Confession.

It's okay to be really incredibly sad if your camera breaks, right? Especially when you've had it for a few amazing picture-filled years in a row and bonded with it like it's some kinda best friend and seen half the wide world through its viewfinder? Because I am. Beyond belief even. I thought this was a long day before for other reasons ... now I get to seal this Monday with a nosedive into the blues. Guess it's back to taking pictures with my mind again.

Sigh.

That is sad because you take such amazing pictures. There have been several that I think would be fun to paint. I had me favorite camera stolen out of my studio....... and they don't even make that kind any more. I feel your sadness. Christmas is coming..... I say you start dropping hints now and until then utilize those professional photographers I know you have access to........ smiles, em

I am so sorry. I feel your pain. I just lost my beloved digital camera about two months ago and I kind of felt lost without it. I just got a new one, but I haven't quite bonded with it yet.

Honestly, in my estimation, there are very few things more depressing than that. . . I'm so sorry. Maybe you need to hit up Costco for a new camera while you're getting your new hard drive.

While taking pictures with your mind, it helps to blink your eyes really hard, knod your head dramatically and make a little noise.

i think we all cry with you - but luckily your words are a bit photographic. i vote you don't buy a new one - i think you'll be winning one at the work party in a couple months. and in the mean time you'll just have to be wordier. in a good way.

Sad! I don't know who could be more sad, you or me! I love your pics. What happened to it? I think we should all set up a fund for Dainon's new camera. What do you say?

Dainon. said...

Ha. That's nice of you, sis, but I think I'll be alright.

You could take pictures with your mind and be really sad.
Orrrrr.....you could go buy a new camera.

Someday I prolly will. Times is tight for the time being. It seems like that accident from last week is not going to be cheap.

Sorry you had an all-around bad day yesterday and I know that you loved and knew your camera inside and out, from the amazing photos you shot. I'm sad for you. I have a nice SRL camera you could use or buy if you wanna, but it's not digital, so I kinda doubt you would. Sorry again. . .

Sherpa said...

Oh! I'm sorry for you too. I loved the pictures you took with it also.
