Been spending the first few weeks of freedom doing all the important stuff – researching visa apps, getting reacquainted with the Marina lunch options, brushing up on my motorcycle skills, and buying things I’ll need for the trip.
Fairly high up on the shopping list was a new camera rig. I’ve largely gotten by with Blackberry and iPhone built-in cameras over the past few years, but heading out on a worldwide vagabond tour, it’s time for an upgrade. So with a new Nikon body and lens fresh out of the box, I went for a hike in Marin on my first photo expedition of the year.
A great photographer friend of mine, and world traveler in her own right, recommended I learn how to use Adobe Lightroom to edit photos. So my digital editing skills are going to be kind of learn as you go.
