I have to admit that thus far I haven’t been putting my artistic camera foot forward, mostly my tourist eye 🙂   I have a friend with me here on the island so I am actually playing tourist guide and we’re having a great time.  But I do find that when I play tourist I do struggle with trying to get that artistic shot that I’m always working on.   So easy to just snap snap snap.   A habit that I try and break.   I am enjoying the new X100F this trip, it’s nailing the shots and colour, post processing it near nothing.   If I didn’t occasionally need a zoom my X-T1 kit would be up for sale.

A few “tourist” snaps from yesterday.  It was a beautiful day and we went Eastward to see how many of the tall ships are in (not many, most arrive today and tomorrow), visit St George’s, St David’s and Flatts.    A lovely run on the bikes.

St David’s Lighthouse, needs a new coat of paint!

St David’s taken from St David’s Battery

One of the two big guns at St David’s Battery.  Note how brown the grass is, a real shortage of rain here this year.   Ontario is getting the Bermuda share I guess.

Flatts Village.  Should shoot a video of this so people can appreciate the current running under that bridge.   The entire Herrington Sound drains in and out of this opening with the changes of the tide.

Tempting but no thanks.  Young mans game.   The tall ships are always looking for crew.

When and If.   Nice name for a boat.

Overall it was a great day!   Also introduced my friend to Bermuda Fish Chowder, which he loved once we introduced the rum and had a lovely Wahoo sandwich.    Not sure what we’re up to day but time will tell 🙂
