It's probably just because I'm tired that I suddenly feel flat. Today's been a good day. I had a nice time with my friends, photographing at one of my favourite racetracks. My lovely boy Redoute's Choice sired 2 winners, including "The Love Horse" Lankan Rupee in the Newmarket Handicap. Can it really be 3 years since The Famous Pony strode to victory in the same race 2011, when I photographed her at the Clock Tower? It makes me sad all of a sudden and my eyes prickle with tears.
Nikon have released a new camera. Vinny had one on trial at the track today, but he hardly used it. Jay had it yesterday, and I've been talking to him about it. I feel the same usual restless urge stirring in me. I want the best, and I want nice things to happen in my life. I guess I only have my own voice to now stage that little internal 'Should I??? Shouldn't I???' debate inside my head now.... One thing that I am certain of however is that, no matter how lovely this new camera would appear to be, the voice of reason is shouting to me that I need a new car long before I need a new camera.. I suppose that is the advice many people would give me too.
