A couple of years ago for my birthday my darling husband bought me a new digital camera. It was a nice little toy. Took great pictures, had image stabilization, a burst option and kept me happy. I was very sad when it met its demise this week. It was in my purse, as I take it nearly everywhere, and my purse fell off of the trunk of the car and out came the camera, tumbling across the street, never to power up again. It was my careless fault and I am so sad about it. I seem to not be able to hang on to the point and shoot type of cameras very well.
My 35mm Minolta on the other hand has lasted a long time and is in great condition. I use that camera for photo shoots and other times I want to take the time to really set up a shot. So, what to do now? Get another little fairly cheap point and shoot, take with me every where camera, or the camera of my dreams? A DSLR that cost more than I make in 2 months time? Nice and professional grade, I will use and use it. I can't afford it though. I guess after we finish the septic, we will see if anything is left over. In the meantime, don't look for any new pics. I will have to recycle and re purpose the old ones.
