More from Day 5 at Kintail

Owing to the miracles of technology, I am not present but away beyond the boundary of much internet access.

Summer Camp sort of ended after Day 5 and the previous post.

Day 6 was spent quietly at our place with all of us getting ready to head to the cottage on Day 7 (today being day 9). We are at the cottage with extended family, so I don't rightly know if it's really still camp.

Whatever the case, although it is really day 9, I do have more photos from day 5 that I have pre posted for your absolute enjoyment.

Sorry that I am not in position to reciprocate comments.

Hats


Sue was given this hat by Allyson, our West Coast daughter, about 5 years ago. It fits Danica perfectly now.

I have a winter Tilley hat and a summer one. That's it, except for a few caps. He has multiple hats.

Scenes


I waded into the rocky and pebble Indian River for this. I have a bad foot and with an expensive camera in tote, I was treading very carefully. But I wanted to take this. It's not a great picture, but it was fun trying.

The dominant wildflower right now is Goldenrod.


Post Processing Play: Double Exposure


I did a better one of JJ last year in the same spot. I could have taken more care
this year, but it's something.

Double Danica

James Naismith: The Inventor of Basketball


Naismith was a Canadian and lived locally. In Doors Open a few years ago, we visited his house,
which is still in modern use. This Naismith Stone, which he and his schoolmates liked to play on,
was moved from his schoolyard to this museum. In this photo, which I thought
would work well in sepia, he peers at JJ hugging the rock.


The town of Almonte is also well-known for its Puppets Up festival,
so I was pleased to see this puppet added to the display.

The golden rod is so bright and colourful, but to me it signifies that summer is coming to an end very soon. I like the double exposures, have no idea how you do that!

Just got caught up on your last four entries. Not only is Danica a wonderful model for your pictures I see she has a flair for writing !! That is wonderful for such a youngster. My only complaint is your gloomy expression in the hat picture....

What a fun place, and you got some great photos out of it too. You all look great in hats.

Well, I guess we'll have to look up the Mill of Kintail and take out our grandchildren before I wither away from grandparent envy.

I'm really enjoying the kid fest. Thank you. Photo fest too.

That photo of Danica with her hat is just gorgeous! She looks so grown-up yet so young at the same time. My favourite!

Summer camp sure seems fun-filled your way, John. Nice wearing of hats by everyone. The double exposure shots were fabulous.
