Let me lay it out for you...
...and you will see quite clearly what it was that I saw at that moment. How was it that my beloved camera lay in a thousand pieces in the bottom of a bag? It took me a moment to figure it all out.
I had it from good sources that there was something 'picture worthy' happening over at the farm...come with the camera. And so I did...only to discover I was too late...and the photo op was over. So I took my camera...and the John Deere lawn mower...and drove back to our place with intentions of mowing the lawn. On arriving at our yard...I laid the camera on the tractor seat...unhooked the trailer and fastened the blower bags. The tractor was idling....and actually rolled ahead several feet during this time. I didn't realize the camera had jiggled off...and the tractor rolled right over it. In fact...I totally forgot about the camera...jumped on the seat and turned on the mower. There was an awful racket...like that of a Canon being shot into the blower bag...in a thousand pieces. I shut everything down...having no idea what just happened.
And then...the awful moment of truth!
Here is a question that I am now pondering. 'How much is too much to spend on a hobby?' This blogging is getting a little costly! The quality of photos you see on 'My Front Porch' may just deteriorate over the next while...as I will be using my spare Canon...while I save up my shekels to replace the one I have been forced to part with. Bloggers are quite attached to their cameras...so parting does not come easy! Sigh. I'm wondering if Canon might just want to sponsor my hobby...as I am a very loyal customer of theirs...and advertise quite freely on their behalf. Now that's a thought!
Have yourselves a wonderful Labour Day...I'm off to the races. Really!
