Thursday night we took Chris’ sister out for crabs. It was the one thing she really wanted to do during her 3 weeks in America.
The crabs were delicious but it was one of “those meals” with an almost one year old in tow.
Not 10 minutes into the meal, Will had stretched my shirt out down to my navel, exposing my oh-so-attractive nursing bra to 40+ people.
A few minutes later Will tried Old Bay. He didn’t like it. Hysterics ensued.
I didn’t open a single crab the entire meal and instead spent most of it trying to console Will when I wouldn’t let him eat the sprinkler head in the pile of mulch down the street.
Oh and then there was the moment when I opened my camera bag to find shattered glass everywhere. I know exactly how crushed I looked at that moment because Chris helpfully took a photo…with the camera that had been covered in pulverized glass just a minute before:
Turns out though, the shattered glass belonged not to my expensive lens but to my $20 lens filter. I don’t know what would have happened to my lens without it.
Filters can improve the quality of your photos and they can protect your camera from dust, dirt…and whatever happened that shattered my filter in the first place. Worth it if you ask me.
