Vacation Pictures

We just returned from our mini-2008 vacation to the North Shore of Lake Superior. I had the pleasure of sitting on my patio on the shore of the big lake, and just snapping away.

Here are a few of my favorites.



SUNRISE ON LAKE SUPERIOR

PINK SKY MOON

TWO HARBORS LIGHTHOUSE

COUNTRY CHURCH

SUNRISE THROUGH THE TREES

It only took me about 4 1/2 rolls of film to come up with five good pictures. (I actually have a few more, but you know how boring it is to see other people's vacation photos.)

Digital photography has its place, but I still prefer good old-fashioned film. I think, if I were to use my digital camera, I'd be so busy reviewing the pictures, and prematurely deleting the ones I'm not happy with, that I'd miss out on the "big picture", so to speak. Plus, a big part of the fun is the anticipation of waiting for the pictures to come back from the processor.

This post has nothing to do with music, but I guess one could be inspired enough by them to write a good song.
