I got up bright and early the next morning. I ordered delicious room service and stood for far too long under the steamy hot water of my over-sized tiled shower. I got dressed (barely, in a bikini, that’s hardly clothing) and climbed into the hammock on my private balcony overlooking the resort. I tried taking a picture of myself with my blackberry, buuuut, the change in position altered the angle of the hammock and I lost my balance and fell out. Sat on the cement for a second, making it look like I was concentrating on something, and made a mental note to only attempt the hammock this time of day when not many people were around.
I grabbed the G11 (probably the best point and shoot camera going) and started exploring. I didn’t know where I was going to go, or what I was going to see, so wanted something portable to document spots that I wanted to come back to later. Great little camera!
The day was beautiful. Quiet and almost eerily still in the morning, with pelicans silhouetted in the sunrise, I found myself grinning when looking down at what I was capturing on the little G11. “This is my job,” I said out loud as I took the same picture with my blackberry and sent it to friends back home.
Here are a few shots of how I saw the resort the first day.
