Thanks for reading/viewing my report and thanks for the nice comments about the photos. I enjoy photography, but cruises are very frustrating for me when it comes to the end results. On a cruise I am at the mercy of their schedule and that means we are almost always on the ship at the times I could be getting better photos of the ports we were visiting. I think I did an ok job of documenting this trip but not much else. This is the reason we need to return to these places on a land vacation, so I hopefully could capture what all these places have to offer. A land vacation allows me to be in a location when I think it looks the most interesting, and cruises rarely offer me that opportunity.

About 20 minuts before that photo was taken about a dozen of these officers were coming out of the building on the left. A short time after we passed I turned around to take a photo of them and one officer loudly stated " no photos", so I turned around and continued on my way. Twenty minutes later we backtracked and came upon the officers again, but this time the officer who had scolded me was now posing for me in a silly manner. In other words he had just been messing with me the first time. I enjoyed the moment and they were fun to chat with.

Thanks again.
Thanks Rissask! British Columbia is spectacular and two of my personal favorite travel photos were taken there.

Thanks Rissask! This is why I prefer land vacations, since they allow me to pick the times and places to produce images that I can feel satisfied more with.

Thanks, and a land vacation in Nova Scotia is surely in our plans. So much more to see and photograph than you can do in the one day.
