A Very Bad Day
It was a gloomy day Friday, and I thought twice about taking my camera with me on our morning walk, but scooped it up on my way out the door. Bad decision! As I picked it up, the strap somehow caught on the bottom of the carrier, tipping it upside down. Out came my precious camera and I watched in horror as it tumbled all the way down the basement stairs, to land on the cement floor at the bottom!
My horrified cries had my husband thinking I had fallen, which I would have preferred. It could have been worse. The camera still seems to be working okay, but the UV filter shattered and is jammed, so it cannot be removed.
Fortunately, the shop I bought the camera from has a Repair Guy, and he assured me he could cut the damaged filter off and clean and check everything over. The bad news is, it will take two weeks! 😦
Glad I kept my old camera as a backup, so I should be able to keep up the blog – if only the weather would cooperated and brighten up a bit!The sun did shine on Saturday and our trip to the camera store took us past a State Park we don’t get to visit very often, so we stopped to enjoy the view on our way home. By the time we go back to pick up the camera, the trees will have leafed out a bit, and this view will be even prettier.Came across these flowers blooming at the Nature Conservancy the other day. I believe they are Rue Anemone. The Marsh Marigolds and Violets will soon be in bloom, in spite of the unseasonably cold weather we have been having for the past week.
