I am so sad!
Ironically, I have been shopping hard for a new camera. My beloved Olympus just can't take the kind of photos I want. I have one composition that has been sitting in the lightbox for three weeks while I tried one setting after another, and could not get the darn camera to focus properly at any aperture, shutter speed, or distance. See?
Close, but no cigar, as they say. I think the translucent plastic is throwing off the autofocus. (One prime criterion for the next camera - manual focus!) So maybe my camera got jealous and ran away to teach me a lesson. Come back, please! I need you ... for now.
P.S. The little red things are plastic tips for a dental tool. The bottom ones are not needles, they are blunt tubes. My father-in-law was a dentist and retired a few years ago. He gave me a bunch of random things like this when he cleaned out the office, because he knows me well!
