I finally dropped my Nikon off for some much-needed TLC last week.
It was tough letting go, I admit it. But when the technician cleaning my lens muttered something about it "living in an unclean environment" as the pile of dirty Q-tips on the table grew larger, I felt ashamed of my selfish clinginess.
The poor thing has suffered such abuse over the past few years! Even cameras deserve a vacation, don't they? I vow to take much better care of it from now on.
It helped to have my iPhone - I even discovered I can take videos! But I'll be so glad to hold my Nikon in my hands again. Nothing can take its place (except maybe a Nikon D7000...)
I've been going through some 'old' photos, reminiscing about the good times I've shared with my camera, and look what I discovered! Some shots of a day we spent together in Georgetown, Texas back in July.
Antiques and architecture... two things my camera and I both love!
We were there for several hours and since I was on a tight budget and only window-shopping, I ended up with dozens and dozens of photos.
I'll start with the courthouse... (I love courthouses, don't you?)
I have no idea who this is, but no courthouse is complete without a statue or two, right?
I loved the contrast of colors and materials they used on the courthouse. What a great clock!
Lady Justice - let's hope she still wields some influence!
Keeping an eye on the courthouse square.
It looks surprisingly clean, doesn't it, considering all of those pigeons?
Come back tomorrow for "Georgetown Flashback, Part 2"!
