General Guinness

I threw some water and snacks into a Playmate cooler and planted a chair in the water last Friday. I photographed boaters against blinding light with my old Canon t3i knowing I had a new camera on the way (I've already returned it). These pictures remind me of when you lose weight and just your socks fit better. I'll take the win but, meh.

  1. ...oh, not the kind of playmate I was thinking of. What great pictures! Few things beat an Irish drinking song.

    1. Haaa, cooler, cooler I said, Tom. I am with you on that, not much beats an Irish drinking song any time of the year. In honor of the Guinness shorts doncha know.

  2. Great progression in your images, and your last one is my favorite. Wow, professional enough for a commercial! A new camera is always inspirational:) Many thanks for your great share for All Seasons!
    Am glad you told you had trouble to find the comments. Please, let me know where (location)the comments are located (since I can't see that), so I can add it for a few weeks in my post. I'll come back later to see what you wrote, thanks so much!

    1. Thanks, J., I think these are almost good, but not quite. I liked the imagery though so put them up anyway. Plus I loved his Guinness shorts. I returned the new camera the day after I got it, these are taken with the old one.
      The comments are at the bottom of your post under the FB, Linked In, Tumbler buttons; Related; then tags. I have to click on the left column or the red lines box icon in the top right, right column to find comments, otherwise it's just the post and older post links. I wonder if anyone else had the same problem.

    1. Thanks. I think the drops are too blurred and the canoe is kind of out of focus, but I like the idea of what it could have been.

  7. Great shots - sitting in or by water is a favorite past time.

    1. I like to do both, as long as it's relatively clean water (so that let's the lake down the block out).

    1. I've discovered I'm better at sitting still when it comes to photos rahter than running around hoping for good action shots.

  13. Beautiful pictures makes me wish I could get out into the water.
    At least you had a Camera to take back. I miss mine as my husband
    lost it and I don't think I will ever get another one.

    1. Ohhhh nooooo, you have to get another one, Glenda! There are so many nice entry level cameras and refurbished and International versions and used. If you lived close I'd walk you over one of my old ones. If nothing else, use your phone my friend.

  14. Thank you Jeanna for the explanation of the comments. I wonder if it's the ones who have the blogspot-url. One blogger with a straight .com told me "on the bottom of the column on the right. I'll add yours, if it still does not appear. Thanks again, Friend:)

  15. J., do you mean you can't see the comments on your WP blog?

  16. That canoe looks to be light as a feather! Don't get into Wisconsin very often but plan to be at Lake Geneva for the 4th of July fireworks show.

  19. Jo Jeanna, you must have looked a right nutter sat in the water on a chair (my kind of person!). I do like your photos especially the drops of water falling from the boat on the second one down. How come you ended up returning your new camera? Better the devil you know?
