Yesterday I went back to a home I had photographed some time ago, in the Quilcene/Brinnon area. The Seller wanted fresh new photos because the garden was looking beautiful and they had purchased new furniture.
While the Broker went through the home and lit up everything, I went outside to capture exteriors while the light was still good. First I took some shots from the Deck:
Then I decided to head down to the yard and get some shots of the house, the yard and the view from ground level.
And then I turned my attention to the yard and the view.
After taking these shots from the top of a landscaped berm, I decided to walk down the little set of stairs in the middle of the berm. WHOOPS! – *B*O*O*M*!
My feet slid out from underneath me, popped forward and I landed on my ass. HARD. Once I stopped panting and thinking I was going to barf… I saw my camera sitting next to me. I had not put the strap over my head and it was in my hand when I went down. I hit with my elbow first but the damage was done. I tried a few photos… no dice. My wide-angle lens got damaged. It won’t focus now.
So far the bruise hasn’t shown up on my ass. Lots of fat tissue to get thru to the surface, I guess. LOL
After icing my elbow all night, it is better. Looks like this weekend I’ll be going to the city to see if my lens can be repaired. Hopefully it’s an easy fix and I can get my Hubby to take me out to a nice dinner. *pouty-face*
