Anne and I have been married for coming up on 34 years. After being away in the big city or sometimes just because I feel like it, I still love to bring home a small bouquet of flowers to bring out Anne's beautiful smile and expressions of appreciation . . .

. . . and I still receive little personal messages as emails and sometimes even "love messages in the sand" from Anne.

When out with a couple of our friends enjoying ourselves around the beach last week...

Anne and I were heading up to the Bruce Peninsula on Saturday to spend a weekend with our friends. It is beautiful countryside and many opportunities struck my eye as I drove along the 2 hour trek to our destination.

The main reasons that I didn't stop to grab pictures along the way, was because it was around noon when we were traveling - as well as the roads that we were taking are narrow, hilly and difficult to pull off to the side - and our friends were expecting us to be there for...

Some of you may have already been exposed to this thread on the forum - but it gets buried quite quickly there and I thought that it would be valuable content to have in the Blog. It is a post that really shows the value of the Olympus weather sealing that is part of the E-3 and several of the lenses in their line up. I really value this as I have destroyed non-Olympus cameras and lenses in the past by working unprotected in situations like this - and ones that were far less extreme.

I know that when I post images that show my raw unprocessed "before shots" or "all 1800 images from a wedding" - I am really making myself vulnerable and exposing myself as not being nearly as good photographically as some might presume that I am. The mystique of my images is gone!

In some ways it's a little like Penn and Teller exposing the simplicity and trickery of magic acts - when what has kept people coming back to magic shows for years and years is the presumption...
