Let me start by saying I’m a very organized person (my friends might call me anal-retentive, I just call it precise). I always keep track of everything I have whenever I’m out. Yesterday I was at a wedding for the day. Great wedding, great day. My first Greek wedding, with lots of food, lots of dancing, and even more food. No plate smashing though, for legal reasons. Unfortunately at the end of the night, I forgot to take my camera off the back of my chair. I grabbed my jacket and left without the camera. That’s so unlike me, I never lose anything. It wasn’t until today when I went to look at the photos I took from the wedding that I couldn’t find the camera. I searched the house, searched the car, but my fears were realized – I forgot my camera. I called the banquet hall and they’re closed today. I’ll be calling first thing tomorrow morning. I’m hoping someone turned in my camera to the banquet hall staff.
So I spent the afternoon lying on the couch, wallowing in despair. Knowing that I’m missing my camera, 2 memory cards and my rechargeable batteries. And also knowing that I can’t afford right now to buy the replacement digital camera I’d planned on. So depressing. This might make a big impact on my daily photos. I really hope my camera turns up tomorrow.
Update 9/06 – I called the banquet place. Nothing in lost and found, but it could be elsewhere. They’ve got my number in case it turns up but I’ll be calling back tomorrow. I’m trying to contact the bride to see if it was turned into her at the end of the night.
Update 9/08 – It’s alive! Turns out the camera was found at the end of the night at the wedding reception and it was turned in to the bride. She’s got it and I’ll be getting it back on the weekend. Phew. I’ll now return to regular photo-blogging.
