We bloggers are a crazy bunch...










This is our friend Mike with his 55 pound salmon caught this summer in B. C. What if nobody had had a camera handy? It's not often anybody gets a beautiful picture of the one that didn't get away, is it?!

Darly mentions on her blog that we are rarely without our cameras any more... it's true. However, she did forget to take it along on her fishing trip last weekend.... which was the perfect opportunity to display this shot. I didn't take it...but thank goodness somebody was there snapping away!

She had us laughing when she said hers was even in use whilst sitting on the toilet.... (she did mention that the lid was closed) but the reason for some of the laughter was the fact that I had done the same thing last week... getting pics to record progress of cabinet installation in the laundry room/bathroom downstairs......yes, it is still at the "in progress" stage because as usual, life interferes......













it had already been out in the sawdusty garage watching the building of said cabinets.

...documenting a special jig.... cheering when it worked like a charm!

It's at the dinner table .. stop! wait til I get a picture for my blog!










It even interrupts Mickey's dinner..... he kept walking right up to me wondering why I was crouched way down in the tall grass ..........














We take pictures of old pictures.....























.... we take pictures of weeds....... because they look "cute" .....










Sometimes it averts a temper tantrum if we see humour and a photo "op". in a frustrating situation ...... as in yesterday morning........

When this egg hit the floor, all plans for continuing with cinnamon buns was almost abandoned.... after all...it could have been a sign that the rest of the day might not go quite as swimmingly as planned .....











however, ...... perserverance paid off..... yummily so! I even got a few more pics of the buns for my other blog before most of them disappeared... .....

That is so true about bloggers and photos-LOL! How boring our blogs would be without all the photos of our daily life and surroundings. It has made me more aware of the little beauties all around me that I too often didn't notice before I got my first digital camera.

catching up with you dear....if I had a better camera I'd probably carry it everywhere....as it is it's a waste of effort.

What a whopping fish!

About taking our camera everywhere ... I had to laugh the other day a friend told me she was at the bathroom and was expecting a call, so she had her mobile phone in her jeans pocket and you guess the rest.
Yes, it fell in the toilet.

Great post Vee !!! Funny.. I am still in awe about the Salmon...that is like catching a medium sized dog !
Please tell me those arent stuffed portabellas in that dinner photo? if it is I must have the recipe. I never realized it but you are so right in that some things which would normally frustrate us to no end take on an almost pleasureable mood when you know there a photo op and a blog story in it!

Well done to Mike on a great catch. My other half is going to love that fish, he fishes for monster carp! Digital cameras are great too, before there invention we would end up with a dozen photos of the same fish! x
