Travel Photography - Epiphany
I have been shooting photos from many years, starting originally with film and now digital. I own a collection of cameras that would put me into the pro category. I've hauled many pounds of gear on trains and ships when I traveled, capturing some great shots. On recent trips I have relied more and more on my point and shoot that I carry in a small case on my belt. It is always handy and is very stealth. In many situations you don't want to draw attention to your expensive gear. A few weeks before this cruise I dropped it and the screen shattered. I knew I needed a replacement so I searched for "travel cameras." I selected the Panasonic Lumix ZS 25 on sale at Costco for under $200. I brought it on board and loved it instantly. It is smarter and quicker than me, making exposure decisions in a heart beat. I had a photo epiphany of sorts, you don't have to carry many pounds of camera stuff to get great pictures. My aching back thanks you! Another escape, I no longer need to be a pack mule.
We are up early to photograph the sunrise and eat some breakfast.
