Time to travel

14 June 2013

Finally, after 6 months without going anywhere (apart three days in Donegal, but they don't count right?), tomorrow I'm flying home for a few days (don't worry ladies, I'll be back on wednesday). As usual I've plenty of plans to squeeze in these few days, and as usual I will do nothing but playing with cats and dogs. But in case I'll find the energy to actually do something I need to be prepared, but because I cannot bring all my gear as on the way back I have to fly back with Ryanair (sigh!), I have to keep my backpack under 10kg, and as I have to bring my laptop (which it steals about 3kg), I have to bring what (I think) I will need for these days, so if you want to know (but I do understand that these are not information that can change your life) what I have on my bag, that's the list:

  • Canon 6D
  • Canon 17-40mm f/4 L USM
  • Canon 35mm f/1.4 L USM
  • Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM
  • Battery Charger
  • Lee Big Stopper
  • Hanhel Remote Control
  • Laptop

That's it. I could keep the 35mm at home, as that focal length is covered by the 17-40, but it's such a good lens for street photography that I just cannot bring with me, same story for the 50mm.
Do I need any telephoto? No I don't, I never use them when I go around, I love my 135mm but it's a lens that is not essential for me.
Now, tickets ready, baggages ready, tablet with a new book to read and plenty of games ready, girlfriend ready, so it's just a matter of wait for my flight tomorrow.
I'm not sure if I will be able to update the blog in the next 5 days, as playing with pets it takes a lot of resources, so if you don't see anything new in the next few days, don't worry, it's all fine, I'm in the right paws.
