It’s Back! (A Resurrection.)

Faithful visitors will remember a post last fall, “They’re Both Dead, I’m Sorry…”

My “big” telephoto-strong point and shoot went to the shop soon afterwards. For some reason I’d bought an insurance policy on it, and darned if they didn’t cover the repairs! The other camera, my G12 Canon, had not been insured, and it took a while to decide whether fixing it was worth the effort. The answer was YES, and I found a shop that would do the work for a reasonable fee,

That favorite little camera came back from the shop last week.

It’s mighty nice to have it back.

A new dawn!

There’s nothing like the familiarity of handling a well-used tool, whether it’s a brush or a saw or a camera. This G12’s shutter had been activated tens of thousands of times. Now more activations are ahead. Here are a few pics from the “returnee”.

Since it’s mid-winter, our amaryllis are starting to bloom.

Even the bubbles in the sink have their charms.

On a beach walk, I found a sign so weathered that only the plywood substrate remained.

PRIVATE PROPERTY PERSONS USING THIS BEACH DO SO AT THEIR OWN RISK. (Or something very close to that.)

At water’s edge near the sign, a foraging gull paused to stretch a wing.

On a walk out the road, Jackson the Dog and Phyllis’s marble-eyed cat had an encounter.

The cat did not miaow.
