Or your house or anything else?

There are plenty of people who buy a new car and just drive the wheels off it, service it only when something breaks, never even washing it - they get five years out of it and buy a new one. That has some merit - you don't spend any time worrying about your car - it's just a tool

Then there are those who primp over their cars and keep them like new. I suspect most of us are somewhere in the middle - as we might be with cameras.

I clean the inside of my car once per year and run it through a self-wash.

But shoot in Program mode just because I can get an image - hmmmmm. No thanks, all those buttons and dials do have a purpose. I like some of them.

Holga, baby. Guesstimate distance and shoot.
