But, I can’t afford a new camera. My old Canon Powershot S410 has now gone completely insane on me. From time to time it was doing this thing where everything looked like an oil painting that melted. Now it’s stuck on that. I looked up the cameras my favorite photographers use, and the least expensive one (Nikon D40) is still in the $600 range. I can get a new Powershot for around $150, which is probably what it would cost me to fix it, but that’s annoying. It’s like spending $150 for nothing, for what I already have. Infuriating.
This is the last picture my old camera took. I took it walking down the Hudson with my neighbors Beth and Malik. This path has been closed for a while for renovations. This shot doesn’t capture how nice it looks. They’ve landscaped it nicely, flowers all over, and terraces every once in a while with chairs under trees and shade, more than what is shown here. When I have a camera again, maybe I’ll take shots of what it looks like from here to Battery Park.
I’ve been busy doing the final edits of my book. Oh, and my friend Jackie designed a blog for my new book, AND is helping me migrate this and my other blog to new and better blog software.
Here’s the blog for Unbelievable. It’s not done yet, but it’s enough done that you’ll get the idea.
