What's It All About, eh?

Cape Breton evokes deep memories and strong emotions for me as well as a deep appreciation for the beauty of my adopted island. My hopes are that you too might find the photos evocative - maybe a view you've not enjoyed before, or an 'Oh I've been there', or if from away that you may be encouraged to visit this fair isle so that you might come to love and breathe Cape Breton as I do. One word about place names that I use - some are completely local usage while others are from maps of Cape Breton that I've purchased over the years. I frequently post travel and other photos that are of interest to me - and hopefully you.

On the right hand side bar find my take on Single Malt whiskey - from how to best enjoy this noble drink to reviews (in a most non-professional manner) of ones that I have tried and liked - or not. Also musings, mine and others, on life in general.

Photographs are roughly 98%+ my own and copy-righted. For the occasional photo that is borrowed, credit is given where possible - recently I have started posting unusual net photographs that seem unique. Feel free to borrow any of my photos for non-commercial use, otherwise contact me. Starting late in 2013 I have tried to be consistent in identifying my photographs using ©smck on all out of camera photos I personally captured - (I often do minor computer changes such as 'crop' or 'shadow' etc but usually nothing major), and using
©norvellhimself on all photos that I have played around with in case it might not be obvious. Lately I have dropped the ©smck and have watermarked them with the blog name.

CAPOFITTO - best coffee in Philadelphia

well to be sure, taste is a democratic type of thing, open to debate whether it is coffee or single malt whisky - but after having risen early (5 pm or so) and driven maybe 60 odd miles to Philadelphia to get an expedited passport renewal and determined not to lose my 10 O'clock appointment I found myself a tidy hour and a half early - but not to worry as I can always fritter away time, and in this case it was finding the cheapest parking space while I did the wait in line opportunity and actually was finished at about 10:03 - and I took a beeline across the street to this unknown cafe where a pleasant young lady just opening about half hour early put the brew on just for me - fresh, hot, half and half yielded a nice generous cup of really good coffee - so if you're even in the neighborhood of the U.S. Customs House on Chestnut Street stop in and tell them that Norvell sent you!!
