jumping lenses?


You will have to excuse my pictures for a while, as my favorite lens decided to jump off the highest shelf in the TV cabinet in my bedroom. It was the middle of the night, and there was a big thud that woke me up, and it was my very stylish, but still padded camera case, that was on the shelf, but was now on the floor. How does that happen? It was the middle of the night, no one was moving, just the earth rotating the sun as usual, and splat goes my beautiful Nikon 18-135 loveliness, and now she is scrambled eggs inside, rattling like the pit full of snakes in that Indiana Jones movie. Tragic I tell you, eye leaking tragedy, and now my pics are, well, not very good, because I have to use my long lens for everything, and well, I don't know, it just doesn't work like my scrambled friend did.


So any way, here's what I did with some plates....whatever!

I feel your pain on the lens. I had a similar event take place and no one would believe me. Praise God for warranties. I love the plates..I am trying to collect enough fun bright and whimsy ones to place on our hall wall that can be seen from the playroom.

Sorry about your lens, it's a gut wrenching feeling. I was once walking with my camera, the hubs had just used the carpet cleaner in the living room and my foot hit the hardwood floor in the dining room. Down we both went and as soon as it hit my stomach dropped to my toes.

Hopefully she's back up and unscrambled soon.
