my apartment. I'm going to have to build some massive barricade thing to put around/over it when I'm not at home so I don't have a heart attack. 

So here is the first post from it. Photos from the past few weeks of some everyday things going on.

Gorgeous. Congrats on your computer. Mine currently has a HUGE spiderweb effect instead of a proper screen because I dropped a pasta pot lid on it a few weeks ago. Considering dropping several paychecks for a new one as well. Jealous. ;)

I surprised myself by how much i have become attached to my new mac. It's worlds away from the old bomb i used for years! Love your Warhol inspired mug haha

Congratulations on your new machine! These are beautiful photos, I can't wait to see what else you produce.

I totally understand. While I don't have the same cat worries (since I don't have a cat) my iMac is the only non-human thing I truly miss as I am travelling the world. Sad? Nahhhh.

Enjoy the magnificence and I hope nothing bad should happen to it:)

I'm so pleased I'm not the only one - I love my computer so much. I hate working on anything else. Also working on a big screen is just magical for photography.

Also have major carrot envy - must sort out my garden!

Veronica Armstrong said...

Sigh these are all just so gorgeous. YAY new computer :)

Lovely, lovely images! I particularly like the mood of the carrot shots. And I'm uber jealous of your iMac - my PC is awesome, but I still covet a Mac. SOMEDAY... :)

iMac! Great investment. I use Macbook and truly understood the joy of getting bigger screen for blogging.
