The event was hosted by Canon , which was promoting a line of Pixma Pro printers that produce high-resolution large prints of photos taken with digital cameras Canon cameras, they hope. These gadgets are for serious photographers who want to make a print that comes as close as possible to reproducing the actual image the photographer remembers in their minds eye. If youve ever taken a photo and been disappointed that it didnt turn out the way you remember the scene, youll understand. Canon displayed three printers at the event that drew about 300 people including, somehow, me. The printers on display were the Pixma Pro-100 that lists for $500, the Pro-10 for $700 and the Pro-1 for $1,000. This Canon printer is sick, by the way, Florence said in brief remarks to the crowd. (To the uninitiated, sick is a slang term thats high praise.) The high quality of this printer really means something. The event showcased prints from Florence, Robyn Lehr , a professional photographer whose specialties include food and still life, according to her Web site, and Erin Kunkel , whose site says she also specializes in food photographs. The three photographers were assigned to take photos in Wine Country north of San Francisco, where Florence has a winery and lives in Mill Valley. Guests at the event were taken through a series of small galleries, each one representing one of the five senses. In the gallery representing sound, for instance, visitors donned headphones with sounds of breezes flowing through a vineyard as they viewed vineyard photos. In the touch gallery, we were invited to place our hands in a tray of soil and brush from Florences vineyards.

Celebrity Solstice America’s Cup Cruise

I never got a good night’s sleep. The hard mattress phenom, however, is not unique to Celebrity. I haven’t slept comfortably on a cruise ship mattress yet. When will a cruise line offer a “real” heavenly bed option (something like Sleep Number)? The only thing that could lure me away from Celebrity is if I find a cruise line that offers a comfortable mattress. Our room attendant, Mario, kept the room refreshed, was always available and eager to assist. I asked for extra towels on the first day and he kept the room continually refreshed with towels. Mario refreshed the stateroom twice a day (after we left for lunch or an excursion in the morning) and after we left for dinner in the evening. Mario was always helpful and met every request promptly. He kept the room spotless and neat. We dined at all the restaurants on this ship–Epernay, Oceanview Cafe’, Bistro at Five, Tuscan Grille, Silk Harvest and Murano. All of the restaurants offered excellent food. The Epernay had the best grilled New York strip that I have eaten in a long, long time. It was seasoned and cooked to perfection.
