i was crossing ice from a ice dam blow out and in an attempt to snap a photo my feet slipped out from under me. i did a nice flop over onto my back. if my aches are any indication i must have landed somewhat on my right hip side. i have a little backpack that i carry camera stuff in and i landed right on that. i know my head did a little bounce on the ice, not bad though. it's always very disconcerting to be out in the woods alone when something like that happens. if i'd passed out how long would it be til i was found? since my friend karen did her ice slippage i see the possibility's in a new light. we aren't all invincible! karen just started back to work finally after an entire year off. happily i appear to have no physical injuries requiring medical treatment. may get some back spasms later and bruises. this one will hurt my pocketbook the most.
as you can see the rebel and macro lens are intact for the most part...it took that picture of the damaged powershot. i did discover that the flash on the rebel is dysfunctioning since the fall. so that will have to be repaired.
since i landed on my lenses i quickly changed lenses a few times to see if they would be okay. all lenses appear to be just fine....and doesn't blossom look cute. she's limping a bit post monday walk. i tossed her toy a bit, but she has enough lab in her to not know when to stop so i just put it away.
