Just got back from Sicily to find that I have 102 images! YAY!! also few more sales - yay! a sweet comforter for the fact that my camera broke on the very first day of my holiday!

There I was thinking of shots, planning stock shots etc when it just dies .. day one - evening - dead .. hmm no fun! I had my little trusty handy cam though and that's where I got to thinking about how much fun a holiday can actually be when you really do go back to basics .. I took Loads of snaps on day 1 with my canon - thought about stock a lot and technique - also had quite a moan and a grumble till the next day .. for the rest of the holiday it's a load of my son, my husband, goofy faces, food, and the stunning surroundings of what Sicily has to offer! :))

It was great!! _ not to mention my husband surely loved the fact that i was not stopping him every 5 steps for a minute to get the perfect shot heehee - it was snap and go :)

Splendid photos!
My wife is also not happy to stop every few steps - neither my son. But this is life ...
At least I carry my equipment by myself! A little bit of sports helps.

My husband not only hates stopping every 5 steps but he also have to carry some of my equipment. Imagine his face :)))) He would really enjoy a vacation without a camera, but I wouldn't :))))

LOL, watch it one day your husband might hide the cam...(Joking)
Nice shots.
Cheers ;)

I know what you mean, it must be really irritating for my family sometimes when we go on a family outing and they have to keep waiting for me to take a photo. Mind you it works both ways, we have to make 1000 toilet and eating stops for the kids. Poor hubby, he has to put up with so much. LOL ;0))
