This is the inside cover photo...a shot of our home from the hayfield. The shed is to the left (with my "studio" on the second story). The shed and home are connected by a screened in porch.This page was devoted to our guinea hens...raising the hens from day old chicks was quite an adventure for 2 "city folks", and a real introduction to country living. When you make a photo book, you can choose the page layout you want, with or without text that you add. I chose to just use photos with no text. I used several photo layouts...some pages with up to six photos, some pages with only one photo.This spread covered our travelling adventures throughout the summer. Top row (from left to right): me in front of scallop boats in Digby, Stonehurst, a fishing stage just outside of Blue Rocks, John talking to a tugboat captain in Lunenburg. Middle Row (l to r): chasing tall ships outside of Lunenburg, John at Beach Meadows Beach, me at Beach Meadows Beach, the boardwalk at Risser's Beach. Bottom Row (l to r): Fishing boats at Vogler's Cove, our first horse pull at Conquerall Mills, John at the Rope Loft Restaurant in Chester, buoys.
Each book had 20 pages. Some of the other page themes from John's book: Moving from Ontario to Nova Scotia, our 4 animals, our family, our visitors, apple trees, adventures at Crescent Beach, LaHave Bakery, scenery.
I think photo books might be my answer to how to weed through the thousands of photos I take each year. Digital photography really changed the way I take pictures. When I used film, I always "waited until the right moment" to take a photo and often missed some good shots. With digital photography, I tend to take too many photos! All those photos just sit on my computer. I think if I print one photo book each year, I'll print my favourite shots and have some memories on hand to refer back to now and then.
My next photo adventures: joining the local photography club. Stay tuned!
