camera gremlins

My camera has been playing up. Sometimes working, sometimes not. Darn digital age. It wasn't exposing, which I can't really fathom given that it don't work with film. ie: the picture on the back of the camera was black. (And yes I had the lens cap off).Shutter was working etc. I rang the camera clinic, have to bring it in...hmmm the delay to even take a peek at it was around 10 days. Jeepers 10 whole days without my camera. I still have my film camera, but there would be no blog / flickr pics. So I took the lens on and off, battery in and out, blew on it (how very professional and hi-tech of me) fogged up the mirrors. And lo and behold, she's working again. So I've taken a pic of a new little arrangement. Liana's jewellery has been living in the glass counter ever since we opened so I thought it was time to break her out and how sweet it goes with our vintage stacking cups.

I know nothing about the internal workings of digital cameras, but since I occasionally have this very same problem I thought I would share on the slim chance that our cameras are soul mates. Mine does this when the battery is low and I haven't flipped the view screen around or taken the lens off before the camera fully turns on. It is as if it thinks the screen is still shut, but I don't have this problem after charging the battery.

But since there is very little chance that this info is actually helpful I also wanted to say that I wish I could visit Australia just so I could pop in to your adorable shop! Love your cheerful pics.

Hmm, digital cameras can be tricky, glad you fixed it though!

Love Liana Kabel's things - and you're super right, they look fab with your tupperware. Electric even.

Yay that you got your camera working! Digital age is great but sometimes more trouble than its worth... And then funny how its just so simple as puling the batteries out and blowing on them (which I'm a HUGE fan of by the way!)

Love the huge 'E' and the little horsey on top - great touch

fixing things yourself, is wonderful, even if we don't really know what we are doing, as long as they work its okay. that is a lovely picture too, what a great way to display things.
