Lord Botetourt High School Homecoming Dance
Last weekend was Homecoming at Lord Botetourt. This is my baby Ashlyn and her boyfriend Austin before they headed out to the dance. Isn't she beautiful and doesn't he look dapper? :)
My camera broke. Evidentally hardwood floors and cameras don't mix. Braden and Dalton were making "movies" (yes, they are going to be the next Quentin Tarrantino's!) and my camera fell off its tripod. It is beyond repair, won't focus, just really messed up. I thought, no big deal, Ashlyn has one, same make/model as mine, that she NEVER uses, maybe has used a handful of times. I'll just use that in the meantime, wrong. Her's just beeps 3 times then shuts itself off. The batteries are charged, I don't know what's wrong with the thing. That being said, they are Samsung cameras and you know how much I dislike their customer service, or lack-there-of...I've never even been happy with the quality of pictures, so needless to say my next camera will not be a Samsung.
So, what point and shoot do you recommend? I had a Canon, I think it was a Sure Shot, that I loved (another one bites the dust due to Braden and Dalton a few years back) and this camera could not take a bad picture, and believe me, my photo abilities are not all that great and this Canon took awesome shots, always!
So I'm in the market for a new camera...oh and if any camera companies stumble upon this and have a camera you insist on letting me use and write up a gushy review with my photos, I'm open to that option too ;)
Luckily for me, I have a big stock pile of photos to use...back to blogging!
Hope everyone is well!
