Broken Camera

D3 purchased a camera at a local thrift shop. It was a fixed lens Olympus that may have been about six years old. She has taken some outstanding pictures since she bought it early this year. It's price tag of thirty dollars improved tremendously when they had a fifty percent off sale. She took books from the library to learn all she could about taking photos. She has enjoyed the camera, but it is "dead as a door nail" now. Like anything with computer capabilities, repair may cost more than a new camera. Still, my young photographer is sad and it will take a while for her to save for a new one. Perhaps luck will strike twice at the thrift shop, but I'm not counting on it. In the meantime, she can borrow the "point and shoots" of two family members, but it's not the same as having her own. Here are some of her pictures.








Her portraits are amazing too, but I shy away from putting them on the www since my bad visit last spring. I'm still rather guarded with my kids' photos.

  1. She is certainly talented, and I love that these beautiful photos were taken with an Olympus camera that she only paid $15 for :)
