My most upsetting moment was dropping and breaking my camera on Day 2 of South by Southwest (SxSW). I was lost without it. What is a blogger without a camera?

That devastating lost was soothed this weekend with a trip to Blackâ€™s and the purchase of the Olympus TG-310. Being waterproof and shockproof I can now drop it in a puddle without any ill effects. And, the red matches my scooter – colour is an important consideration when choosing a camera!
Yesterday, during a brief spell of quasi spring weather, Darrell and I went on a photo wheel around our neighbourhood. Here are a few highlights:
These three trees are my favourite sign of spring in the neighbourhood. They will be loaded in pink blossoms in a few more daysâ€¦
Viewing the SkyTrain tracks from underneath is an interesting perspective, kind of artsyâ€¦
Our existing Whalley Libraryâ€¦
Our new library to open in the Fall. I canâ€™t wait!
A brightly coloured touch of springâ€¦
Darrell and I ended our pleasant photo wheel at Tim Hortonâ€™s, of courseâ€¦
Enjoying my mocha latte, I looked over at another table where a group of four had just sat down. My jaw dropped and my eyes popped out of my head. There on the table was a camera with, I swear, an 8-9 inch lens. I had instant camera envy! Sigh. One dayâ€¦maybeâ€¦ For now, I will enjoy my new red one.If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.
