Home Again

I am home and editing photos, some of which will be up in the next few days.

Travel Jitters

Friday, July 26th, 2013

I am not a big fan of travelling. I like going to interesting places and taking photos there, but when I like being able to go home after one or two days to get back to my routine. One of my friends has had to deal with me after being away from home for more than a few days and it’s never pretty. So when I say that I am travelling to Africa to spend almost two weeks travelling around the continent in the wild, I say it with a mixture of excitement and dread.

I am excited to think about what kind of landscapes, people and animals I’m going to come across, and what kin of photographs I am going to come home with. I am, however, dreading the inevitable homesickness that is going to come along with being so far away from home.

I’m going to be passing through South Africa, Nairobi, Kenya, and Zimbabwe, which covers some amazing scenery and, if we’re lucky, I will be there in time to see the bird migration.

I’m travelling fairly light in terms of photo gear: My 500D with 24-70mm f/2.8 and a Samyang 14mm f/2.8, My C-POL and ND8 filters, my laptop, and my trusty Yashica Electro 35 with a dozen rolls of film.

I am not sure what internet arrangements will be available during the trip, but assuming I come across a decent connection I will be updating Pants-Man with posts (hopefully) full of photos as I go.

This is only a quick post while I am charging my laptop up, but hopefully I will be updating the page here again soon.
