Camera A appears to be on the way out - the memory card slot is not co-operating and won't hold the memory card.
Camera B had a flat battery. One of those ones which needs to be put into a plug-in charger. ... which I couldn't find.
Option C was to take some photos on mobile phone. However, as my mobile is of the 'so cheap and nasty that it doesn't even take photos' variety - after a bit of trawling through the office I found one of my son's cast-aside mobiles - with a charger! Yayyyy. However, once charged it had a code lock on it which I could'nt unscrabble. Even a text (on other phone) to my son didn't help, as he couldn't remember it. Arrrggghh!
Option D is what we are stuck with. Old photos dragged up from this time last year - just a few snapshots around the place in this best time of the year. Lots of citrus, bananas and happy chooks. Unfortunately, I have spotted a baby carpet snake too which is a bit ominous, especially as I have some new baby bantams.
Updated photos will happen, maybe not overnight, but they will happen. We are away for a long weekend - off to the lovely, cool Mt Tamborine. When we return, I will be buying a new camera!!
So although these are old photos, things are pretty much like this at the moment.
cheers for now
