My Nikon Is Dirty

My camera is in need of a professional cleaning.   *sigh*   I will be making arrangements to either take it or ship it somewhere since we have no true camera stores within a few hours of here.   Meanwhile, I can continue editing photos I have already taken.   But what if I miss something really good?   Better get out my good little point and shoot so I can start practicing.

Last night's pretty sky was especially nice because our weather was cool.   I needed long sleeves when I went out to tuck in the chickens and donkeys.  Then I took my camera out for an evening stroll.    As I was standing outside capturing the sunset, the neighbor's son drove by.   So I put on my lens cap and stood there to avoid the dust on my camera.   He asked if everything was okay.   I said, Yes, but I'm dreaming of taking down this fence.   Of course I meant because it's always in my way when I'm shooting photos in that direction.   He kind of smiled at me like he didn't understand at all.   Crazy neighbor lady, right?   Ha!



Have a great Thursday.

Hello! I found you through Daryl in NYC's blog, and your title there, My Nikon is Dirty, caught my eye. I've been down your way by car a few times; visited the elephant seals (at baby time) and Hearst Castle. May head down that way next May or June when in the US. Visit me if you like via my blog at YANKEE IN BELGRADE.
The neighbor is probably still scratching his head over your fence comment. Are you turning into Aunt Laurel? LOL

A friend of mine sent his Nikon into Nikon service for a cleaning and he got his back within two weeks - that's not too long.
I spent the time without my camera just enjoying the view. Good luck and lovely sky.

Your header looks like Normandy on D-Day. Glad they are just sunning themselves.

Some people JUST don't understand people holding a camera!...:)JP
That is a beautiful image!

You can capture some amazing image with a point and shoot camera. I have one that I take everywhere with me, and I really enjoy using it.

Fences may make good neighbors, but they make for lousy landscape photos.
