    I have the best girlfriend ever...

    Not only has she put up with my photo obsession, she's actually started taking a serious interest in it, and she bought a Canon Rebel XS with the kit lens which since we've slightly upgraded to the 28-80 out of an EF film body kit.

    Anyways...she knows I'm obsessed with Canon stuff, especially AE-1s and AE-1Ps. When we went on a roadtrip to the Rockies I saw a girl with a black AE-1 and tried to buy it off her haha...she knew NOTHING about film cameras, so I figured I'd trade her for my AE-1P or something...anyways...she thought I was crazy and walked away.

    So...I finally found a rather beat up but working black AE-1P...and told my g/f that I'd buy it...she told me not to do it...so I instantly knew that she got me one for my bday (coming up in a month)...

    Anyways...haven't seen it yet, and she said she's still "accessorizing" it...no idea what that means, but I have a feeling it'll be good and my bday is not till the middle of Sept...but I'm stoked...she actually tracked down an all-black AE-1P and got it for me...has to be the best bday present ever!!!

    Sorry, it's a bit of a ramble, but I think you guys are the only ones around who'd understand my excitement!

    No such thing as a free lunch. You will have to marry her now!

    And now the photo budget has to be spread between two. Not all that good.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Ralph, once again you are absolutly correct. Of course, there is something to be said for wives like that(I've been married to a woman like that for 15 years now). I enjoy telling people "I've got the best wife in the world" -- has a nice ring to it. Dont let her get away, marry the beauty.

    Relish in the fleeting moment and hope beyond hope that it lasts forever.

    So far, mine is. And I hope beyond hope.
    Thank you.

    haha Ralph, worse things can befall a man than marrying a woman who feeds his obsessions

    Ral/CW: very cool

    Bob: Thankfully her dream now is to get a 50 1.8 II and stop spending money on it for a while, so it's not so bad I just ordered her a remote for her XS too...waitaminute...I see your point

    Jeff: Absolutely! It's nice to have someone interested and I'm slowly teaching her...she's really enjoying it

    btw...here she is....appropriately enough (for this forum) shot with a 1962 Ansco Anscoset rangefinder:
