Do you make New Year's resolutions?
I don't. I mean, if I did, I'd probably break it/them in no time flat. (Like that diet that's going to work and have me in size 8 jeans. Mwa-ha-ha!)
But this year I'm honestly going to try to do one thing: take more pictures.
Canon EOS camera. I was heartbroken. Mind you, I've owned SLR cameras for most of my life and have NEVER dropped one ... until October. And I dropped it on a ceramic floor. I could have handed the camera off to Mr. L at the same time I handed off my laptop computer (we were traveling), but no--I took my camera with me and seconds later dropped it. I heard what sounded like glass shatter. I tried taking pictures and was surprised that the camera still takes good picture. But the zoom and viewfinder no longer work. That makes it rather difficult to take a good picture--or rather size up a good shot.
The next day I took the camera to the shop where I bought it, but they said it would cost the same as getting a new camera body. : (
Now that the holidays are over, I worry about indulging in a new camera when there are other bills to pay, but the thought of being without a camera for two months has been unbearable. I'm going to replace it. And when I do, I'm going to take more pictures and hope to share them with readers on my Facebook pages. (Don't be surprised if they're mostly of my cats.)
