Trying to make sense of 3,000 photos…

Okay.  I’ll admit it.  I take too many photos.  And one of the problems I am having right now is how to put them into some kind of order so that I can blog about them in a way that makes sense.

Well, I haven’t figured that out yet.

But I have to admit that when we were on Prince Edward Island, I was quite taken by the fishing huts or boat houses.  I also have to admit that I’m not sure exactly what these buildings are, but since they are always located near water, I am guessing they are fishing huts or boat houses.  We saw a lot of them and I took quite a few photos of them.  And I’ve been a little bit afraid that they would get lost in the shuffle, so I am going to post a few today.





The other building that I don’t want to overlook is King George Hall that we spotted on the North Cape Drive.  I was quite taken with it and Greg was kind enough to pull over so I could get out and look at it for a while.



And lastly…at least for now…I don’t want you to miss this gorgeous church that we passed, Notre Dame du Mont Carmel.  It looks so dramatic against that vivid, stormy sky and the cemetery was perfect.



Whew!  Now, I can go to Nova Scotia with a clear conscience.  No, wait!  I still haven’t posted anything about the Bottle House.  Oh, no….

I just went back to have a look at your Prince Edward Island series. I really enjoyed the photos. A long time ago I wanted to but it seemed too difficult to reach from California. Maybe I should look into it again now that I live closer.

I feel your pain... I have noticed recently that i have years of photos that i have never posted... thousands of them ... you did a great job of picking what to post. i love them all. those little houses are fascinating. I am wondering if at one time they wee housing back in the depression years.

Love that first picture. It has a sort of wistful quality. I'm sure I've seen pictures of that amazing church somewhere recently - it is quite stunning!

I am the same as you Barb. Taking too many photos. (like about 10 of the sunrise this morning) I'm glad you chose to share the boat shacks as they are important to the fishers of PEI and the add to the landscape. The King George Hall is a beauty too. Keep them coming. Have a great day.

I end up taking way more photos than I ever actually process. I wonder sometimes what I've missed.

The huts and old buildings are great! I love the weathered "been through it all" look of them.
