A bright day on a Midwestern campus. Brightness: erratic coming outs of a reclusive sun delights, and occasionally surprises. The campus yard fills up with half naked men and women doing the Naked Mile. The small Canon camera creaks now, almost packed up – a cat with seven lives. One often wonders about the resilience of the poor little thing. A few months ago, it fell down and lost its digital viewfinder so one has to look through the old viewfinder to take pictures. A few weeks ago, it fell down again and the digital viewfinder came back to life. Then went off again after a few days.
Until it finally succumbs to the inevitable laws of nature, one hears the creaking trudging of a new tool of the modern age. Switch, view, click. One more day in the life of the Canon explorer.
