Canada/USA 1999

Canada/USA, Spring 1999.

This was my first long distance holiday on my own, so I opted for a bus tour, to see some of the country and still have someone to talk to. Including a really dreadful flight back, it was a truly memorable experience. I loved both countries visited and was impressed by the friendliness of the "natives":-) I vowed that I would return, but next time travel independently, if only to create more opportunities for photography.

I never thought that I would find anywhere that I would want to live, apart from my home town, but Waterton, Canada is a lovely little town in a glorious lake/mountain setting and I would love to live there.

I have now seen The Rocky Mountains and they are glorious. I also now know why Montana is called The Big Sky Country. The skies go on for ever and are a wondrous sight. Virginia City, Montana, is a small town which is kept as it was originally and is a photographers dream-town.

Steak, eggs and hash browns is, I think, an ideal way to breakfast and start the day.

All images were taken using 2-Leica M4.2 cameras loaded with Kodak 100 colour negative film. The resulting prints were then scanned into the computer to produce these files.
