Shutter count

This is a pretty boring photo of the Tracy Unified District office I shot this afternoon. What is interesting is how many pictures I took to get it. Not at this assignment but just over the life of the camera. I downloaded a utility that looks at the EXIF data on the file and reads the embedded count of total shutter actuations on the camera. The camera I use for work is a Canon Eos 1D MK II that is rated for 200,000 shutter actuations in it's life span. This photo reads to have been the 573,703 the shutter was fired on the camera. Technically it is living on borrowed time, just the way I feel most of the time.
