January 1, 2008, got off to a great start photographically. Because it started snowing heavily, with a high wind, I took along my best bad-weather camera: Nikon FM10 with E lenses, each covered by a UV filter. I wouldn’t have been able to keep the snow out of a TLR.
I met up with photobuddies Andy and Richard in the parking lot beside the Port Credit lighthouse and we slogged through the wind and snow taking what pictures we could. We walked over to Saddington Park and made a loop of the perimeter before calling it quits and walking back to the lighthouse, then across the street to Starbucks, which opened late on New Year’s Day.
A cup of coffee, lots of laughs, and some good frames for our efforts. I can’t think of a better way to start the New Year.
