Trip to Jamesburg

img_5344This morning I took a trip to Canons Jamesburg offices to have my lens looked at. I have the Canon 28-135 EF lens and as of late I’ve noticed how loose it’s been. Upon dropping it off and explaining my issue he examined the lens and said it was nothing tightening a few screws couldn’t fix. Upon further examination he looked at me puzzled and asked “What’s all this green stuff?” I began explaining my recent experience at an outing where people were celebrating an Indian tradition called Boli. I told him I had never experienced anything like and most likely wouldn’t get the chance anytime soon. He looked up at me and smiled. “I’m from India. I know exactly what your talking about. For those of you who haven’t heard of it Holi is an ancient celebration of good over evil. During the celebration people hug and wish each other “Happy Holi”. You also playfully smudge a colorful powder on one another which in this case got a little out of hand. At the time I grabbed my camera and at a safe distance (or so I thought) started taking pictures. Mix Holi fest with a lot of energetic people, a lot of alcohol and an over abundance of powder and you have a war. Everyone including me were covered head to toe in it before long. It was fun but it was insane. I managed to clean my camera and lens pretty thouroughly but I didn’t get it all. I’m sure Canon will do a great job. They always do and in good time. I would recommend the to anyone .
