Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the life of MizD’s camera: a camera whose essence was suddenly, though not unexpectedly, extinguished on the evening of December the Fifth in the year of our Lord, 2006.
True, the signs were all there: The stuttering LED that too often spewed forth cuneiform in place of digits. The dimming sensors crying for light. The morning’s greeting, not cheerful and informative, but tragic — a single, solitary and altogether ominous utterance: ERR.
Oh, poor camera, you never had a name. Poor camera, you suffered through far too many cursings while your feckless owner struggled with your outdated controls. Poor, poor camera, so battered, so used.
We commend you to the box of non-functionals, oh camera, and to Elmo, patron saint of misguided electrical discharges, we offer up this prayer: may your afterlife be filled with light and joy, and may it always be in focus. Amen.
MizD’s camera. August 2002 â€“ December 2006.
