I am still without my camera or my cat Gwynnie. My lovely Fuji X100S was returned to me pretty hastily from the Fujifilm repair shop with a note attached claiming that it was in full working order. Sadly, that was true for a mere few minutes before the same problem began occurring again, resulting in not being able to take any shots at all. Disappointed I filed another repair request and sent it back to the repair centre with a terse letter attached asking them to do a proper diagnostic test this time and, that if they couldn’t repair my camera, then they should replace it and make it snappy! (No pun intended). Luckily it’s still within warranty, however it is a real nuisance that I’ve been having so much difficulty with it since I got it last Christmas.
As for my lovely little moggie Guinevere, I believe she must be on her own travels. I’ve seen hide nor hair of her since last weekend, most unlike her. All I can hope for is a postcard perhaps…
With all the trials and tribulations of late, I’ve decided that once I get my camera back in full working order I am going to treat myself to a photo weekend in Berlin. I once lived there many moons ago, but was unfortunate enough not to have the use of a camera, so I never recorded my time there. My hope is that I will be able to return soon and perhaps try to capture some of the essence of the Berlin I knew and loved, just five years after the wall came down. I would imagine it has completely changed in that time. In fact, I was there for an extended weekend back in 2004 and, it was already very different than I remembered. Lots of new buildings in spaces that at the time of my residency were muddy expanses full of cranes and dormant building equipment. It should be a fascinating experience full of nostalgia.
Have a great day all!
