This spring something awful happened. I turned away for about a minute, and my cat decided to play with the strap of my camera hanging over a bar height table.
Yes, it did happen, and luckily it was just my old Nikon D50 that bit the dust. I had a new flash on it, and my 35mm 2.0 lens that survived. It broke off at the hot shoe, so the top of the camera was broken off. I decided not to get it fixed, since it was my first camera and was discontinued about 6 months after I purchased it. I figured it would cost more than it was worth.
I loved the color that came out of the camera, though.
It was my favorite camera to take along on trips since it was a lot lighter than my Nikon D300S.
I still have a bit of a love/hate relationship with that camera. It wasn’t the rockstar I was expecting for the price.
Now I tend not to bring my big camera with me everywhere since the weight hurts my shoulder from carrying it in my purse. I just don’t take as many pictures these days either. I need to get back on that. We took a recent trip to see friends we hadn’t seen in awhile and I barely took any pictures.
It’s sad really.
I think I need a new photo challenge. I will have to think on what I can actually get done in these busy days.
