I got my 2GB CF card yesterday, and today I’m going out to hunt for a lightweight traveling tripod. I definitely want to bring one with me, but mine is way too heavy and also semi-broken. I’ve decided on what lenses to bring. This will probably become my standard travel photography kit: 70-200mm, 50mm, 12-24mm, 105mm Macro. That’s more than I need, but I’ll feel comfortable having them all available.
I read an inspirational story in GQ yesterday about a couple who was walking across Provence in France on the GR foot trails that connect all the little villages. The photos were amazing. I’d love to do that some day. I need to find a backpack that can carry clothes and camera gear too. Right now my camera bag only holds camera stuff, so it’s not too convenient for backpacking. Maybe I’ll look for something like that today too. It would be great to be able to leave my suitcase at home for this trip to France.
