R.I.P


I can't believe that I am writing this on my blog...I snapped this pic early this morning during a downpour with my mom's camera. I wish that I could say that this is a pretty fall leaf that had fallen in a small pond and I just happen to catch it. But that is not the case. I woke up to realize that I had left my Nikon Digital SLR camera outside last night and forgotten to bring it in. This puddle is identical to the one that my camera was in when I found it this morning....drenched and waterlogged on my parents patio table. I don't have the words to describe how I felt at that moment...and that is rare that I am speechless. I have had it just over a year (my ten year anniversary gift...sorry honey) and it is my constant companion. It is ruined. For now, I will be using my mom's camera...and by the way, I am now taking donations for another one.... :)

Are you sure it is ruined? Maybe after it dries out it will work again. I once spilled coke into my keyboard and it wouldn't work at all, but the next day, it was fine again. Try it and let me know.

Enjoyed today, very much!

Bad news from you. Hope it will work again, cross my finger.

I once dropped a friend's camera in a stream, just after he'd said, "Whatever you do - don't drop it in there!" It seemed to have died, but after a night in the airing cupboard (linen closet?) it was right as rain.
