"My Mile-High Purchase..."

This is the camera I purchased in sheer frustration
right after my most favorite, favorite camera
carreened off the top of our car
near Breckenridge, Colorado many moons ago.
Oh, My!
EDM #164 Draw a camera :)

Frustrating about losing the camera, I left my brand new camera on a wall in Provence. Ahhh! Though, this one looks pretty grand!

Oh! the Pain! I was robbed of my Nikon EM w/extra lenses, Nikon FE2 w/extra lenses, Nikon first fully auto a 2000s (?) w/extra lenses. They broke down the door and also got the Bass left hand guitar. Pain.
Wonderful drawing and Canon EOS.
I have a Nikon D40 digital w/extra lenses.
Will try and draw my long lost Kodak.

I lost my Pentax SLR camera several years ago on a camping trip. I've never quite gotten over it, so I feel for you The new one looks pretty cool, though. These are great drawings.

Thanks for your comments all...I can't believe the number of us who have had "horror stories" with our dear sweet cameras...guess I'm in good company. :~)

I love my 35mm Cannon but the cost of film and processing has gone over the moon..especially if you are a photo junkie like me. So right now I am on the hunt for a pocket sized mini digital with high enough pixels to be able to enlarge some shots but a low enough price tag that I can still buy my art stuff!

Can't forget the good old art stuff now can we? :)

Whoa! Bad luck with your old camera. This one looks easy to love, though.

Margaret Ann said...

How sad (but what a great drawing. I've never gotten over my most favorite little camera ever falling overboard when I was sailing and tried to reach for someone's $4.00 hat that had blown off.
