Time to get a new camera?

As some of you already knew, I broke my D5000 DSLR a few months ago. That, combined with other changes in life, put me into a sad mood that I haven’t been able to update my blog for a long while.

It was on just the second day into the northern France trip, outside of the Notre Dame in Bayeux – maybe I somehow offended God and it was my immediate punishment, the camera fell on the concrete ground up side down. Luckily the lens hood was on so the Sigma lens was intact. But I couldn’t take any more pictures with the body. It kept saying Autoexposure Error. I was very upset.

One of my pictures was published

Finally received a copy of How Music Works by David Byrne at my doorstep. I’m honored that one of my pictures was included in the book.

David Bryne is a Scottish-born Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and cofounder of Talking Heads. He has been the recipient of many awards, including an Oscar and a Golden Globe. Published by McSweeney’s which is based in San Francisco, How Music Works is David Byrne’s buoyant celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about. A brainy, irresistible adventure, the book is an impassioned argument about music’s liberating, life-affirming power.

Here is how David describes music: “You can’t touch music – it exists only the moment it is being apprehended – and yet it can profoundly alter how we view the world and our place in it. Music can get us through difficult patches in our lives by changing not only how we feel about ourselves, but also how we feel about everything outside ourselves. It’s powerful stuff.”

My picture that is in the book is Great Hall of Mirrors that I took at Château de Versailles near Paris. To be honest, I had doubt at first when McSweeney’s contacted me. I wasn’t sure whether it’s a scam as I couldn’t believe it. And yes, now I’m relieved. 🙂
