The grass is definitely greener with my brand new laptop!
I started to take digital photography more seriously just at the beginning of this year. The role your equipment plays in your hobby is directly proportional to your skill level.
It's like tennis: until you have enough coordination and technique to actually hit the ball, the way the racket is strung doesn't matter.
After using my 8-year laptop so intensively everyday for the Photoblog and enduring many crashes of Adobe Photoshop, I realized I had reached a point in my hobby that the equipment was starting to make a difference.
It was the low screen resolution of my old laptop which led to some poor post-processing decisions.
I had to drive over an hour roundtrip to get a big city with a large electronics store. I had it in my mind to buy a new laptop and was surprised at the size of their camera department. There just happened to be an expert (travelling) sales representative from Fujifilm there on that day. He said he's at that store about once a month. He showed me the wonderful lenses and I was very tempted to first invest in more photo equipment.
Photo #4 is technically not "grass" but I love the tender shoots and perspective.
In the end, I decided it was more important for me right now that the grass has the right shade of green.
