Before the photography bug hit me, I was really into collecting toys. Not that I don’t collect them anymore, but it has toned down a lot since my attention was diverted into more expensive ones—like cameras, lenses, filters and what nots.
These two hobbies blended together when I visited a toy convention in a mall somewhere. Since I really couldn’t afford to buy every Star Wars toys in sight, I made do with simply taking photographs of them. At least I get to bring them home without withdrawing all my savings to the last centavo.
Err, but wait, there’s really nothing more to withdraw. My cameras claimed them all.
