Lunch :: Breakfast at Tiffany's with Dina

I have a small, sad history of bad luck with cameras. My old point-and-shoot, a GE-A735, broke in 2010. For Christmas that year, my parents got me my first DSLR, a Nikon D40x. Eight months later, the shutter stopped working properly; it wouldn't fully open, so my photos would come out oddly dark. My dad then let me borrow is Nikon D100, which I loved -- until a couple weeks ago, when it began to have shutter problems as well. It'd be cool if my family had more spare cameras lying around, but unfortunately that's not the case. Until I can afford a new DSLR, which will probably end up being a Canon after this mess, I purchased a new point-and-shoot that I'll be using in the meantime. It is a Panasonic LUMIX FH25, and so far, so good.

What I'm trying to get at is that this is the second post I used my new camera for, the first being my recent goal list. I took these the other day while catching up with lovely musician friend Dina. We live in the same apartment building, but don't see each other often enough! We walked to Corner Bakery and chatted over brunch, then made sangria and watched this movie. I'm slightly embarrassed to say that it was my first time. I'd always known the fashion side of the film, but no one ever told me how beautifully deep the story is...

  1. I have been using a point-and-shoot Sony for all of my photos and while I would love to have a nice DSLR, I'm too cheap and won't buy a new camera until this one dies. Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my all-time favorite movies. I watch it several times a year. Have you ever read the novella by Truman Capote? Extremely deep, quite sad with an extremely different ending.

    Also, your breakfast look delicious.

  2. I bought a used Canon DSLR last summer for only 300 dollars and it's still working great for my purpose. It was already 2 years old...I am looking into getting a better one though because it's hard to get good shots of food I just doesn't capture the colours and the detail as much as I'd like.

  3. Oh, I've been telling myself I need to see this movie! I think Audrey Hepburn is so naturally gorgeous and classy! So sorry about the cameras. I have been stuck for a long time with a non-professional one, and, I too, just got previously owned Canon from my husband's friend at work for $300. You should look on Ebay or a website like that to see if you can get a used one for cheap. -Jessica


  4. Sorry about your camera issues! That stinks!

  5. i have a panasonic lumix point-and-shoot as well, it's a great camera!
    and breakfast at tiffany's! i love that movie, but haven't seen it in such a long time. your post is making me want to watch it right now. like sierra said, the novella is amazing as well!
    xo, cheyenne

  6. I'm embarassed to admit I haven't seen it either. And that I have the same syndrome as you, but with vacuum cleaners. It's uncanny. The obvoius solution is just to not have any rugs to vacuum.

  7. OMG, your first time?!? I have to watch it once a month! lol!

    I have a Canon Rebel XSI that I loved. It has worked perfectly since 2009 although now that I have a Canon 5D I use it a bit less. Good luck picking out a new camera! =)

  8. omg! one of my favorite movies of all time!


  9. You have such a talent for making me hungry! I've been using a Canon PowerShot point and shoot for the past 2.5 years and it does its job just fine. Plus it's super compact! Someday I'll invest in a nice DSLR, but it's just not in the budget right now. And I've never seen this movie! Hard to believe when I think about it! XO

  10. I love Breakfast at Tiffany's! I watched it for the first time when I was about 15 and that's when I fell in love with Audrey Hepburn. Every time I watch it it brings tears to my eyes. And I'm also from Michigan. Recently when I visited Chicago I stopped by Tiffany's and had a complete Hepburn moment!


  11. Ahhh congrats on becoming part of the BAT club :) This has been one of my favourite movies since I was 5 (my mama has good taste haha).
    Just found your blog and am LOVING it!!
    Hugs from Oz!
