Goodbye Old Friend
Its a sad day. I have to say goodbye to my old and trusted shopping trolley, arguably my most important piece of equipment. It gave great service but finally just couldn't keep up with the demanding pace of the contemporary photography world. It was stuck in the past, hanging onto those old parochial views that ultimately were holding itself back and me. As with all things it has been replaced by a new, younger, fitter much more stylish model; its lack of experience in a tight spot matched only by its style, enthusiasm and youthful energy. No regrets we had a good run but we have to make way for the new. Goodbye old friend.
