Near Death

I woke up to this ordinary morning...

And I looked to the sky...

Where the sky screamed agony and misery....

And my camera started to show signs of dying.

There was this incident at the second week after the purchase of the camera that it was accidentally dropped from the shoulder height to the cold hard floor DIRECTLY. The power was on, and the lens was fully extended...
OUUUUCCCCCCHHHHH was an understatement..

No it was not me, I would never did such a thing to my precious...

I was amazed that it was still alive, and functioned like nothing happened to it...

Until now, 10 freaking months later... I think the camera has done its best in doing his job, and miraculously stayed alive. Do not ask me why he is a he, because he just is.

No, it is not dead yet. 2 or 3 out of 10 pictures turn out completely WHITE, or jagged with horizontal lines. This will definitely cause plenty of problems shooting pictures in any occasion.

I think, it is time again to hunt for a new, and undoubtedly, more capable camera.

Maybe... this time...


Dslr.... ???
