I have been waiting on the date of Rod’s Brazil trip to set my travel dates. Finally the Brazilian govt has allowed him a visa. I am going the day after mother’s day. I don’t know how long I will be and where the maps will take me. My plans are to update this blog each night with the adventures of the day. Could be boring or could be interesting. I just hope it is Swine flu and mugging free. I will have my phone and yes, Bonnie I will charge the batteries.
This week we had Andrew Rush ( andrewrush.com) a photojournalist from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette do a feature of Rod & I for the Coalition for Christian Outreach which we support. I was thrilled when he came in with the same model camera as mine. Although I have a 40D Cannon and his was a 5D (a price tag different of $1,000.) He was a quiet guy but that didn’t stop me from being a full fledged dork and asking a million questions. I realized afterwards that I must have driven the poor man nuts. A few things I took reassurance from: he never uses a tripod (unless night), he never uses a light meter and he uses AF. He did help me set up the studio lights. I felt like a 3 yrs old showing my scribbles to Monet. I will never have the knowledge of a 4 yr degree and 10 years of field work. I is what I is!
