I haven’t been writing for a long time. I’d like to say I’ve been busy but the truth is I was taking a break. My photography has taken a major reshuffle. I’ve sold off a lot of equipment to finance new ones. I was even looking into switching from Canon to Nikon but have decided against it (because I’ll still face the same issue described later). Having said that, I am still looking into radical change of gears. The equipment is just getting too heavy these days and I long for the days of being able to focus on the image rather than focussing on the equipment. The 1 D Mark III, as wonderful as it is, is just too heavy nowadays. Put a EF 24-70mm f/2.8 or the 70-200mm f/2.8 on the 1D Mark III and you have the hallmarks of a big workout. Am looking at the Leica M8 but the IR issue is still a worry for me. But still, the India pictures were generally good although I messed up a few places here and there. Where is the next destination? Not sure yet but the yearning to take pictures is still very strong in me provided I can solve this nagging heavy equipment issue.
