My A1000 dropped and is broken, and last photos :-(

Not to blame Ontarian, but I was holding the camera close to the ground photographing kittens at the same level, as he suggested, and the camera dropped while its lens barrel was extended. The camera was close to the ground so the camera strap didn't prevent it from hitting the ground. Now the lens is bent rightward:

The LCD screen still works and shows a decentered view for one second before showing a message like "The lens can't zoom in or out. Please turn of the camera and try again."

Here are the last photos it took:
