I am distraught. Well, sort of. Definitely off kilter. Last night I went to a party out at the Sacramento River (accepting all invitations that come my way, remember…) and on my way down the hill from the taco truck I hit a very slippery patch of grass and fell down. No big deal, just a little banged up. When I got home I remembered to take the battery out of my camera and charge it, and when I put the new one in and turned on my camera to see if the second battery had taken a charge, the lens was sort of stuck and wouldn’t come out. I noticed the problem and adjusted it a little and it was fine. When I fell I had on a little backpack and the camera was in there, and it must have been jarred when I hit the ground. I was so relieved that it was okay.
About an hour ago I went out for a little photowalk, and when I stopped to take my first shot, discovered that the LCD screen is shattered! I’m so sad about that. This is not the time to buy a new camera, and I have this commitment to a photo a day. I think it still takes pictures, but I can’t see what I’m taking a picture of for anything. I hope I can get it fixed. If not, well. That will be sad indeed.
