Back In Business

My camera took another hit a few weeks ago due to an accident but now it is better.  You may remember a few years ago that this same camera accidentally fell into a creek high in the Sierras and took some time to heal after Canon said it was totaled. This time I spilled a soft drink on the camera which was sitting on my vehicle’s passenger seat but I quickly dried it off,  but some damage was done. It was a coke(No more cokes) and they contain a lot of syrup which got into some of the dials and switches on the camera.  After a few days, I couldn’t move a few. I gambled with some WD-40 and after a few weeks of drying out, the camera is in fine running order. For my next camera, I will purchase accidental damage insurance which is available.   So I took some photos out in my backyard of Zion National Park which turned out just fine!

  10. Great shots and great camera. Just don’t let it know that it’s more the photographer than the camera. It just may not play dead the next time.
