      Again, missing the point. We all agree…that part is a given.

    one month with no desert for this child

    • jamiegrrrl

      I agree. You must not allow him to go to Las Vegas or Palm Springs, or any other desert vacation spot. Dessert, on the other, hand…TOTALLY ok.

      That’s right, no desert! No dessert, either.

    When I had a fancy lens I always kept a UV haze filter on it to reduce damage from accidental drops and bumps.

    On a lot of these photos, I say, “Ah … that sucks.” THIS one made me gasp to the point that I stopped breathing for a solid 5 seconds. So, so sorry.

  • Juli Eckmeier Cosack

    oh NO!!!! 🙁 my worst nightmare

  • James Caldwell

    Ours did that to a friend’s lens handing it to them.  Luckily, we got insurance to cover such incidents.

    I.would.cry. OMG

    Never let a child near such things. I am buying one of these today only because of the exchange rate mine is costing me 1900 USD. Spending that much on a lens almost gives me diarhhea which is why I put it off for so long. If this happened to me It think my heart would skip a few beats.
