My oldest is getting close to the dreaded teenager stage. Not quite happy with being photographed anymore, but now and then I get him to agree to my taking shots while he ‘does his thing’. He loves climbing anything: trees, playground equipment,… I often get him from below.
He is a real bookworm, so the glasses truly suit him. Only problem when taking photos is that they go dark. I decided today to try my faster lens and shoot indoors. The lens kept giving problems, not focussing, then stopped working all together. When I checked it to see what was wrong, I realised the lens had separated completely from the electronics… It must have been from when I got knocked hard while in a store a little while ago. A guy walked hard into me, knocking the bag off my shoulder. I suspected I lost something when the bag hit the floor with that resounding clank, but the lens still seemed to be in one piece. Apparently I was mistaken. Now to get hold of a husband on the other side of the world, who forgot to pack his cell phone charger!
