On the first night of our recent road trip we stayed in Page, Arizona, near the shores of Lake Powell. That evening I downloaded photos from my D800 to my laptop. After doing so, for the first time ever, I forgot to turn-off the camera. The next morning the battery was completely dead, which is when I realized that I had forgotten the battery charger. This was bad news since we were going to be spending the morning photographing on Lake Powell, the driving to Zion National Park.

If you have followed my blog, you know I have posted several photos taken on the Lake Powell cruse. Those photos were taken with my D200 and a 12X28 wide-angle lens. My plan was to use both cameras, D200 with a wide-angle lens and the D800 with a 28×300 lens. But, now I only had use of the one camera.

So, I started searching online for a camera shop. Most of us who take photos know that over the years our favorite independent camera shops have gone out o business, primarily due to the “big-box” stores. However, I was able to find a camera shop, Terry’s Camera Trading Co. in Kanab, Utah, which was on our way to Zion National Park. I called Terry and ask him if he had a charger for a Nikon D800. He said he might, but would not know till he could see the numbers on the battery. Since it was a Nikon, he felt pretty sure he would have a charger. 

Arriving in Kanab, we found the camera shop on the main street of Kanab, where Terry has been for 34 years. And yes, he had a charger — for me, Terry was a “lifesaver”.

Now one of my favorite places in the world is Terry’s Camera Trading Co. in Kanab, Utah — you should see his collection of old cameras.
