I was doing dishes and staring forlornly outside at the grey, wet day when a spot of colour caught my eye. We had long forgotten that we had once planted clematises along this wall. Over the years this one has survived. Today it brightened my day with it bedraggled appearance.

I want to share a letter to the editor from this month's issue. It quite cracked me up as I could so identify with Mr. Fairbrother.
On a family trip to Kananaskis, Alberta, we walked through the provincial park, and the beauty was astounding. I didn't realize it, but I kept getting ahead of my family, eager to see what lay beyond the next bend. I was sseing it not as a tourist, but as a photographer, in highlights and shadows, compositions and lines. Lost in my own world behind the viewfinder, I was exhilarated. Suddenly, my wife remarked that I must be in a bad mood because I was ignoring her and my two young boys.
Reflecting on this, I recalled other family outings where my desire to photograph what we were experiencing superseded my ability to enjoy it as a family. Other than leaving the camera behind, what can I do?
