Dropped My Near-New Canon SX730HS

I thought I had the strap secure around my wrist, but somehow I dropped my near-new Canon SX730HS camera about 4 feet onto pavement today.

I picked the bits out of the iris at the front of the lens that opens and closes when the camera is powered on or off, and it’s cycling OK.

Found that an old Nikon F2 body cap covers the now non-protected lens nicely in the retracted position. Glad to have found a fix, but. . . Sigh. . .

Walk on the Wild Side — Species at Risk Seminar in Port Coquitlam

We great enjoyed Walk on the Wild Side, a species at risk in the Tri-Cities seminar put on by the South Coast Conservation Program today.

Interesting and informative, and the nature walk along the Coquitlam River was fun!
