My camera is dead :(
My beloved camera, Blackie, has died! After serving me faithfully for 5 years, he went kaput last week Saturday.... booo! I loved him so; he was my very first camera, and he traveled with me to such places as China, San Diego and Washington DC. He endured a lot of jostling, bumps and scrapes, rain and sand. He accompanied me to archives and museums to document sources and material culture! He was there for the beginning of berrysprite, and we learned photography tricks together. In fact, he was the reason I was able to start my berrysprite shop and a huge part of the reason berrysprite has been so successful... his macro capabilities were positively delicious. All of that color and vibrancy that highlight berrysprite goodness were all his doing... he made my amigurumi look cute; Suffice it to say he will be sorely missed. And now it is only fitting that I post an homage to my dearly departed friend and all of his glorious work over the years! Rest in peace dear camera.
