Home from Dominican Republic, a couple things.
I think I spent more time in transit on this assignment than I did in country, but the Dominican Republic was wonderful, if very brief. As always the people at World Vision amaze me with their passion, dedication, and perseverance in the face of some really hard realities.
LowePro has sent me one of their new Vertex 200 bags and I will be reviewing it when I have a chance – it’s the bag I have chosen for my trip to Tunisia. I may still be deluding myself but I want to do this trip lighter than any of the trips I have done since Paris 3 years ago. Anyone who has travelled with me knows I do not travel light. So much gear and stuff for possible contingencies – I’m very, very well prepared, but it comes at a price.
I am expecting some gear from Upstrap soon as well and will be doing a review on the main pieces of their product line. I used their straps on this last assignment and absolutely love them. I’ll save the details for a more complete review – but in a nutshell, these are the last straps you’ll need to buy. You may have to replace them one day but you’ll never look to another kind of strap again if you go with UpStraps.
A reminder to those who expressed interest in the first copies of my limited edition book, The Pixelated Image – please get your funds in. The book will not be ordered for you until funds are in – no funds, no book, and you’ll lose your number to someone else. Pretty please.
Finally, for those of you that travel, Think Tank Photo has posted two great articles about travel as a photographer in the high-security, low-frills, lousy service, airline age. Two downloadable PDFs – check them out HERE
