Shoot

October 2, 2010

E.g. organized a Photo Walk for this morning, and I decided to accompany her in case none of her Flickr friends showed up. Saint John has been beset by fog, rain, and high winds all week, tropical storm leftovers which have kept temperatures warm but outings iffy. Last night, it poured as though someone were heaving bucketsful of water against the windows.

We were in luck this morning, though. By 09 30, the rain had called it quits, and four Flickrites joined us at the King’s Square bandstand. Off we set, walking along Elliot Row to Courtenay Bay, snapping as we went.

But first, a quick techie-type conversation while waiting for the Walk sign:

E.g. : “See? Then you push this button. That’s how to take a picture.”
Sheldon : “Are you sure that’s all there is to it?”
Keith : “Whoa. That’s awesome.
Baseman79 : “How come it’s called ‘taking’ a picture and not ‘making’ a picture?”
Mark.a.m. : (“I’m new here. I’ll just stay out of this one.”)

“No flyers”. I’ll say! Look at the mess the last pilot made.

Please do not mow the lawn after dark.

It’s simple. Women love cats because cats are irresistible.

Now even Corgis can play basketball.

Courtenay Bay has many fine, sturdy poles to lean against.

Overly cropped boat, creating a dulcet watercolour effect in the background — except for that Stealth Jet.

Baseman79 likes to look at the big picture…

…while Mark.a.m. says it’s the little things that count.

Hmm, a bottle of reeb. Emit rof a looc eno. Ta-ta for now!
