Saying Goodbye


Sometimes we form attachments to objects that are man made. It could be a car, a piece of clothing, a book, a piece of furniture, etc. My first digital camera, a Nikon CoolPix 880, which I purchased over nine years ago, finally died. We had been through a lot together. With it I archived almost a decade of my work and posted many shots on the internet. We shared numerous occasions and trips, together documenting and preserving many wonderful memories. I still have the box and everything that came with it. I can't bare the thought of trashing it. I feel as though it deserves a proper memorial service and burial although I know that's rediculous. A new smaller, cheaper, more efficient Cannon Power Shot has taken its place and I must admit, I already like it very much.
