To Flash Or Not To Flash

I am a bit irked and not in the mood. I think my only flash broke down. Yes, the built-in flash seems broken. It is really irritating when things get broken. What else can I say, it's broken and I am irritated by it. It may not mean to some but it means a lot to me.

Damage to things is quite relative. It really varies from different people on how it affects their psych.

Oh well, I guess it will be just going to the service center I just don't know when, soon I hope.

I'm just stumped!!!

*** UPDATE: 2009-09-28 ***

Well, I brought my camera to Canon's Service center last Thursday and I am waiting anxiously on what really happened to the built-in flash, what caused it to happen, and how much it will cost me. I guess it's part of having such gadgets.

*** UPDATE: 2009-10-20 ***

Oh well, it's almost a month now since I turned in my camera for service for flash repairs and all I get from Canon's Customer Representative is that the parts aren't available yet as of last Thursday (2009-10-15). How much longer do I have to wait?

Red Flowers

It's been a rainy week. Occassionally, there would be some gusts along with the rain and there times when it just drizzles softly. I took advantage the drizzling and cloudy morning today. Took some photos of the red flowers in our garden which was quite blooming a lot lately.

Here are my favorites:

Catching The Rain - actually, it just caught the drizzles as at this time it was only drizzling. Of course, I had to be under an umbrella to protect my beloved gear -- 1000D + Kit Lens!

Watching The Cloudy Skies - A pair of red flowers looking up above. Not a trace of blue.. only white clouds sending some drizzle.
Not Alone - This one is not alone in the drizzle. There's quite a few of these beautiful red flowers that are so much in bloom. All of them catching the drizzle.
