For those of you following me on twitter, you may have seen during the last week (Aug 30) when I tweeted the following:
My camera died... well it didn't exactly die, but it won't take pictures anymore! Sad day.
followed by :
I can't say that my camera dying is totally unexpected... the button popped off in July and I've been
using a bobby pin to snap pictures!
It's true, my camera died... it's also true that the button popped off on July 4th (when we went birdwatching.) Also true that I have been using a bobby pin to actually take the pictures with since then. It actually died on me in the beginning of me taking pictures for the recipe I was making that day... Isn't that just my luck. It could have died AFTER I was finished!
I actually really love my camera! The poor thing has taken about 20,000 pictures (no lie). It has given me pictures like (never fear, I'm not even sharing 0.1% of the photos that have been taken - okay I'm close to 0.1% but that is only 20 after all!):
(One of the first pictures taken with the camera - we got it as a College Graduation present.)
Pictures of birds, small
Pictures of flowers...
Hubby would take lots of pictures of flowers when we were in college - it was his way of giving me flowers we couldn't afford.
For celebrations... Welcoming our son,
celebrating his first birthday,
Celebrating my grandfather's (paternal) 90th birthday
It's been with us at more somber occasions (I know this picture doesn't really show somber) such as my Grandmother's (maternal) funeral, and just over a year later - my grandfathers (he's hiding behind the plant).
very first post. Taken pictures of all the food I've made in the past two years!
This weekend I'm going to be buying a new camera (just a simple point and shoot variety... if we weren't in the process of buying a house I'd be getting a SLR!)
For now I just want to tell my camera thanks - thanks for all the memories you helped capture in the past 4 years! I also just have to ask you one question: Couldn't you have died 4 months earlier when our extended warranty was still in effect!
