I went to a wedding without taking a camera with me. I'm so proud of myself. There were two photogs covering the event and I didn't even stand around and try to talk shop. I just let 'em work and acted like another random guest. Felt pretty good. Like being a celebrity in a public place and nobody recognizes you.

On the other hand, the little disposable camera on our table at the reception should have some rather interesting photos on it when it gets developed. :D

that's asking for quite a bit. I can't even type bhphotovideo.com into my computer without buying something. :)

LOL - I'm about there as well. And since I typed it, well, I did buy something. NOthing extravagent, mind you, but a couple of smaller items that I needed.

You know we all talk about the website, and customer service we get from B&H....but how about the LUCKY people who live in and near New York......who can go to the store! What it must be like to walk in and see all that camera gear......Oh God the humanity......

Is there a camera gear buyers anonymous? 12 Step program maybe;)

Considering we only have one store within a decent driving distance, that usually isn't much of a problem. The problem comes with seeing something there that I really like, then getting home and finding a good price at B&H. The mouse pointer hovers over "Add to Cart" much too often. :D
