“Does Helaine pack for you when you travel?” Ted asked me that last night. He knows how I am spoiled at home. Helaine does, but I like to think of it as a defensive move on her part to keep me from wearing what, left to my own devices, I would wear!
On my last solo trip out west I was complimented more than once on what I was wearing. That was her doing.
Today was packing day for tomorrow’s West Coast trip. I watched as Helaine paraded my wardrobe in front of me. I was there for… well I’m not sure why I was there, but I truly appreciate her help.
This is a photo trip. I’ve packed my tripod, flash with diffuser, two camera bodies, six lenses and a myriad of batteries, flash cards, chargers, etc. I wonder what percentage of what I bring I actually use? My backpack is stuffed to the gills.
It’s “June Gloom” season in Southern California. I will try my best to not let the gray sky ruin my shots.
