About Me

My photo
Thank you for visting my blog. When I started this blog, it was just the vehicle for which I had hoped to share photos of our life in Chicagoland with our loved ones, but it has turned into so much more for me. Life is ever evolving in our household and time no longer stands still. Every moment is precious and worthy of being captured and treasured. In addition, through my love of the camera, I have had the opportunity to meet and also capture moments in others' lives. It is my hope, with this blog, that when my memory fails me, the words and photos on this blog will remind of where we were. History...Through My Glass...

dropped

I took it off of my neck to get Roan down from the loading dock of the local liquor store (see pictures). I was drawn to the blue door and tonight was a perfect night and weather for pictures. As I was still holding Roan, I reached for my camera and had a good hold of it, but the strap got caught on the wood and it went flying onto the pavement.



I felt my heart drop as the glass shattered everywhere. The battery cover went flying. It seems that the camera is still working. I was able to get battery cover to go back in, but it's not the same. Also, the UV filter is broken, but the worse thing is that my 50mm 1.4 is pretty much dead. I can still kind of use it, but I don't know how much longer it will last. I might have to get another. :(



So I think these are the last pictures for awhile. I forgot that my ISO was set at 800 again so they are a bit noisey.

I thought the loading door was such a unique color...especially for a liqour store. At first he thought it was pretty cool to be up there.


Then he realized that he couldn't go anywhere and started to get worried...

He started screaming, "Help!"


I told him that I would help him so he started looking at traffic and was saying, "Cars..."

I love these pictures of Ro Ro. He's adorable. I love how he smiles with his entire body. He's such a little boy...so sweet, so innocent.

I'm sorry to hear about your camera. Hopefully it won't be too costly to replace what you could not salvage.

Kaosong...gosh, how terrible! I hope at least the camera is still ok. Too bad about the lens. =( The things we'd do for a shot.

That door is so unique and like you said for a liquor store!
