My camera has been stolen. At the ripe old age of three it was really past its prime, if indeed it ever had a period that could be described in such grandiose terms. But it was still a camera, and to say I'm feeling grumpy to find myself at the mercy of the primitive technology offered by my mobile phone is an understatement. How am I supposed to be able to create self-portrait masterpieces with a Sony Ericsson?
But I'm not the sort of person to give up easily. So after some trial and error, most of which involved figuring out which shutter sound would be least offensive (the option "silent" is curiously absent from the long list of absurd choices), I set off to the nearby town of Lewes, home of Lewes Castle. And to my surprise I realised that despite the "camera's" countless weaknesses, the results were not altogether bad. It even has a self timer!
So here I am walking up towards the castle (which was closed), wondering what type of camera to buy to replace the old Konica-Minolta... does anyone have any suggestions?
