Sunrise 17 January 2007

A few days ago, I was taking a photo of the sunrise and my best camera broke. It has one of those auto-focus lenses, and now it doesn’t whirrrrrr. . . . it goes click click click clunk and I get a message “system error.”

Luckily, I have a second camera, almost as good, but the truth is, I really love the best camera, so I’ve been a little off on taking photos for a few days as I mourn the demise of my favorite. I suspect it would cost me more to have it fixed than to buy a new one. It was expensive when I bought it, but cameras better, smarter and faster, with greater capacities have come out since then at lower cost.

Meanwhile, I will use the second best until I can get my hands on another BEST.

Sunrise in Kuwait, temperature 0° C. / 32° F, yes, folks, that is FREEZING, but the forecast for the coming week is warmer, and even (WOOOO HOOOOOO!) RAIN!

  1. Just as good Mashallah beautiful! I missed the rain because I was in Dubai! I want rain.. hmm, even though I’d prefer the much more spring rain that drops every once in a while!

  4. N. – A good strong rain would be wonderful, wouldn’t it? Did you know they had SNOW in Baghdad this week? I think a good snow in Kuwait would be a lot of fun (for maybe 15 minutes!)

    GOOD MORNING TO YOU, KINANO! 🙂

    Amu, we get up early. There is something, to me, so unearthly about the early morning peace and the beauty of the haze just before sunrise. 🙂

    Big Diamond’s camera broke over Christmas – maybe they’re reaching their natural life span?

  8. Aha! Little Diamond, you may be right; she got hers a few months before I got mine. We need to know how Sporty Diamond’s is holding up; we got outs at the same time.

  9. Amu, I’ve been having the same problem. It just feels so snug and warm in bed, and the marble floors are COLD!
