Paris When it Drizzles


In Mourning

So, I'm mourning the loss of my Panasonic LX3 digital camera.  I left it on a train in Switzerland while there on holiday with my parents.  Not only did I lose my camera (and my mind), I lost hundreds of photos that I took from a trip to Canterbury, a visit to Sissinghust Castle in Kent, a long weekend in Paris, and a few days in the beautiful mountains of Switzerland.  I had some really great shots and was loving my new camera.  It was about a month ago, but I'm still having a hard time getting over it.  I had some amazing shots of the Louvre at night with bicycling tourists and a wondrous night sky.  Oh well, lesson learned.  I submitted a claim to the insurance company, so we'll see if I get any money to replace the camera.  The photos are gone forever.  I guess the only good thing to say about the whole incident is that Panasonic upgraded the LX3 to a new and improved LX5.  If the insurance money comes in, they'll have paid for a new upgrade.  I couldn't wait for the whole insurance process, so I went ahead and ordered the LX5.  It should be here by the end of the week, allowing me to take more photos and make more posts to the blog. :)
