You might have heard, if you’ve been following my Facebook or blog for any time at all, I went on a trip to England and France early in the month.
We had a great time, all except for two things.
1. I got a cold (grrr!)
2. My camera broke midway through the trip. (grrr, yet again!)
Luckily, my sister had a camera that was compatible with my stuff, so I got to use hers the rest of the trip.
Funny thing is, when I got back to America and checked into getting my camera fixed…it was cheaper to buy a new one.
So, this past weekend I went out and got a new camera.
You know what was fun about that? Well–besides getting a new camera?
It was the “lost pictures” of the trip I found.
I inserted the memory card of my broken camera into the new one and viola, pictures I’d taken before it broke!
They brought a smile to my face. Especially this one:
Me and my sweet hubby were at the Eiffel Tower and a guy handing out roses approached. My sweet hubby bought me a rose! I’m not much of a flower person, you can even ask him, but I tell ya, this one meant a ton to me.
We’re in Paris. We’re eating ice cream, looking up at the Eiffel Tower, and he gets me a rose. Probably the most expensive single rose we’ve ever bought, but the memory will be forever engrained in my mind.
I had to take a picture, which now that I see it, looks horribly un-romantic with the phone and paper and pen around it.
Not to mention the Coca-Light bottle it’s in.
These next pictures were fun too:
Sure was fun to see these pictures after the fact like this.
But, Oh, I did have to take a picture on the new camera.
Check it out:
So now I’m ready to go on another adventure with my new camera. I never know when a chance to make a memory might creep up on me, and I always like to have my camera handy so I can document it.
