It was another costly afternoon while enjoying Old Sacramento's free rail day. Train rides, Railroad Museum, tons of special trains outside - all free, and the hordes were ecstatic. We'd never seen so many people there (could hardly get off the freeway).

Anyway, I was trying out my backup camera, changing lenses on a new redwood planter that was placed right by an old rail line. Great time to drop a lens, right? Right on the rail itself. Bounced pretty good, too. So the auto-focus is shot, and the aperture stays on its smallest opening. Not too much fun at f16 and having to change the shutter speed to compensate. So all of the low-light shots were about 2.5 seconds.

No tears, but I need to pick up a replacement lens before Wednesday.
