How do you react when picking up something new from the post office or the store?
Do you do as I, jump in your car and straight away tear the box apart to get into that lovely piece of new equipment, or are you the calm version of a erupting volcano rushing home to be able to sit down in front of that camera to record an unboxing?
Most of the time when I have bought new camera equipment my first initial photo will be of the interior of my car, it’s not the perfect subject but it’s always there. So thats how I ended up taking a photo of my very own dinosaur with the Leica M9 and the Voigtländer 15mm f/4.5.
I bought the Dinosaur in Thailand 2011 in the airport of Khon Kaen on the way to Bangkok after I got married. The Dinosaur is a symbol for Khon Kaen and apparently it was the mascot of some sort of sports event.
