I’ve been trying to take pictures of the Canadian Honkers across the field (from my house) for the last week or so. These beautiful birds land there every fall. The photos I initially took turned out blurry, and I wasn’t sure if I’d ever get a clear shot. Last night they were closer than usual. I went into my neighbors field, and underneath the barbed wire fence to take a few photos. I was so happy with the way they turned out, clear as can be, with purple and orange sky behind them.
I didn’t give my camera another thought until tonight when my mom was cutting the most beautiful bouquets for a local shop, where she occasionally sells her mixed floral bouquets. I looked in the normal spot for my trusty powershot but it wasn’t there. We all searched high and low, while grandma panicked and repeatedly wanted to know what we were up to. I gave up as it was time to take the flowers figuring I’d find it when we got back.
About ten minutes ago I thought to go outside and try to retrace my steps once again. I remembered that I had set a magazine on one of the chairs which had a few things that I was planning on showcasing on my blog next week. A mean and evil light bulb went off when I decided to check if I had set my camera on top of it. Low and behold I found both! Completely soaked. The camera will not even turn on. Where did all this rain come from? We weren’t expecting anything until the weekend!!!
I read The Secret and the authors tell you to think positive and not worry about things that could happen. This my friends is why I would worry on a daily basis, to make sure things like this never happen. I never fathomed my camera frying in a rain filled thunderstorm!
Whelp, this means I have to get a new camera. To those of you who know about my existing etsy shop, please tell your friends, family, coworkers, etc!!!! 🙂
Any tips on what my next camera should be?
Needless to say, I will be postponing the opening of my shop until I can take photos of my new merchandise.
