Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to bid farewell to a dear and constant friend, our trustworthy and true Canon PowerShot S5 1S. Your unexpected passing this afternoon was a bit of a shock, but we are grateful that you made it through an entire photo shoot before giving your spirit to the Ages.
Through rain and shine, from the first moment we held you in our hands, you made beautiful pictures. And now we lay you to rest, where you will shoot perfect images in Elysium and hosannas shall be sung in your name for eternity.

The Boy says I just wore the poor thing out, which is probably true.
The Boy had paid for a new camera before I even got across town to Tyler at Fireside Camera in the Marina. This new Canon has lots more bells and whistles, shoots in RAW and records HD video, and it took a lovely memorial photo of my dear, departed PowerShot.
Just in time for tomorrow.
Thank you, Boy and thank you little Canon PowerShot.
