Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: A temporary break up.
BlogMenu

May 30, 2008

A temporary break up.

It started like any relationship.

From the moment I laid eyes on him, it was love at first sight. We spent a lot of time together and I began to love how I saw the world through his eyes. He felt incredible in my hands. He wooed me and encouraged me to expand my creative gifts. He took me around the world and through him, I built so many beautiful relationships and friendships that I would have never met had it not been for him. With the click of a finger, he was always there for me exactly when I needed him, never missing the most important moments of life. He was always reliable, always on time, always the one thing in life I could count on.

Until that Saturday.

He needed a break.

He was burned out.

He had things in his memory he needed to wipe clean before he could move forward with me.

He needed time to go away and get some therapy and work out the personal issues he was having.

In a time when I needed him the most, he let me down.

I was heart broken.

I was disappointed.

But I trusted God had a purpose in everything, even this.

So I sent him away.

I went through withdrawal, but I let him have his space to work out what he needed to get done.

We had a big event to attend this weekend, and I didn't know if he was going to be back in time, but I kept trusting that he would return when the time was right.

I missed him.

But, to my surprise before I expected his return, he appeared at my door, ready for a fresh start.

I jumped for joy.

I ripped open the box and embraced once again the greatest love of my life. My Canon 5D.





It was at my last wedding that I was changing memory cards quickly right before the cake cutting, and realized I was jamming the card in the wrong way. So I took it out and tried it the correct way. Suddenly, it wouldn't go in at all, so I tried another card. It wouldn't go in. I didn't have time to freak out, so I grabbed my back up 30D camera and continued shooting the night away. But it just wasn't the same as my 5D. I was spoiled with the wide frame format. I was spoiled with how smoothly it focused. I was spoiled with how easily my fingers flowed over the buttons. When I got home and tried to disect the problem, I finally was able to shove a memory card in the slot. But that's when the error message appeared on his screen. "This card needs to be formatted". Ok, easy enough. So I went to the menu and tried to format it. "Can not format card." Um, that kind of defeats the purpose? So I tried the same card in my 30D, and it read it fine. That's when I realized, it wasn't my memory cards that were the problem, it was my 5D and I needed to send it away.

I have to say, I have been super impressed with Canon's warranty service repair. Through the website, they make it so easy to submit a repair request and I always get everything back within a week. I have previously sent in a lens to get repaired, and it has been nice to get things back in a timely manner before the next wedding. Another reason I love Canon products so much!

I am so glad to be reunited with my 5D! Hopefully, from now on, we'll live happily ever after.

You were on a break...using the Canon 30D is not considered cheating.

I'm glad to see Mr. 5D back...

Mr. 5D, don't let me friend Scarlett down again...

I'll be watching!

I'm going to do the same thing with my 1st-gen iPod when it dies (7 years running without repairs). Takes a licking and keeps on ticking!
