You Asked...

I posted a lovely spring picture in my post yesterday and I had a few comments that inquired if I took that picture myself. I have to admit that I did not. I wish I was that good at photography. I try. The picture from yesterday is one of the many photos I have in my clip art that came with my Publisher program. So how can you tell for sure if a picture is mine or not? I tag mine with 'Lakewood' right on the picture.

And did you know that I use a camera that is broken? My fault...I broke it. I was at the top of the basement stairs and dropped it. Dropped my camera. Then as if in slow motion, I watched it bounce on the carpeted steps over and over again until it hit the concrete basement floor. Hard.

In horror, I watched it come to life all on its own. It started making noises, the flash was going on and off, and the lens was going in and out as if I was zooming in on an object. After it calmed down, I thought for sure my camera would never work again.

But aside from a cracked LCD screen, my little EasyShare appeared to survive the accident.

Now it does become a little temperamental at times, sometimes a little cranky, and is a bit slower here and there...kind of like me. We understand each other perfectly.

You had to ask...

Well, I relate the camera to old age - a little used and broken up - but still out there cranking!

I have a camera like that....I have dropped 4 digital cameras over the years - 3 died instantly, but this last one is hanging in there!

I can't tell you how many times I've dropped my camera, and I always think that this time it's a goner, but thankfully it comes back to life every time!
Well, the photos that YOU took are just as lovely as the one you shared yesterday!

Thank you for leaving such an awesome comment regarding the post I wrote for blog newbies. You were certainly one to back up the idea of thinking of a title that will follow you until death ;)

Hey friend....thanks for stopping by. You asked about my mirror. I think it is old piece. I believe it was the top to an old vanity/dresser, but I could be wrong.
