Where have all the camera shops gone

I just want a new lens. That’s all I’m asking for. I even picked it out all by myself – presenting the CanonEF 50mm f/1.8 II. AAAHHHH! And the crowd goes… mild. It’s nothing fantastic. But it’s cheap, supposedly fast, and great for lowlight and portrait type shots. Not that I plan on taking a lot of portrait shots, but I’m hoping that for less than a hundred bucks I’ll wind up with a lens that allows for some more casual (flashless) picture taking.

Anywho, my point was that I can’t find a single darn camera shop in New Jersey. Ok, I found one. But it was smaller than my office. And they don’t like Canon there. When I was in North Carolina, I stumbled upon this great camera store filled with lenses for me to blow money on. But I thought to myself, “Nah, I can get these anywhere.” Haha, silly me. Nobody takes pictures in New Jersey!

Well, Lisa’s going to look for a couple stores she used to go to back on Staten Island. Hopefully she’ll come back with a little package for me today.
