Trip To Anegada British Virgin Islands

This photo of my son was taken, with my Nikon D60 DSLR camera, around 2011 on our trip to Anegada British Virgin Islands.  My husband, son, daughter-in-law, her mother and her cousin made.  We took a ferry from Beef Island to get to Anegada British Virgin Islands.  My son rented a pick up and were on our way to a restaurant to have lunch.  It was a beautiful fun day.

Fresh Pigeon Peas

I just found this old photo that I took in 2012 as you can see on the water mark.  Absolutely amazing photo of fresh pigeons peas. We have since stopped planting these peas because sheep would come by and eat the plants.

Flowering Basil Plant

This is a photo of my basil plant.  Around April ever year the plants flowers beautifully like this!  Absolutely awesome!!!

My New Canon EOS M100 Camera Review

I had to get a desire for a new camera for a while now and initially my intention was to get a white Canon A5100.  Why a white one?  I just found that it looked so cool even though in one video review, the reviewer said that the camera got dirty quite quickly.  

As the time grew closer when I was able to get a new camera, I did more research and found out that the Canon A5100 over heats after using it for a few minutes.  This was also confirmed by one of my fellow Trinidadian YouTubers.  So I decided to look for another camera that has the same features as the Canon A5100 - a flip up screen, compact camera, auto focuses and record videos.

I have a Nikon D60 but it does not have a video recording feature.  A popular Youtuber recommended the Canon EOS M100 camera and the reviews were generally good so I purchased a bundle from Amazon. In the bundle there was a mini tripod, camera bag, macro filters, filters, lens pen, and the box with Canon EOS M100 Camera.

In the camera box, it had a camera strap, 15-45mm lens, battery, battery charger and of course a manual.

I am very happy with my purchase.  I am already seeing the difference in my videos.  They are of better quality.  One of my subscribers even noticed the difference in quality and asked me about it.  

It has a time lapse feature which is super cool.  I have already taken a few time lapse footage and plan to take some more.  it is not as bulky as my Nikon DSLR and I can change the lens whenever I want to.  I recently traveled to Trinidad and Tobago, my home country, and put my camera in a cross body baby which is not that big.

One thing though, when I am using the flip screen to record a video of myself, I tend to look at the flip up screen instead of looking into the lens.  The end result is you will see me looking up instead of looking at the camera.  I have to work on that.  

The audio is excellent but it does not have a port for an external mic which I think is not needed.

Trellis Bay BVI After Hurricane Irma

I took this photo early in 2018 when I returned to the BVI.  Location:  Trellis Bay, Beef Island, British Virgin Islands.  To the right you can see a damaged dock where the North Sound Express ferry use to anchor their boat and pick up passengers.  

In the middle of the photo on the left,  you will see another dock what was recently  installed.  It a floating dock.  

The coconut tree is now beginning to grown back some new branches.

Amazing Clouds In The Sky

I love this photo.  I took it while I was in a private jet on my way to Piarco International airport Trinidad.  This was just a few days after hurricane Irma struck the BVI and other Caribbean Islands September 2017.  

I felt at peace just looking at these amazing clouds and knowing that everything will be alright.  I invite you to check out my video, below, in which I share how I traveled from Tortola British Virgin Islands to Trinidad and Tobago.

It's A Boy!!!

My daughter received a bouquet of flowers today with a balloon (for the birth of her first baby boy) and attached to the balloon was this ribbon!

Peace In The Sky

This is my son's photo of himself in a jet traveling to North Carolina.  Awesome photo!  It reminds of the photo (below) I took of him on our trip to Anegada, BVI in 2010.
