Personal Tragedy...The loss of a good piece of metal

I am about to write the words that strike fear into the heart of every blogger on the face of the planet: my camera is broken. I wanted to show you what it looks like now, but I can't even take a picture of it so you can even visualize the tragedy. Last night my daughter had one of these: --a birthday slumber party with 9 of her closest friends, which was super fun and explains what I have been doing instead of blogging about food this week. There are lots of jobs that go along with hosting a sixteen hour long party for 10 girls. I of course had to record the moment with my trusty camera. Then, this morning, I think that this person found the camera on the counter and was doing this
which is of course spinning while photographing the air, which we all know is an advanced photography technique, and lost control of my favorite piece of metal and it was introduced to the hardwood floor. I am in mourning for my lost little piece of equipment. And it's really true what they say: you don't know what you've got till it's gone, because now I'm remembering all the good times I had with that camera. It was small enough to put in my purse and catch photos like these,
and handy enough that I kept it in the kitchen to capture images like thesewhich I would randomly spot during my day of cooking and think were pretty and might look good on the blog. My camera was by no means a jewel in the crown, it was more of a diamond in the rough. It was the older version of this camera

which I see is now double the pixels and half the price of the one I got as a Christmas present from my lovely gadget-gifter husband three years ago. I've known I've needed a new camera to improve the images on this site for a while, and I've been putting it off because I really like my little portable, cheap, basic camera. But now I don't know what I'll do besides take pictures with my phone camera, because the money tree, as we call it at our house, is about out of leaves this month. This is a great accidental way to get a new camera, but I think I'll be shopping for refurbished instead of brand new. Anyone have a camera they love that takes great pictures of food? Leave me a comment or a condolence on the passing of my sweet little pet.

Happy eating!
