Well I killed another camera. Yep, the Canon S80 is busted. Needs £150 worth of repairs -- about half what it cost. This has upset me because of course, I covet a better camera now. I am thinking it's time to step back in the real world and get a digital SLR.
Lovely, wonderful Damon bought me a new Casio supercompact to cheer me up. A new version of the one I used to have (and broke - actually I had three. Lost one, broke two.) This is nice because I can have it, literally, in my pocket all the time. The S80 was a little bit too big for that. In fact I think what killed it was having it in my handbag all the time. I do treat cameras badly. But then what's the point of having one if you don't have it with you all the time?
Anyway, to celebrate my devolution back to supercompact, I'm documenting my world. This is partly inspired by my friend Eric's snapshots of his daily commute over there in Pennsylvania. I think we may be attempting to inject excitement into a desperate and grey reality, but HEY. At least we're trying.
A full, unabridged and no-holds-barred version of My Days will be available on Flickr. You'll have to be a a friend/family of mine over there to see them all though. I think even my friends and family will wish they didn't have to see it after a while, so don't fall out of your chair to get there. However, to tempt you, by using Flickr's fabulous notes feature I will be offering insightful, exclusive, revealing and humorous commentary on my photos.
