I'm Pissed

At myself.

What did I do?  I made the same mistake TWICE.

While taking our family picture yesterday, I set the camera on the bar stool, pushed the timer and ran to pose.

A gust of wind, well, gusted, and pushed my camera over to smash on the very hard cement sidewalk.

The camera got a few scratches and lost it's plastic lens protector (Forgive the non-photographic vocabulary, I just like to take pictures and don't really know what I'm doing most of the time.)

Me?  Well, stupid me, I just set the camera right back on the stool again.  They were just cosmetic damages right?



This time a piece fell off the front and the zoom thing got stuck in a crooked fashion.

I cried.

Then Tim shoved the zoomer back in.

A miracle!  It works!  At least for now.

I know the feeling... once after a shoot I forgot to latch my camera bag and as I was walking from the car to our apt, it came tumbling out of the bag onto the sidewalk. I could have thrown up right then and there, I was so sick over it. Still works just fine... just has some "love marks" on the body and lens.

Hope it'll still work for you guys... I love the daily photos.

The camera still works 2 days later! I'm sure your camera was a lot more involved than mine but it still hurt my inner being. I mean, if I don't have a camera, how am I going to record the next flood that Jack causes?
