Yesterday, Jeff and I were going to take a drive, so we got up early and thought we'd go to JB's and have breakfast (with our Braquel, of course). We also thought we'd take our snow shoes that we got last year, but have never used yet. So, we packed our snow clothes and were getting ready to leave, when I grabbed my camera bag of the counter in the utility...and had a terrible accident. When I put my camera in the bag a couple days ago, I didn't zip it up, and when I grabbed it, the camera fell out onto the tile floor. Crash...my heart stopped.
When I picked it up, the lens was broken, and so was my heart. I started crying immediately. I had saved for several years to buy a new camera, and now I'm holding it and the lens' is all cracked, dented, ruined. I couldn't quit crying. Even now, as I'm writing this I'm crying again.
We went ahead and left, Jeff fed the horses, and then asked if I was still crying. Of course I was! He asked if I had a filter on the lens, and I said yes. He told me he thought it was just the filter that broke, so we came back in the house and ...maybe...we can't get it to come off because it's dented. But I took a photo, and I could see it on the screen okay. I just don't know yet, whether it will be okay or not.
I remember that Robin said when she dropped hers, it ruined the camera. So, I'm not sure. I guess I'll take it to Idaho Camera and see if they can check it out. Maybe get the filter off and see if the lens' is ruined or can be saved. Or if the camera body is even any good now. I'm just heart sick!
