    Hypothetical #1 - inheritance

    I have to break some bad news, your long lost great Aunt Maud has died. In her will though she has left you $10,000 with the stipulation that you must spend the money on something photography related.......


    What would you do ?

    Are you sure you're from kiwi land and not Nigeria ?


    Oh, and my 10K would be spent on an African Safari.

    Did she live in an African country where a lot of rich people die and leave me all their loot? (for a fee of course)

    No, no scam, the lawyer hands you 10,000 cash, no hooks.

    I'd but a couple of decent lenses. But I wouldn't tell the ball and chain. I'd tell here that Aunt Maud had just past her military fitnes test.

    Good to see you know the difference between hyperthetical and hypothetical Kiwi .

    Money wise I'd have a nice new D3S and a 24 - 70 to go with it!
    Attitude is everything!

    With my luck the $10K would be on her facebook, in some game like FarmVille, where I could only buy non-existant cows, pigs etc.

    Seriously, I would probably look at buying at auction a photo from the past, that would increase in value. I am happy with my gear.
