18 Apr The Financial Year Camera
As the calender ticks over we come up with implausible schemes to stock up on copier paper or send fact-finding missions to Bavaria. It all gets desperate and we are wheeling trolley’s out of Officeworks stacked with anything we can grab. Well, this year we can short-circuit this…we can win outright at the start.
We’ll just grab this titanium Leica M-P kit and gleefully clap on one of the lenses. We can choose the 50mm or 28mm focal length, depending on whether we want to just take a picture of of the accountant or his whole family.
We’ll be sure to point out the fact that the titanium construction of the body makes it 3 ounces lighter and that the lenses are especially anodised to have the same shade as the body. And let him see the fitted titanium-finish back lens cap.
Mentioning that there are only 333 of these in the world…and if we are really ambitious, buying up all the rest in Australia…we’ll then tell his wife that we’re surprised that she doesn’t have one by now. Is there a money problem? Oh dear…
I think we will do it right. Looking into the Leica Boutique we’ll equip ourselves with a fashion bag as well. And a spare battery.
After all, ’tis the season to be frugal. And the price can only go up later…
