One Photo | Twenty Words

Grown up photographers
 with big girl cameras
 check the charge
 left in the battery
before leaving for a day out. 
***
We had a date with Dutch friends for a morning at the National Army Museum and I had to make do with the camera on my phone.  The above shot is the only useable one I got.
Why not join Abi to see what others are describing with just one photo and twenty words?

S'okay...I didn't even have a card in my camera last time I took it out to use. How daft is that?

You know what I do? I leave home with a camera without an SD card... rendering it useless. But as they say, the best camera is the one you have with you ;)

we have all been there unfortunately but thanks goodness for camera phones and being able to capture that shot!

Abi said...

I have done that so many times! I have also checked the battery charge, put it into charge over night and forgot to put the battery back in the camera before going out! Such a pain!

Alison said...

uh oh! this has happened to me before too!

I think the comments show you are not alone. My battery normally dies just before I find "the perfect shot"!

Mel said...

It is a shame as its such a sweet shot - just print it out small and it will be okay.

Ah yes - we're all empathising as we've done that. I bought a second to prevent this happening so now my speciality is leaving the SPARE battery in the other handbag.

Been there, done that. But, the best camera is the one you have with you.

I've left the SD card behind. I've also put in the uncharged battery, rather than the fully charged one.

Kirsty.A said...

Oh that does make me cross. Did your Dutch friends take any they could send you?

scrappyjacky said...

I've definately been there!!

Jane said...

it's happened to us all!!

Sheena said...

This has happened to us all I'm afraid, at least once!!

It would seem we have all done this, or a variation, at some point. I'm grateful to now have a decent phone camera.

PS word verification is fiendishly difficult today!
