Shy Moon (and The final shot with camera)

A  shy moon in sky

வெட்கத்தில் நிலா!
நீல திரை பின்னால்
மறைக்கிறாள் தன் முழு அழகை

Moon in shy!
behind the blue screen
hides her full charm

P.s. The moon was captured during my visit to nilgiris (ooty) on the third day of my travel and this was the last picture I shot with my digital camera (P&S) before it slip down and lens hit the floor. Actually it was my dad who dropped the camera accidentally when tried to capture the sky on my insistence. He was standing on the balcony of our room and focusing on the sky when the camera slipped off, but glad he didn’t put hands outside the baloney  nor the camera could have smashed falling off from 25-30 feet height. Only the next day I have planned to visit a place I wanted to do for some long time and I was quite upset because of that, but I was also worried my camera and I was in doubt could I get back the camera with its original setting.

I have lost my early camera with the same problem, but it wasn’t because of fallen down alike but my uncle’s kid pressed the lens when it popped out. I didn’t lose my photos as it was safe in memory card and the camera opens to say only “lens error, reset the camera”. I didn’t want to give up so just tried with the in charge of the homestay and they called someone and he said to come next morning and repair the camera. But he didn’t turn up until 10.am and when enquire he told that he don’t know to fix Canon cameras and as a last chance I decided to look for a camera service in Ooty. We searched for an hour and dad climbed two shops and one was Sony, but they aren’t read to open a Canon camera. I don’t want to waste time and went ahead taking photos with mobile the remaining days. Glad my brother came up with his 13mp Xiaomi mobile and other than attending calls, it was in my hand most of the time.

The good news was the camera is back with me in its original settings. Back home I gave the camera at the Canon service centre and I was holding it back in less than two days’ time and they charged minimum (INR. 550) only. I was really tensed what the result going to be but they only put a smile.

Although I'm sorry to hear about your dropped camera, I'm very glad that it has already been repaired quickly and at a reasonable cost. You got a beautiful shot of the moon before the accident with the camera.

I've tried capturing moon with my mobile cameras and all of them have turned out hopeless. That's a nice shot you have there and glad to know that Canon service center is adept.

I'm so glad you were able to have your camera fixed! The shot of the moon is fantastic - even if the camera was dropped right after.

With a smartphone camera, I can never get nice moon shots. Good to know that your camera is okay and I hope you will be able to get a new lens that will capture more beautiful shots. Have a great day!
