In Mourning

My brand new camera (the one that Oldest dropped a few posts back) finally completely gave up the ghost this week.  So it is in loving memory that I dedicate this post to the cameras I've loved and lost with a pictorial tribute from photos past.

I'm so sorry about your camera! Back before digital cameras, we went on a picnic and I had my 35mm setting on the table next to me. I had the lens off and my back was turned while I dug in my camera bag for the telephoto lens. My then 10 year old son popped the top on a can of soda and showered a fine spray of the sweet syrupy drink on the naked face of my camera ...ugh!

Not his fault. I should not have had the camera on the table amidst all of that food. It was a disaster waiting to happen. I cleaned it out as best I could and tried to use it. But the ultra-fine mist of sweetness had taken its toll. No money to repair or replace the camera at that time so we made do for a few years with disposables. Such is life!

I left a comment on your Homemade Noodles post a while back that it reminded of a post I wanted to make. I finally posted it this morning. Here's the link:

Have a great day!
