    No Brian. Don’t sell. It is not irrelevant at all. Regardless of the feelings of others, your art is for you and it brings you joy, as well as to us who view it.

    • I’ll make you a promise to wait at least a week before I sell anything… ‘k…

        No no no… I want a promise that you won’t sell ANYTHING. ok, let’s make a deal. You can sell… um… a uv filter, maybe, MAYBE if you’re itching reeeeaaal bad, a polarizer. But THAT’S IT.

        February 24, 2010 at 9:03 pm

        • I don’t own a polarizer… so I can’t make that promise… lol…

  3. So frustrating…don’t sell up at all. You’ll only regret it and it’ll be horrible. I know the feeling though! Keep going Brian.

    Fine fine… jeez you’re a difficult one. Men! I tell ya!
    Alright then, you can sell your cable release, since you DO have a remote which is way more awesome. But THAT’S IT (or else)

    February 24, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    • My remote and cable release are one and the same… It’s a cable release WITH remote… So… Ummmm…. Can’t make that promise either… How about if I promise not to sell my bag, as I can always use that to put my sandwiches and drink in…

        Oooh Oooh (I’m stomping my feet now)
        What if I send you BIG SAD PUPPY eyes? You can’t sell when you see big sad puppy eyes! Nope no way.

    What are you playing at? take this post down immediately! I understand what you are saying but for gods sake photography is you and you know it! your work is unique and there is plenty or more of your work to come!

    February 24, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    • Don’t panic mate… I’ve been talked out of selling anything for now…. Who can refuse puppy dog eyes… lol… Thanks for your concern though… Appreciate it… :)

      February 24, 2010 at 11:05 pm

  7. I cannot believe this!!! I totally second the rest. DO NOT SELL them, ever. Unless you get yourself brand new equipment that are far better than what you currently have right now. You have spent a fortune on them and selling them is not an option!

    February 25, 2010 at 12:35 am

    • Don’t worry Attiev… I have changed my mind… for now… Thanks anyway… :)

    er…why are you selling this equipment. i may not be an avid photographer. but i have seen and been with people who are. and if you are a person who is passionate about this kind of thing, you have spent a lot on it. and if you still like this activity. don’t sell. don;t quit.

    or have you the passion for this…?

    February 25, 2010 at 2:56 am

    • It’s ok… I’ve promised someone I’ll not make any hasty decisions, so for now at least the gear stays… :)

      February 25, 2010 at 8:29 am

    Yay….youve seen sense!! However, just so’s you know….ive started a little savings fund for the 50D….one can dream lol

    February 25, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    • LOL… Well you’ll get at least 2weeks notice of any pending sale of gear… so best make sure you’ve a back up plan to boost the savings just in case… ;)
