I'm gonna keep the little guy just because a) I'm too lazy to take it to a toxic waste recycling facility at the moment, b) we had a good 5 years together, and c) it takes some awesome psychadelic pics, like these:
I have no idea what this is a picture of. A stack of papers, I think?
Another shot of the same thing after turning the camera on/off:
I tried the camera again today, since usually things go back to normal after a while. As you can see in the picture directly above, there's something rotten in the state of Denmark. You can't even tell what this is a picture of (it's supposed to be my desk).
This shot of the living room lamp (on a table) is sorta neat, along with the blinds as a backdrop:
With any death, we also celebrate the life that was. I got my Canon PowerShot A60 camera 5 year ago for around $140, including shipping. For a budget camera, it did a lot of stuff and took great pictures. There were plenty of functions with which I could develop more advanced photography skills. Once I learned to use the manual settings on my camera, I never went back to point and shoot again.
When I opened shop, I wanted to do more than snap pictures of my products. I wanted the pics to be artwork in of themselves. As an elegy to cheap cameras, I present to you some of my favorite pics taken with the recently departed (that is, when it worked as it should):
Fortunately, there is a happy ending. Talk about the cavalry to the rescue--my dear friends got me a new Canon Powershot as a graduation present! I absolutely love it to bits, especially the manual focus function, and I'm so grateful that I have such great friends.
