The Story of my camera–and you can help

Well, the news on my broken camera is bad.
Very bad.
I had thought it was a loose wire, or something that caused my camera several weeks ago to simply stop working. Sending it in for warranty, I received notice from Canon yesterday that the failure was non warrantable. According to them, the failure was due to “liquid damage to internal parts”.
Their estimate to repair the camera is practically the cost of just buying a new camera. $900.00
Unfortunately, I cannot afford to do either. I scrimped and saved for the last one, so I am looking at months and months
to do it again.
In talking with some fine folks, it has been suggested I put out a shingle and ask for donations, and perhaps sell prints and photo albums of my work in a fundraising capacity via something like Indiegogo.
Part of me wants nothing to do with this idea. There are far more worthy causes out there worth your money than giving me money so that I can take photographs again. But, then, again, if I do not ask…
If you wanted to donate money directly to me via, say, Paypal, my email address is jvstin [at]
But if I were to do a “sell prints and photo albums fundraiser”, that would require me to have a pool of images to choose from. I have thousands of pictures on Flickr, and many of you have seen what I share.
What do you like? What sorts of pictures (or if you have bookmarked a favorite, even better) would interest you in buying a print or a photo album of? Send me email at jvstin [at] and let me know.
Best Regards,
