Travelling lesson #1, never, never go anywhere without my good ole Canon SLR. Trying to “pack light” on our trip to the Rockies, I decided that Rob could bring his SLR, and I would bring our point and shoot (which I love, and it takes fabulous pictures…but its just not the same!). I figured one of us would always have the baby, and really we shouldn’t be using Max’s head as a tripod.
The whole trip I eyed Rob’s camera. Puh-lease, I whined, can I just take one picture…15 minutes later, I was still snapping away and muttering “I wish I’d brought my camera”. I’d been on so many adventures with it that not having it felt a little bit like not bringing a passport on a world tour. Nevertheless, between stealing Rob’s Nikon, and playing with my point and shoot, I’m happy with some of our pics.
