...Lost...

Some thing quite tragic has happened in our family. A terrible loss. A stupid loss. An "it's totaly our fault" kind of loss.
This past weekend we were at a family function in the twin cities...we were at the mall...and when we drove off we left the camera and the camera bag on top of the van! I am sure you can guess what happened! Needless to say, after calling the mall security and the police department, and re-tracing our steps and scanning the ditches and sides of the roads...we came home empty handed. And sad.
But, the silver lining {because there is always a silver lining if you look for it!}...We only lost the pictures from the weekend...I had already downloaded all the others. We had been planning on trading in our lens anyhow for something different. And we still have our back up DSLR at home...we just need to get a cleaning and some new lenses.
It could be worse. A camera is replacable. So, in the mean time I will be using my phone camera. I have heard it can take up to month to get a cleaning. I will think of not have a camera as my Lent challange!
