I caught this image when I was traveling in India earlier this year. One of the places I visited was Fatehpur Sikre, 1 hour out of Agra which is the home of the famous Taj Mahal. I can’t wait to travel again as I think I have made some progress in the last 9 months with my photography. Certainly if I were to visit India again (and to the same places) I htink my images will be very different now. Definately the equipment will also be different.
During that trip I brought my Canon EOS 1DIII and 40D plus the 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS and 24-70mm f/2.8. I think my back is still suffering now. If I were to do it again I’ll bring a Leica (maybe M6 if not the M8) and a collection of lenses which collectively would probably be about 1 quarter of the weight and size of the dSLR gear. Maybe I’ll bring a 5D with the 24-105mm f/4 IS to cover wide-angle and medium telephoto range.
