Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
The camera we have had for years is getting to be a big pain with all the trash that keeps accumulating inside it. For the last two years the Teams have worked around the trash to take usable pictures. The OFM has decided to get a new camera as soon as money and opportunity arrive at the same place at the same time.
Here is an example of a picture we took this afternoon down at the pier.
Notice all the disturbances in the picture. We want nice pictures again but it may be a bit before that happens.
As an example of the cropping and devilment the OFM goes through, here is the same picture cropped for our blog.
Another picture received a lot of cropping to come up with this bit photography.
There is not any way to clean the trash out without spending more than a new camera would cost.We have blown into the camera with compressed air. We have sucked through the camera with our shop vacuum. All we get for our troubles is the dirt changes places on the chip. In the world of easily carried cameras (shirt pocket size) optical viewfinders are non-existent. So the OFM is trying out cameras to see what the next least undesirable option might be. We really want to be able to record our attempts at trying to have tooooo much fun.
