Road Trip Photo of the Day: PEI National Park

Aug 9, 2011 by

I love this photo for three reasons.  One, it is better than any of our wedding photos–though to be fair, our wedding photos really sucked.

Two, I took it myself.  One shot, using the timer with the camera balanced on the unmanned lifeguard stand.  I don’t have live view on my camera (and couldn’t bend in a way that allowed me to look through the viewfinder), so I had no idea how it would be framed until after it was taken.  I hit the shutter button and ran over and kissed him.  It is perfect.

And three, it proves a very important point.  Many people expressed concern for our marriage when we decided to take a month-long road trip–ourselves included.  We’ve been living in very close quarters and spending many hours together in a very small car whilst being pelted by rain on Canadian highways.  But do we still love each other?  You bet.  Even more than when we left.

    Great picture. When you get home you should have a 16×20 made, frame it and hang it in your living room.

    Wonderful shot- have a calendar made of your favorite shots from this trip- and make this one the month of your wedding anniversary.

    I agree, this one is a “framer”. Beautiful!

      Thanks! We’re currently debating where to hang it (you know, after I buy a print and a frame–we still have prints and frames from last year’s trip that are not up yet!)
