When it occurred to me that I would finally have the opportunity to take some pictures of MIT during my upcoming campus visit, I came to the conclusion that my trusty old camera - the sluggish and bulky Nikon Coolpix 4200 - was just not going to cut it. Don't worry, it will not go quietly into the night... My dad has not yet entered the age of new-fangled digital picture-taking contraptions, and he seems to think my old camera will be a great (read: free) way to get himself started. What will take its place in my photo sharing arsenal, you ask? Check this out.
When was the last time you found the cheapest price for an item at Radio Shack? Believe it or not, that's where I found this camera - for $50 cheaper than everywhere else I had looked. Google, FTW! After calling the store to verify that this epic event was not just my imagination, I sped away in the car to make my purchase. Halfway there, I realized that in my excitement and disbelief I had forgotten my shoes. I turned around, grabbed some flip-flops from the house, and took off once more, arriving at Radio Shack before closing time and leaving - for the first time - feeling like I hadn't been ripped off.
