So I killed yet another barn camera yesterday. I had first broke the zipper on the case Tom had given me for it a while ago. And then yesterday the camera fell out of my coat pocket and out of the case. It busted the door that holds the battery in. I am sorry Dave. It had a short life. Here’s the last photo it took.
Tom against his better judgement had given me a camera for Christmas. It is a Canon PowerShot Elph and is similar to the camera he has used during offroad motorcycle trip these last 2 years. (See http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=724793)
I am thinking it is an omen that the old barn camera broke the day after I received the new one, and I am guessing it’s a bad omen. So do you think my new camera will last at least as long as Tom’s has on his treacherous motorcycle trips?
Barns and cameras are just a tough combination. Maybe it’s an omen that this is the camera you are supposed to have for your barn camera and it will last a very long time.
Teresa, you are more optimistic than I am. I sure hope this is the barn camera for the ages!
Oooooohhhhh nooooooooo! How many is that now? 🙂
We have lost track. I am thinking this may have been the fourth.
