Father’s Day shopping can be rough business. Especially if your pop has everything he already needs. Now, I know my Dad is much like myself. We don’t need materialistic things to complete our holiday. No, we just need a quality hug and “I love you”. BUT, I realize Father’s Day is just a little over a week away and some kids (not mine I’m sure) feel compelled to go beyond the hug. Yes, some of us feel obligated to dig deep into our hard earned cash to surprise our fathers with that special gift that says YOU are the world’s number one dad. So today’s blog is for you folks who find it necessary to go against our wishes and still shower us with gifts of appreciation.
So here’s my list. I mean “the” list of suggestions: A new iphone 3G (so I can take video of course), Epson R2880 (my r2400 is tired and old like me), Phase One 645 (Hasselblad would be asking WAY too much) or two hours with Scott Kelby (because this Photoshop thing gets confusing). If those suggestions are too much for your budget, here are a few others that might work as well. ABenro monopod, Gorilla pod, Streetwalker camera bag, Black Rapids double strap (for the commando photographer) and if all else fails a year subscription to any of my favorite photography magazines.
Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll do the right thing. We dads will love you no matter what. But the truth is, sometimes a tie stinks! I didn’t just say that. So babe, if your reading this, and you must buy a tie, you know dad looks great in black and green… 😉
