Daily Quote: October 12, 2020

For me, the brand of the camera is not the most important thing. I think you can take good pictures with the camera on your phone.

Holidays and Celebrations:

Thanksgiving (Canada)

Columbus Day (USA)


Celebrating Thanksgiving Day in Ontario during the COVID-19 pandemic is not like a normal year. The Provincial Government is recommending that you only celebrate with your immediate household members as tighter restrictions are rumoured to be put in place during this second wave. The number of cases of COVID-19 are higher now than during the first wave, but luckily the number of deaths in Ontario are significantly lower (so far).

In typical Canadian fashion I think this recommendation is not being followed as people are doing what they believe to be the right thing and celebrating quietly with their families. The Pandemic and the restrictions that have been in place for 7 months is just too long. Many believe that we are just going to have to live with masks and a vaccine will never be the answer to stop the spread of COVID-19.

So the camera brand isn’t important. Just keep taking pictures to remember our family and everything we have to be thankful for.
