Photo Tip Friday - Keep it Dry

Photo Tip Friday - Keep it Dry

a foggy morning at the breaker wall

Today is my 27th wedding anniversary, and we were supposed to spend it at the ocean.

Watching the weather forecast all week, I knew it wasn't going to be a bright sunny day, but overcast with a 50% chance of showers in the late afternoon.

No problem, I think to myself, I always carry a plastic bag, tucked in the corner of my camera case.

Since my gear comes everywhere with me, you just never know, and I don't want it wet.

That bag will keep things dry until I can get in the car or inside out of the weather.

Well, last night the weather forecast was for rain all day.

That little bag was not going to do me any good with that kind of precipitation.

So the trip is postponed - too much water for walking humans and cameras today.


  1. Well happy anniversary!! it's raining a lot here too...gray, sleepy kind of day.

  2. Rain here too since late last night. Thunderstorms actually. I have to shut down every once in a while!!

    I also saw a little secret on my reader! Happy Anniversary Kathy! You got married in 1982 didn't you?

    So did we but in September. I hope you have a grand day.

    As for me I am stuck cleaning, watching it rain and staring at the other tube!!

    Good top today. I don;t have a plastic bag in my tote and from now on I will. I always carry mine with me everywhere too!!

    I just gave up a handbag and carry it all in my camera bag!!

    Happy Weekend Kathy!

  3. Congratulations on 27 years! Hope you have a great time and stay dry.

  4. Congratulations on 27 years, that's quite a milestone.

  5. Happy 27th and wishing for you many more happy years to count. Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Happy anniversary!

    Just catching up on your blog after a bit of an absence (during which I've barely been able to keep up my own blogs!). Glad to see you are still providing these great Friday tips. :)


  7. Hi Kathy, and congratulations, 27 years, that is lot of years. Nice photo. Anna :)

    PS I think we lost Bob for a while.

  8. hi.. just dropping by here... have a nice day!

  9. Happy Anniversary!!! I need to add a plastic bag to my camera bag. Your situation reminds me of my delima yesterday. I normally leave the house with my camera. But for some reason, I forgot it as I left the house PLUS I did not have my back up camera OR my cell phone.

    Alot of missed opportunities.

  10. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary. There is always another day you can celebrate. The storm is on it's way here sometime tomorrow as well. Our fleet week festivities with the Blue Angels were grounded due to the fog and overcast conditions.

  11. Happy anniversary buddy, love your blog
