The photo above frames a rare kind of insect known as Shoitaan’er Ghora (translate: Horse of the Devil). You don’t usually find it in Dhaka, and I was “fortunate” enough to shoot one in Cox’s Bazar this weekend. I quote the term -fortunate- because I dropped (and thus, broke) my camera while shooting it. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, THAT is the last photo I shot. The spring and cover of my lens broke, and my G9 is a wreck. I still haven’t managed to take it to a service centre due to certain “technical difficulties”. Surprisingly, I’ve been a proud owner of the Powershot G9 for only two months. I owe it a testimonial since this baby has competed with SLRs and has managed to snap pretty darn nice photos while providing me with immense satisfaction in this short period. It has been very kind to me. Thank you, darlin’!
If the camera cannot be fixed, be it for whatever reasons, this stupid insect will probably be my last capture until I get a new camera (which, btw, will NOT be anytime soon). Tssk tssk.
I feel like somebody took my kid away from me and fed it to crocodiles.
Final words to the insect: I HATE YOU, I HATE YOU, I HATE YOU. DAMN YOU!
