Wisdom from the Road #12

On lending a hand
Offer to take somebody's photo...
and you just might win a friend!


When I visited Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in Vancouver many moons ago, I took with me a camera and a tripod, but no companion(s). When I exited the park, I had one new friend, all because I offered to take her photo (using her camera of course) and she took my photo (with my camera) and we had somebody take a photo of us. Seven years running and halfway around the world, we still keep in touch, thanks to facebook. It was a fantastic surprise when she posted that photo of us on her facebook page last year :-)

  1. I did this many moons ago too, a time when cameras where not allowed inside the National Museum. It sometimes feels right to trust complete strangers. Thanks for the tip.

  2. Nice tip! I should do this more often as I barely have any photos of myself when I travel alone. See you around!
