Ask any photographer (or wannabe photographer) and they’ll tell you there’s something they just can’t photograph. Some don’t like doing portraits, some still-life, some don’t like using Photoshop. With me it’s landscapes. I just can’t do it well enough to satisfy myself. I’m not being modest – I actually struggle to see the bigger picture (if you know what I mean)
But when we went to the Grand Canyon it was gie near impossible (Good Scottish word there – gie) to photograph what I wanted. The word ‘awesome’ is totally overused, but in this case it was fully warranted. From the helicopter ride there, over the desert, the Hoover Dam, landing on the canyon floor to the flight back up the Las Vegas Strip – the whole day was wonderful. Oh and I forgot to mention the champagne lunch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon!
When I was a wee girl I used to think that by the time I was old everyone would be travelling by helicopter and cars would be obsolete. Why hasn’t this happened? I would travel everywhere by helicopter if I could. I absolutely loved it. When I’m rich I’m going to buy a helicopter and use it to go grocery shopping.
