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!)


    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!
