I dropped my camera...


That evening I was cycling to Pizzeria Primo Ciao Ciao for dinner with Min Khai, Syjia, Yiting and Weiling. Instead of the bag I usually bring, I brought my black slinging bag and didn't zip the compartment where my camera was put into (like I usually do in NUS - never zipped my bag).

When I took my bag out from the my bike's basket, my camera just dropped with lens facing down (the bag was placed vertically in the basket).

And resulted in...


When I looked at the cracks, my heart cracked, but luckily it's the lens filter that's cracked, not the lens thankfully, and surprisingly images can still be taken normally with the cracked lens filter attached.

Then I checked around the camera body and found some scratches, which really made my night doomed, as I found the permanent imperfection as shown above. My GF3's gorgeous metallic red body.... sobz...

Thank God, for protecting my camera from malfunctioning and teaching me a lesson of not being careless anymore in such thing.

And then I remembered a quote from 貧窮貴公子山田太郎ものがたり that can be a consolation:
「世界上再完美的東西,都會有它毀壞的一天。」


PS: Get your camera a lens filter if you haven't had one.
