So I busted the camera...again.
I swear that camera and I have a very unhealthy relationship.
This is the 'fall into the lake' camera of,
lets see now,
6 years ago.
It was brand new then.
It was less than 300 dollars.
I've gotten my 50 dollars a years worth.
I want to break up with it.
The other day the lens just jumped from the base onto the kitchen floor. (while I was holding it ) and a ring that can be replaced broke.
Fireman thinks I dream up ways to drop the camera.
Now, I consider myself very creative but not one to waste time on the demise of a camera.
The first thing he did when he retired was find a way to make that camera work.
I'm grateful, I am .
But I just can't have nice things.
It is too painful when they break.
And they all break.
My mantra to my family as they grew was,
'There it goes.'
This is not the Smashing Pumpkins reference.
I don't know if any of my readers even know Smashing Pumpkins...but to be clear....
every THING goes at some point.
Better not to attach too much importance to a THING.
Remember my 49 dollar clearance camera from Target that took nice photos and lasted several years?
It just died this year. It died due to a door problem that would cost more than my initial purchase price.
My iPhone camera is adequate.
If I were to, say, run into a camera with the brand FUJI , on it
I may be tempted.
Fuji's think the way I want to shoot.
We get along.
For now Nikon DX, I consider you history.
IF Fireman wants to take all the family photos and memories for the next ten years, he can use you.
Because You and I are done.
Does Tupperware make a camera?
