Camera Porn

Of course, I knew this sort of thing went on. And don't get me wrong, I'm no prude, and would be the first to admit that a well-designed camera has a certain visual appeal.

But when you use Flickr to investigate the kind of photos you might be able to take with the camera you're thinking of bidding for on eBay, you get overwhelmed by it.

It's not far short of tragic. Maybe it's even a metaphor for the circularity of postmodern life. Or something.
