OMG! My camera took a dump! Lots of pics..

bethnorcal9July 10, 2010

Well... it happened again. My dang camera went black. The lens is no good any more. I managed to get a handful of pics the other day before it died tho. Spent all last night trying to figure out what camera to buy. Then today I found what I hope is going to be a good one. It's a Sony DSC-HX1. Should arrive by next Friday. I sure wasn't expecting to have to put out a bunch of money now. But I have to have a camera!! I'm going thru photo-taking withdrawals!!! Acckkkk!!

So... anyway, here are a few pics from the last couple of days before the poor thing died. Kind of a tribute to a camera that really did its job well for 6yrs, despite the over-use!

ABRACADABRA

ANNA

BAJAZZO

CALLIOPE

EXCITING

GEBREUDER GRIMM

GINGER SYLLABUB CL

ICE CREAM

IVORY GRAND

MAJORA

MESSAGE

MILVA

NANCY REAGAN

OLD PORT

RADIO TIMES

ROSETTE DELIZY

SHREVEPORT

TEQUILA SUNRISE

Wow! In looking over these online, I see they're pretty dark. Maybe it's a good thing I'm getting a new camera! I think the picture quality has been going downhill for awhile. So I guess it's maybe a blessing in disguise! LOL

Your pictures look just fine on my end. I am not sure what you are seeing, but everything looks relatively normal. Of the ones you posted, I also have Gebruder Grimm, Ice Cream/Memoire, Ivory Grand, and Old Port. I like to look at Exciting because I am curious about it. I used to have Tequila Sunrise at my other house, but I found it to be a real blackspot magnet. Thanks, as always, for posting.

Love the "lashes" on radio times, and tequila sunrise is spectacular.
Some "new" blooms for me too. I know the foto withdrawal symptoms too, when I forgot my camera in the car.
Keep 'em coming...

Ginger Syllabub is such a romantic rose.
I hope your new camera is easier to learn how to use than mine.

I love your Old Port!!!! and Radio Times!!! I've never seen Radio Times like that (I've never seen one in person). I didn't know that it opened so far. Still lovely though.

I'll be interested to see how your new Sony captures colors.

Several here I'd love to have. Drool, drool, drool.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM. Never heard of it before, but with a name like that on a hot summers day, you gotta love it. Shreveport is a nice color and I like how her blooms open. Glad I stopped in.
