A Lament and A Photo Shoot

My camera died! Actually, it was on halloween night as we were headed out for the FINAL activity of the Halloween "season", and it made a bad noise and then died. I tried new batteries. I tried about everyhting I could think of I even took it to the camera store on Monday to see what they said. He declared a $200 repair. About what I paid for the camera in the first place.

I am so bummed. I LOVED this camera.

So now we're headed into the holidays and I don't see a new camera in my future. Or at least not one of the caliber I had. I suppose I can use my new employee discount to get a cheapo point and shoot for the holidays.

But I'm still really bummed. I probably had no business owning something that nice anyway so I guess it's a lesson for me.

But, to end on a happier note, I was looking through some old photos and found these ones that I took of Noah while we were at one of our many Halloween activities last month. The shadow one was his idea. I think it would have been a great pictures if the mommy shadow had not been WIDE.

I love this one the most.

Have a good weekend.

Oh no!! Canons must be sensitive to bumps and such - my point-and-shoot one died after just a very gentle drop that didn't even leave a mark. That stinks - I know how much you loved that camera.

I'm giving away a Kodak point-and-shoot on my review site - couldn't hurt to enter, you never know...
