Bouncing camera

We found out on our recent holiday that cameras do not perform so well after being bounced. The little preview screen on my trusty, but rather tatty, 'Olympus brio' is now blank and refuses to function. At last, an excuse to buy a new camera. What a nightmare. Have you looked at what is on offer in the digital camera world? It is mind boggling. Unless you have a degree in quantum physics, there is no way you can decide on what you really want. I finally opted for an Olympus FE-170. Why? Because I liked the look of it and I could get it £40 cheaper on eBay.

P.S. AArrgghh.... I have since discovered that my old faithful camera still works perfectly well. Apart from the little screen that is. Oh well.

P.P.S. My new toy takes good piccies though. Don't you think?

Oh yes the new camera works fine but - please accept this well-meaning advice - real butch he-men don't take pictures of goddam butterflies! We take pictures of monster trucks, jet fighters, pubs and ladies with big bazookas and we stomp on butterflies with our big hobnailed boots! Mind you I have heard about you blokes from down south! Hello Henry!

Are you insane you 'orrible Tyke? Anybody can see that it isn't a real butterfly.
Do you remember the story of the Emperor's Clothes?
You've been eating too much black pudding and indulging in an unhealthy amount of extreme whippet racing.
