Oh, Canada!

Kathy & I just returned home from a fantastic 2-week vacation to Nova Scotia with our good friends Bill & Cathy from Ohio.  Two weeks – and we’re still friends!

We had a wonderful time, good weather and excellent food.  And I have a few thousand photos to process!  One broken camera was the only bummer of the vacation.  More to come on that, but (a) I didn’t drop it, and (b) it was my backup 5D that somehow lost it’s mirror.  We’ll have to see if it is worth repairing or not, assuming that repair is possible.

Today was catch up day, mostly spent getting ourselves physically ready for our inevitable return to “reality.”  I don’t think there is any way to fully prepare mentally.  So that’s going to hurt, but it is the price we pay.  Well worth it, I think, for a couple of weeks away.

Here are a few quick highlights to show that we were there.  I’ll have a bunch of things to talk about over the coming days and weeks as I get all my “film” developed.  Stay tuned!

  1. Welcome back! Great initial photos and we look forward to hearing all about it when you get back into the routines.

    1. Not too many lighthouses in Colorado, I guess. Glad you like these – there are a few more to follow. I may have missed a few, but there are a lot of lighthouses in Nova Scotia!

    1. Thanks, Monte. I’ll probably write some more about the camera episode, but all’s well, and I have a few more to use as backups in the mean time!

  2. Beautiful photography. The first shot is gorgeous. Sorry to hear about the camera, I know all about broken cameras though in my case I did drop mine. Hmm… you weren’t having a go at me there, were you? 😉

    1. Ha, not at all, Cedric! I have a history of dropping cameras too. Although fortunately only one – my Fuji X10 – that I managed to drop twice.
