Missed Kodak Moments

Grand Marais MN (Mostly Sunny High 73 Low 59)

Face it we all have had these moments, when the scene was framed perfectly but no camera. We were sitting at the Pie Place Cafe yesterday for breakfast and saw this great scene, two sailboats and the lighthouse.

For those keeping track we have been trying to get a really good photo of the float plane taking off with the lighthouse in the same photo. We heard the float plane start up and we thought we had a good view but when we snapped the waiter waiting on the outside tables came into view.

That got us thinking of all the times when we had good photos but did not get them. When we got home after the waiter photo another opportunity was there and Bob grabbed the camera and ran to the water and shot some photos. Turns out the knob for camera setting has moved to 'Manual' from 'Automatic' with all the jostling this sometimes happens. This is the photo we got.

Earlier in the week we were walking to breakfast, Bob's phone needed charging and we left the camera. You guessed it already the perfect float plane shot now only in our memories, here is the photo we got.

When Sandra climbed through the hole where the LP detector and we blogged about it here is the photo we got.

We had this bird we had never seen before at our bird feeder and scrambled to get a camera so we could identify it later. Here is the photo we got. 

This list could go on and on, but we still have gotten a lot of great shots like this one Bob took after he switched the camera back to 'Automatic'. We were sitting outside reading and this photo presented itself without having to move.

Another great day in Grand Marais,

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
