I was playing around with my camera shooting Trevor in the early afternoon sunlight when he mentioned that the chain had come off of his electric scooter and wedged in the wheel earlier during the day.
So we walked into the garage so I could fix his ride. I set my camera onto of the large trash can and got to work. A minute later, the thing fell off of the can, plummeting 3 feet to the concrete floor. No one was even near it. Seeing it on the ground made me feel sick.
It did turn back on, the lens isn't damaged but the body did crack at the hot shoe and built in flash.
So it is off to Nikon for repair for a few weeks and I am left cameraless in the mean time :( :( :( I had definite plans for some specific shoots in the next few weeks plus class is starting back soon. Ugh! Sick sick sick.
I have a point and shoot, but what fun is that? Last shot in the Nikon was this one. I was trying to get him to turn his head a little more to his left to get short side lighting.
Alexis, the most excellent wife that she is, tried to make me feel better by saying, "Maybe we should just get you a new camera body."
Anyone got a D-200 for sale?
