Quite often, I include pictures along with whatever I’m blogging about, but that’s going to have to pause for a while, because The Camera is going into the shop. It’s 4 years old, and I’ve shot hundreds of rolls of film with it, so I suppose it’s about time for a tuneup.
But I’ll miss it while it’s away.
I realized, this morning, when I’d finished speaking with the factory repair people, that I love this camera. It’s strange, to love a thing. I don’t know that I’ve had the experience before, except, perhaps, for my violin, and that’s kind of … different.
The camera provides me with a challenge, in that it’s got many more options than I’ve ever used, and can somehow keep on giving me new things to know, each and every time I paw through the manual. And, yes, I still have the manual … and the original sales receipt.
So, today it’s going in the post, and I’ll be relying on the … digital camera. Sigh.
