miss 14 forgot to charge her camera battery, so asked if she could take my point-and-shoot to school
before she had her own camera, it wasn't unusual for the kids to borrow mine and nothing untoward ever happened.
i bought my lumix in hong kong 3 years ago and it's travelled the word and taken THOUSANDS of great photos
on this day an accident befell my camera at school
if you look closely you can see that the front of the lens is bent slightly downwards, so it couldn't close (or open)
my poor baby was so upset at breaking my camera that she took it to the local tech shop after school to see if she could get it fixed
they wanted to charge her $55 to take a look at it and told her it would probably cost $200 for a new lens
(the whole camera brand new was around $400 3 years ago!)
when she got home she fell apart and confessed in a flood of tears :(
i really appreciated her honesty and she was clearly distraught, and (the truth!) i had just the WEEKEND BEFORE said to mr scrappy that i thought it was time to upgrade
my husband (THE ENGINEER), said
"let me just take it apart [to see if i can fix it]"
PS: thank heavens for the upcoming queen' birthday sales!
