“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams

It's just a person with her overpriced camera. People pointing fingers at someone carrying an expensive camera, saying that he/she just an ordinary person who cried a thousand times to ask for money from their parents just to show off.
When the first time I involved in photography, I could't resist the bad mouths been spreading words, and negative comments about "you should buy this brand instead of this and that", "wahhh you are so rich, you can buy a DSLR".
No point in comparing labels and brands, F that. No matter what kind of camera you used, if your photos captivate me, then you're good :) Some people might be good at some things, some might not.
Books keep me accompany when I'm alone, inside a train, while waiting for bus, while waiting my eyes to shut, it's kind of a lullaby.
