My Sherpa
Lens: Tamron 70-200 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Edmonton 
Posted By: daacon, 08-20-2011, 02:12 PM

My wife bless her heart has on more than one occassion always offered to be my Sherpa , carrying the Tripod or a small bag , water, snacks whatever it takes. Today I went out and she wanted to come so hey might as well take the K20D and strap on the ever versitile Sigma 17-70 and have at it She does enjoy it once in a while (although made the comment today not sure she could go on a photographic trip as too much stop and go - man she should have seen us in Utah .@ Capital Reef something to shoot every 10 feet !!)

So without further ado here is the lovely and talented Mrs. Daacon










Umm what's next ?

Mrs Daacon looks as beautiful as ever Davie. We could use a Sherpa on our trip to Banff though she may out shoot us!! Cheers bud. Now my next Honey Dew... Outside windows. [damn, I should have gone with the guy who would have done the whole place for a 100.00 bucks! ] JIMBO

Lovely Sherpa Dave! Train them right and when that bag gets heavy and the sun gets hot, they have you covered!
Regards!

Mrs Rupert , an excellent Sherpa at the start of this six mile hike up over a mountain......not so much at the end.......

Great shots daacon, I'm expecting a few contributions to our "photographer and photo" thread. I'd let tessfully sherpa some of my lenses too, but she never lets me have them when I want them.

I can carry the lens, I let my wife carry the beer and sandwiches, she doesn't trust me with either. Nice to see some pretty faces on this forum, thanks for the views. Bob

Thanks Jimbo indeed would could ! Not sure I get you ending comment but it sounds like home repair which is never a good thing.

Thansk Niorm - I remember that thread I completley forgot about it ! Next time. Yes lendng is sometimes difficult without an expressed written contract of all the retractable clauses

I noticed her blouse, jeans and sweater.

My guess is she wasn't 100% sure/informed what the day's activities were going to be.

Granted, I'm not a "frilly girl", but there are few women out there, that would wear that top for a 6 mile hike up a Mountain.

C'mon, tell us...when you said you and she were "Going for a walk", how did you sell it to her?

There has to be a reason behind "not so much at the end".

I'm sensing a "Husband moment".

Actually, you are quite perceptive. We were at Lost Maples State Park and went for a casual "trail walk" and the next thing you know we are climbing a mountain. Neither of us were prepared or dressed for it, and at the end we were barely able to crawl back to my Jeep......

View from the top that day....it was worth it, but I wouldn't do it again!


Looking back up at the trail coming down....the best sight of the day!


Dave.....sorry buddy, I didn't mean to hijack your thread, drop on over to the Lounge, drinks for you and your lovely mate are on me!

Regards!
Rupert
