Perhaps one the greatest honour is to be asked to go camping by your girl friend. And even greater honour if it is her tent. As the week looked awesome for one last week of summer we embarked on a camping trip to the city campsite of Terrace, BC, not a far drive from where we live, for some camping in the bush, if you can call it that.
The weather was warm, and it was not raining! The was very unusual for the Summer of 2020 here along the Pacific North Coast. You can see the fall leaves falling in the above shot, yes, the trees were changing colours, and dropping.
It was not all fun and game setting up the camp site, Suzette does have a mean streak in her, you can see as she was about to hit me with the ten poles. But she quickly got over it, then was back to her happy self.
When a girl does not want her photo taken, No no,no, no…. You get this. Really that is a smile behind that hand. LOL It is when the hand turns into a fist, then you run, for your life.
Then you get to a point when you cannot get the girl out of the shot.
Finally a shot without her. These are Skeena River Rocks, on the North end of Ferry Island. I was going for the Bokeh, or blurry back ground. It worked. I think people stacking rocks seems to be an unofficial human trait of marking ones territory. It may go back to our cave dwelling era–“See, I was here, and thank you for not peeing in public spaces.” Sending a message here with these rocks–I’m an advanced human–fear me.
The Silhouette of Suzette. No she was not really changing, I asked here to pose like that for the shot. Sure she was reluctant at first, but then I explained what I was going after. A little tongue and cheek theatrics. Yup, I got them all, no more photos of the camping.
