Screen blindness has been a problem with my camera. On a sunny day, I cannot see what I am shooting. One solution, short of buying a camera with a viewfinder, is buying a sunshade for it.
While it was difficult to find, we eventually ordered a sunshade on-line, from a Canadian company which shipped it from China. It was ordered on March 5th, shipped on March 7th and the projected arrival date was April 19th. My husband, Rick and I thought it was on a slow boat from China.
The weeks passed. Finally, on the 19th, the sunshade was in the mailbox when we arrived home. And surprise! It was shipped by air. It must have been in a warehouse waiting its turn for transport.
Regardless, it reminded us of the old song On A Slow Boat To China. Written by Frank Loesser, it was published in 1948.
I love this version by Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians. It highlights the big band era, some of the music my parents would have listened and danced to during their courtship and early married life. Enjoy!
