Back in March of 2006, the camera that I had at the time stopped working. Photography is something I so enjoy, and I had to go get a new camera! My boyfriend at the time, who is now my husband, helped me purchase a brand new Nikon D50. Though the model has been discontinued and many better have been released, I have used that camera ever since. I learned a lot with my camera friend. Yesterday I took it out to go on a photo excursion and it was broken. I was able to snap one photo of my son before the mirror froze and the shutter stopped working.
While it is repairable, because it is so old, its repair costs are more than it is worth. But man, I love that camera. I did a check and discovered that it lasted through just over 28,800 shutter actuations. So many wonderful memories captured with it. I immediately went on eBay and purchased a used one of the same model to get me through until I can afford to buy an upgrade.
Today's photo was the last salvageable photo I took with it. (No, I did not drop it in the water or get it wet. I took this a few days ago.) This is an urban waterfall/fish ladder on Johnson Creek behind my husbands parents home in Portland.
Needless to say, until my replacement camera arrives, I have a dilemma. I may just not post, or I may post old stuff. Should only be a few days either way :)
