We have been going to the Sandwich Fair, every year, with at most just a couple of exceptions due to SEVERE weather, for the last 22+ years. It is a big deal for us. Something we plan ahead for weeks.

Today was one of the best days in terms of weather in a few years. Just Goldilocks. Not too cold, not too hot. The sun came out. In the afternoon the light was a delight for a photographer like I who insists on just shooting in natural light WITHOUT ‘props’ and post-processing. As is my wont, I took too many pictures — 400+. Yikes. I will try and share the best ones with you. This is but a start. SMILE.

Canon’s New, Smaller Than A Phone, 4.4″ IVY Rec Miniature Camera.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From ‘shop.usa.canon.com’.


When I got an e-mail from Canon, yesterday, telling me about this miniature (too BIG to be a real ‘spy’) camera, I thought they had gone bonkers. Everybody now has a camera on hand. But, I decided, out of some respect for Canon, to check it out.

It sure is small enough. No LCD display, no viewfinder. You look through the hole and shoot! Yes, with an APP you can control it with your phone. That to I defeats the purpose. It is waterproof etc. I can see possibilities BUT it is going to be ANOTHER thing to carry — in addition to your phone.

With this it is all about size. Nothing else. It is small. That is its only virtue.

Today’s is my ‘day off’ from exercise. My routine, for decades has been 3-days on, 1-day off. Well today is that day off, though after 4-days, rather 3. Today, I will only walk around 4-miles — as opposed to my usual 7-8 miles. Yes, I am slacking. Well, so today, I didn’t go far. Also meant that I could take my ‘heavy’ Canon EOS RP rather than my phone. So, all these pictures are within 1/4 mile of our house. My own personal foliage. I, known for my generosity, am sharing it with you for FREE. Enjoy.

Foliage In Pittsfield, New Hampshire — October 11, 2019.

Pittsfield, which is not far from Concord, every year, has spectacular foliage and decent vantage points from which to take in sweeping views. Pittsfield, luckily for us, is but ‘next door’. But, once a year we also go apple picking at ‘Appleview Orchard‘ and I know, before I even get there, that I will be able to get a ton of good pictures. Yesterday was no exception though I didn’t have decent light. But, it was still OK. Enjoy.

Apple Picking 2019 At “Appleview Orchard”, Pittsfield, New Hampshire — October 11, 2019.

Going apple picking at our ‘local’ (about 7 miles away) ‘Appleview Orchard‘ is a much cherished, must-do annual ritual — which we have faithfully adhered to for at least the last 7-years. Maybe more. Just do a search on ‘Appleview‘ and you will see all the posts, with tons of pictures, from prior years. You will recognize the various points of interest and maybe even notice that my pictures have got slightly better — mainly because I have upgraded lenses and cameras over that time.

Last year we went early — in September. Mid-October, however, is our usual time. This year, for the first time, we did NOT go on a weekend. We have a busy October and Friday was a school holiday in Alton. While we knew that we would miss all the weekend activity, i.e., music, hayrides and apple fritters, we also knew it would be less crowded!

Well, full disclosure. This year, for the first time, we didn’t pick any apples. We bought some and I will confess, that as is my wont, I picked and ate one from a tree — but, I know that Dennis & Mary (the lovely owners) wouldn’t expect anything less from I. [Yes, I did have a long chat with Dennis but didn’t tell him I ate an apple! He knows. We ‘know’ each other.] SMILE. We are cool.

That, permanently borrowed apple, is ALL I ate! The days of me eating 36 apple fritters, 6 servings of apple crisp and a gallon of ice cream, ALAS, are long gone. But, Deanna and Teischan had their customary ice cream and I later found out that a whoopie pie was involved too. I just got in my steps and took pictures.

The farm looks GRAND. Gets better every year. Beautiful foliage.

They are having their ‘AppleFest’ this weekend. Please go. You will love it.

Enjoy.


From 2012. WOW. They were YOUNG
and I was HUGE
(thanks to all those apple fritters and ice cream).
