I Am a Camera...
(click photos to enlarge)
...and my camera is broken. My Canon PowerShot is broken AGAIN! It is not even two years old and this is the second time that the lense has gotten stuck out in the extended position. On Saint Patrick's Day I was at the Irish pub taking some jolly pictures of the bagpipers when the lense got stuck out and wouldn't retract. A year ago when the same thing happened Canon fixed it at no cost. This year they said the warranty was over and they would charge me to fix it. I sent it in with a letter asking them not to charge me since it is not even two years old and this is the second time it has broken. We'll see what they say.
In the meantime I'm missing the digital camera, it's become like an extension of my right hand. I was at the Farmer's Market today and saw the most beautiful pink tulips in full bloom, but couldn't get a picture of it.
For now, let's go to the Bart Boehlert Archives for some comfort. Above is a photo of yellow roses which cheered the living room during the recent four-day rain. Below are pink roses which we got for one of the snow storm weekends.
And a single white tulip bows in the spot light.
Let's see what happens with the camera. I might have to buy a new one. But one doesn't want to buy a new digital every two years, does one?
