The One Thing

What is the one thing you cannot live without? What is your most prized possession? Think about it. It could be anything really.

My "one thing" is my digital camera. David gave it to me last Christmas and, being a camera snob, it took me months to get used the idea of actually using a digital camera. Once I tried it I was hooked! I love to take pictures to share, but also to document the different events enjoyed and milestones reached by our family.

So, once I decided that my one thing was my camera, and dared to say it out loud, the camera went belly up! Can cameras do that?! Yup, if it had legs they'd be as stiff as a board. Not only did it totally die on us, it has left me without any easy means of documenting our holidays. It's amazing how soon we forget about focusing and judging the light. Having a point-and-shoot really has taken the art out of my picture taking.

I guess I'll go dig out my dad's old backbreaking 35mm Nikon* and go back to paying for developing. Yikes.

*That camera has a history - it's been to Cancun, been carried to the top of Chichen Itza and taken some National Geographic quality photos. Unfortunately those photos have never be seen since there was no film in the body at the time! Priceless.
