mother nature seems to be having major issues regulating her body temperature this weekend. this seemed to rub off on me yesterday since in a matter of ten minutes i managed to go from a sweaty mess, to a rained on mess, back to a sweaty mess.
in hopes of escaping the warmth of an airconditionerless house last night, and at the same time not realizing a thunderstorm was rolling in, we grabbed our cameras and decided to roam around jamie’s neighborhood. after walking 6 blocks or so from her place, the rain started coming down. since i had both cameras in hand, one with a neck strap and one without, i tucked them under my sweater to avoid the rain. living up to my nickname that i was reminded of the other weekend, i made a quick decision and without thinking, i let go of the camera i thought was strapped around my neck, but instead i dropped. my. camera. way to go, crashley. oh how i wish i was in a padded room instead of on a concrete sidewalk. thank goodness the camera and lens came out with minor scrapes and bruises, but it left me sulking a while over my clumsiness. i even disciplined myself by doing some work related things instead of getting sebastian joe’s ice cream. after i replayed the scene in my head, thinking of everything i should not have done, i realized how fortunate i was that nothing was majorly damaged. and that i’m only human and we all make idiotic mistakes.
i happened to catch these two fun photos before the cartwheeling camera incident. hope everyone else had an accident free weekend!
