let's have a party



because hey, I got a new camera. unfortunately, now the old camera looks at me accusingly, like I have performed the ultimate betrayal. okay yes, I do feel a little guilty. I had to put her in the back of the closet because I couldn't take the way she was looking at me, all hurt and sad-like. funny thing is, I've had the new camera for over a month now. so perfect and pretty and with that new camera smell too. I wasn't able to do anything more than occasionally take her out of the box. but only to feel the weight of her in my hands, to look through the lens to see what I could see. I think maybe I was a little scared of her and her fancy ways. I finally confessed my secret to hannah because she pines for pretty new cameras just like I do. she understands. hannah, I finally broke through to the other side. it's nice over here, just like you said it would be. the stripey leg shot is next, I promise. hey, let's have a little bake sale and buy you a pretty new camera too.

  1. My wife has a Nikon D-50... a nice camera, but they're prone to this weird error "CHA" which can mean your memory card reader spontaneously went belly-up. We had a hell of a time getting hers fixed, even under warranty-- but after three tries, they got it right. BE SURE you get the warranty. A quick search for "CHA" and "NIKON" will net you a ton of users fuming about this...

  11. cameras I have known and loved...

    I take my time with new cameras, too. don't know why. when I see my husband hanging off wet rocks to get a great shot or some such thing, I realize that I'd better learn how to use it before we're on to another one

    actually- we've never broken any in the line of duty, but have had two stolen

  15. My old Canon AE1 has been so
    neglected but funny timing with
    your post ~ I just took it out and
    dusted it off and bought it a new
    roll of Fuji Reala and it is
    beaming everywhere now:)

    Cute shot and delightful post:)
