In Memory of...
Please play the song below. You don't have to watch the video, but the music sets the mood.
So, the time finally came for a new camera. My Canon A590IS finally kicked it. My son was playing with it yesterday, and poof, the camera died. Usually poof means another photo was taken, but not this time... And now it takes terrible photos. Poor thing. It's ok though, the old camera has taken many good photos in it's lifetime.
|This is the second last photo taken with my old camera. Yes, as cruel as it is, like bringing in a puppy the day before you put your old dog down, I bought a new camera. And to make matters worse...|
|The was the first photo I ever took with you. Yes, you replaced my camera phone. But you lived to see so much...|
|This is the first photo taken with the new camera! Goodbye old friend! You will be missed, we've had some fantastic memories...|
|...like the time we went on that motorcycle trip through Montana and Wyoming...|
|...or the time we spent watching our home be built....|
|...and remember our first scramble? Up Mt. Yamnuska?|
|Remember how cold it was up in Yellowknife?|
|and how crowded it was in New York City?|
|We've been from coast...|
|...and many places in between!|
|We've raced marathons...|
|...leapt and flown...|
|...and made it so close to some of our destinations! But best of all...|
|...we've welcomed the most special friend to this world!|
Yes, my new camera has a lot to live up to. Imagine the places we'll go! The things we will see! The people we will meet! Yes, there are many more adventures to come. Many more. Old camera, Sir Canon A590, enjoy your retirement well! I will miss your photos and the time we've spent together.
