50,000 Photos and Counting

My father was a photographer; I grew up developing black and whites in our basement darkroom. After he passed away (6 years ago today) I purchased a Nikon D70, a digital SLR.

I have taken over 50,000 photos and on the 53,639th photo the reflector stuck upwards, I feared that the camera was dead.

I took the lens off, manually pushed the reflector into a “closed” position. And, while the CF card was out of the camera, fired the shutter. All is now well, and 53,640 and 41 photos look good.

You can see some of my many pictures on My Smug Mug Account or on My Flickr Account and a smattering across these websites:
