What Are You Doing?

David, David. What are you doing? Why did you take that “stunning scenery” and turn it into cartoons!?

Ok, ok. I hear you. So I… uh… have a confession…

There we were wandering on the Wanderweg, hiking along the trail, under the watchful gaze of the forest and the mountains. We were doing our best to keep up with Jerry and Gabrielle, but this was… Switzerland, and we were… in the Alps. So I was… taking pictures: stopping, focusing, framing and taking pictures of all that “stunning scenery”. 

I did it all for you. So I could share it with you later. Really, for you.

But here’s the thing of it. Somehow at some point during that hike, my camera got into cartoon mode, and without knowing it, each time I stopped and focused and framed all that “stunning scenery”, I was taking a cartoon. And there’s no way to fix them. They’re cartoons forever, and there’s no fixing it. You can see the full photos here, where they’re still cartoons!

Imagine my horror upon reviewing the pictures later. (I think it might have actually been days later.) 

Fortunately, there was a hike down the mountain, back from Sardonahütte the next day. And fortunately, I stopped and focused and framed on the way down.

So… there you have it.

I’m so sorry for your loss.

Well, whatcha gonna do?
