I wonder if all photographers and photography enthusiast all face the same dilemma when they go for a big travel trip. Four years ago, I was bound for a six weeks Euro-trip and came face-to-face with that very dilemma : Which camera and what lenses to bring?
Well, I ended up bringing I think four cameras. I know, super kiasu, but I brought them with the thought of I’d rather suffer the inconvenience than to regret not having it with me. I brought a DSLR, a 35mm film camera, a medium format and the Fuji instax. Crazy eh? Definitely no regrets there, though right now, I’d like to think of myself as a matured traveler who isn’t as kiasu as before so I try to carry a maximum of 2 cameras : one digital and one film. Basically, I’ve become the Sean Penn character in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, where I enjoy and take in the moment first before I take a shot, sometimes I just shoot with my phone.
With all that said, I’d just like to share some shots I took with the 35mm camera, nothing fancy, but just honest point and shoot stuff.
Till’ the next photo essay!
