Before I took up photography, I used my smartphone to take our vacation pictures.I hear you laughing. Furthermore, the number of pictures was limited by the phone's internal memory. Go on - laugh louder!
But things are very different now. I even have my
equipment checklist to tick against before we set out on our vacation. Micro-fibre lens cloth (checked), white-balance card (checked), lens pen (checked), spare SD cards (checked) ......
During the trip, I take down details of the places we visit just so I am able to label them for future reference. I start remembering more of where I go and what I see. Of course there were instances
when I drift off to sleep when we had boring tour directors!
