Still another image from Powell Gardens near Kansas City
From our recent trip to Idaho.
Canoes make great photographic subjects, interesting shapes, bright colors, and nice reflections.
But really they are meant to be used. This is our family flotilla during our recent outing in Idaho.
BIL Irv really looks good by himself in the canoe. He really looks like he know what he is doing.
A little bit later grandson Mr. Beans and my sister Ellen joined them. Notice Irv’s technique of sitting in the back and letting the other two do all the work. That is how we guys do it.
And there is Sweetie and SuperPizzaBoy. I joined them a little later.
After a stern warning to SuperPizzaBoy to not overturn the canoe. Nothing tickles his funny bone than topping dad into the deep. I had the good camera with me. We paddled around a bit. Of course nobody else had a camera, so you will have to take my word for it.
Nothing like fun on the water in Idaho is there?
On our recent trip to Idaho my sister and I would grab our cameras as the sun went down and walk along with our families to find some pictures to take. I’ve learned that timing is everything at sunset. I want the deepest colors and I often find myself alone with just the mosquitoes for company. Sometimes I get a decent shot, many times I just have itches.
Late evening at a small lake near Island Park, Idaho.
If you are back from a beach vaation then W has to be Water!
We swam in it. SuperPizzaBoy is part fish I think.
We saw boats in it.
We even saw a few people even walking on water.
And then way far off we saw some ghostly sinister shapes on the water.
There were pelicans trying to catch dinner.
All sorts of foolishness was going on in the water. Not all of it can be explained. I mean I could explain it but you wouldn’t understand it. I took 616 photographs on our trip, 282 of them have a “water” tag.
The Riverwalk in San Antonio very early in the morning during a combo running, picture taking, and geocaching venture.
Nighttime on the River Walk in San Antonio last week showing the Hemisfair Tower in the background.
A couple of waterfowl landing on the Arkansas River in Tulsa last week.
Post Oak Lodge is a hilltop retreat up in the Osage Hills near Tulsa. If you ever go, take your camera.
We saw a lot of great stuff on our family vacation to Seattle last summer. We were at the Ballard Locks checking things out when a group of Standup Paddleboarders came cruising by. They made it looked very easy.
