Two years ago something happened

Something that is just part of exploring kite aerial photography.

Something that kite aerial photographers deem as inevitable and that would come in time.

And came it did with me two years.


Yup two year ago my camera crash landed. What's even more hard was that the camera not only crash landed it also got soaked.


As we all know salt water and electronics don't go well.

Though I might say that I was quite lucky because after that event my camera still functioned well for some time. Indeed for a long time. For two years until sometime late last year it finally broke down.

I went down to quiapo to have them take a look at it. At first kuya fixed the problem of the camera not turning on. That took him some time. Then I pointed to him that the camera won't read my memory card anymore. 

He took the camera again for a second look. Opened it up and there voila! the electronic board is whitey because of the corrosion.

That part would need to be replaced and that would cost me some money.

my dear D60 in all it's glory mounted in the kite aerial photography rig

There close to the beach line. Where the sea meets the beach. Somewhere there my camera crash landed. Then the wave got a snag of it.

Though I'm very lucky

Because I have friends who know and understand enough what I do and trust me enough. That they lent me their cameras :)
