Remembering the mosaic plates and pots yesterday made me think of the boat trip we took on our sunniest day in Brugge. The only boats on the canal were the tour boats, full of tourists (no surprise there) who were pointing their cameras at anything and everything, me included. I used the scatter-gun approach, holding my camera high and pointing it in the general direction of anything which took my eye, trusting to the auto-focus to find me a good picture to keep the memory alive while I enjoyed the ride.
As I look back on the other tourists on the canal that day, some carefully trying to capture the perfect picture and others like me, hoping for a good crop later, I wonder how many other people’s photos of the canal and boats I appeared in that day.
Here’s a selection of the other people I captured enjoying the view from the water too.
