OK, New Plan. Part I

In GEAR, Jessie and I, Just For Fun, News & Stuff, Travel by David76 Comments

I think we can all agree that this year went a little sideways. If things had gone to plan I’d have picked Jessie up in Atlanta over a month ago, spun through the Florida Keys, lingered for three weeks, then come up the Eastern seaboard, and back into Canada. By now I’d be heading east toward the Maritimes, finally to …

Buy The Tickets.

A door in Jodhpur, photographed on my first trip to India. Images from that trip benefited me more than the best lens I could have bought or the newest camera, never mind the experience and life-long memories themselves.   I ran across a great article this morning on the Adventure Journal. Simply the premise was, “You don’t need all the …

I went to New Zealand with a hodge podge of impressions garnered from various sources: photographs, stories, and the tourism videos to …

The Nikon Post

In GEAR, Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David

I am approaching this post with trepidation knowing what kind of strange misplaced fury these issues bring up in some people. If only some people put as much energy into their creative lives, eh? But you are not those people, so that’s why I’m not keeping this to myself. You folks are friends and deserve to know the reasons for …

Shooting Wet

In GEAR, Travel, Tutorials &Technique by David24 Comments

Me. Shooting in the driving rain in Iceland. Cold. Wet. Deliriously happy. I’ve never shot in the rain, drizzle, dew, fog, and general “water coming out of the sky in every possible form” as much as I did in Iceland the last couple weeks. There were days my boots were so wet I thought they’d never recover – they were …

Within a stone’s throw of the Arctic Circle in Iceland. Photo: Dave Delnea It’s been a while since an unapologetic gear post but I need to get this out there. I love the Gitzo fleece jacket. It’s not right for a guy to love a jacket this much, much less a jacket that raises my nerd factor to 11. Hell, …
