A few months back the 5D suffered a wicked blow and was put out of commission. I recently took it down to Walden Photo to get it fixed, even though it was now going to be relegated to the third string camera.
Recently my car’s slow descent towards the junkyard was quickened. The latest development is that I don’t have turn signals. I know from experience that it would cost about 80 bucks to get the turn signals fixed.
The estimate on the 5D came back at about 300 bucks.
The Newly Repaired 5D
So here is an example of my priorities being screwed up. I didn’t even have to think for a second about spending 300 dollars to get my third string camera fixed.
On the other hand, I’m planning on buying a new car in the next month or so, this means I won’t even consider spending 80 bucks so that the rest of the drivers on the road have a clue what direction I’m turning.
So if you drive by and see my car mangled on the side of the road in what looks like an outtake from Blood on the Asphalt, don’t feel bad for me.
