So. I sat down this morning to shoot my next wave of Game Boy and NES packaging photos in preparation for getting images on the site and in a new book, only to find my camera wouldn’t take pictures. I was complete baffled until I discovered the lens is bent out of shape. Evidently TSA roughed it up a bit, despite my having packed it with excruciating care. They didn’t break the bottle of locally distilled gin I had packed into the same luggage, but somehow they managed to ruin my camera.
The gin would have been messier, but much less expensive to replace. Actually, the gin probably would have ruined the camera, too. I guess what I’m saying is there was no positive outcome for this scenario.
Anyway, long story short, I have to buy a new lens. They’re pricey! And this month was already pretty much a matter of running on bank account fumes due to some other unexpected crises that have arisen in the past couple of weeks. 2016 is not off to a good start. Anyway, I’ve listed a ton of import Game Boy World 1989 titles (all complete) on eBay, so please be kind and consider bidding on some of them.
