My much used (abused) camera died at the weekend. May it rest in peace! It has served me well for many years, fondly called “The Ark” as it was so big and clunky compared to the new cameras. I had to bite the bullet and buy a new camera yesterday. A pleasant surprise was in store for me as prices have dropped hugely over the past few years and I was able to buy a much better camera for about one fifth of the amount I paid for my first digital camera. I have to “Start it up” as “The Rolling Stones” say and practice a bit to begin taking even better photos for my blog. This camera has a better zoom capacity and takes sharper pictures so keep watching this space.
