This Space for Rent

A70 swan song

Our primary digital camera died today -- after taking about 5000 pictures, the automatic lens-opening mechanism started acting flaky, and today it just ground to a stop half open, and when I tried cycling the power (by pulling the battery pack, replacing it, and pushing the power button), the lens unit made a little *crack* noise and stopped functioning. But, before the latest el-cheapo digital camera (I say "el cheapo" with a sort of hollow laugh, because it cost US$300 when we bought it two years ago) died today, I managed to get a couple of pictures of trolleys:
