PHOTO OF BRICK WALL WITH A CRACKED UV FILTER ON A CANON LENS!

Posted in Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2013 by marlandphotos

YES, I FELL AND CRACKED THE GLASS BAD ON THE UV FILTER OF MY CANON  EF 24-105 1:4 L ZOOM LENS, which was mounted on my Canon 7D camera!  I wasn’t able to tell the difference on this photo, but obviously the filter needed replacement!  Definitely minimal damage for the other options.  Removing filter and replacing it cost me 2,00o tk ($25) at Orient Cameras & Photos in Plaza A.R. on Mirpur Rd.

Brick Wall!

I HELPED THESE TWO YOUNG LADIES FIND A HANDICRAFT SHOP AND A SHOP THAT HANDLES BLOCK PRINTING SUPPLIES!  From Iqbal Rd to Farmgate to Gausia Market, Midnight Sun Restaurant and back to Iqbal Rd.  The only mishap we had was when I tripped a fell smashing to the ground with my camera in hand.  My uv filter had a ding in the side and crushed glass but my camera, the lens, and my body had no ill effects!!! A miracle at best.
