Thanks for the update Antony. I can imagine the set is quite heavy with a large lens on it, and indeed quite large too. Have you thought about getting a smaller and lighter prime lens for those days when you don't want to be lugging around heavy gear?
Yes, that is my room. Got most of the wall covered with picture frames, all with my own work. The one empty spot represents the fact that photography is my current passion: I have to be out taking pictures as much as possible to fill that spot, I have to keep on shooting to expand my body of work.
Now, back on topic, as I recently made some purchases as well:
- Elliott Erwitt - Personal Best (hardcover) --> Yes, you have just seen me holding the paperback version, which was my second copy of Personal Best. I initially ordered the Collector's Edition, but the retailer found out after 3 weeks or so that they never had it in stock to begin with. So I hunted down a hardcover copy (quite rare and not cheap either) for my growing collection.
- Speaking of growing collections, I had to get a second bookcase for my Erwitt books (excuse the terrible picture):
- Bruce Gilden's Stern Portfolio --> Sells for around 40 GBP on Amazon and I found a great copy at Rotterdam's photography museum for â‚¬16. Good deal!
- Robert Frank - Back White and Things --> Bought for â‚¬20 instead of $90 on Amazon. Another deal I couldn't resist.
- Had my own London photo book printed, with pictures from 2010 through 2013.
- Joel Meyerowitz - Taking My Time (limited edition) --> Early birthday present for myself, comes with a signed print and contains two volumes as a complete retrospective of the work of Meyerowitz. Keeping the set wrapped in its plastic till my birthday, but so far it looks like another awesome addition to my photo book collection.
