    if you could be granted 4 wishes

    hi guys this is just a fantasy post and a bit of fun. and i have changed it to 4 wishes sorry

    if you had a genie and he could grant you 4 wishes ( photography related ) how would you answer

    wish 1 = you could have any camera you wanted . money no object
    wish 2 = any 2 lenses .money no object
    wish 3 = any location ,country
    wish 4 = any subject to photograph=human ,animal, building etc .past or present

    think really hard about wish 4 .
    remember this is a once in a lifetime offer .
    ps if you pick someone really famous they can be photographed in the country of your choice.

    im looking forward to some well thought out,or crazy replies.
    have fun.glenn

    im off out with my dog for a couple of hours ,cant wait to see some of the replies when i get back

    Cracks fingers, gurns, pours another cup of coffee.......right then.

    1. Hasselblad H4D-60......I've used a H3D-31 and the memory of those files just won't leave me. I need that level of detail in my life - I do - honest - I'd be a more complete human being.

    2. HCD 4/28 and HC3.5-4.5/50-110......though if money was no object I'd want a few more H System lenses.

    3. Machu Picchu......Can't think of a place I want to visit more.

    4. Olivia Wilde.....always the chance she'll fall head over heels in love with me and we can elope together.

    re: if you could be granted 4 wishes

    1. Canon 1D mark 4
    2. 500mm f4 mark 2 + 70-300mm F4-5.6 L (covers the range I want to shoot)
    3. Antarctica
    4. A dragon (this is a wish list after all)

    I am thinking that I would also need an invisibility cloak to photograph a dragon and live to tell the tale.

    (1) 5000 to walk into the camera shop with and spend the lot.
    (2) 5000 to travel around the world taking photos.
    (3) 5000 to buy photography related items and give them away to CinC members with more than 50 posts.
    (4) 10 for a plate of fish & chips along with a beer and a chair because by the time I'd done all above i'd need a sit down

    re: if you could be granted 4 wishes

    1. I am pretty happy with my 7D... Although I wouldn't mind if someone wanted to upgrade my 40D to a second 7D for me. But, I'm happy enough with the 40D not to spend the money to upgrade...
    2. I am quite satisfied with my 17-55mm f/2.8 IS and 70-200mm f/4L IS combination. Best darn lens combination that I ever used!
    3. Istanbul or back to China...
    4. Sophia Loren in her prime (and me in my prime). Heck, I'd be quite happy just to be back in my prime, never mind about Sophia!

    Not on the wish list 1-4, but the ability to realise any vision I have. So many ideas, and not enough talent .
    Wish list 1-4, anything required to help fulfill said vision.
