a missed opportunity
I opened the door this morning to see thin patches of snow on the ground. Naturally, I grabbed my camera as I left the house. As the pup and I walked down the path, a small black cat ran up to us. A perfect photo opportunity, I thought, and turned the camera on.
The camera turned itself off. Yes, the battery was dead. I managed to get the pup away from the cat (no easy feat) and ran back inside for camera #2.
We got back outside to discover that – yay – the cat was still there. I pressed the power button and nothing happened. You guessed it, the battery was dead.
There was no point in running back inside for camera #3, since I knew that battery needed charging, and I no longer have a film camera.
Pfft .. what, I ask you, is the point of having multiple cameras if I cannot keep at least one charged!
