Well said Tricepilot.
I write my reports mostly for myself. I get to relive the journey.
I noticed when Antontrax broke his SLR the quality of his pics didn't decline.
I have carried a camera while fighting forest fires, thru Vietnam, on the dash of my rally car, and now on my cycle. Have that camera at the ready, not buried in luggage.
I'm still learning this digi stuff, but I can take so many pics. It's just nuts. I'm shooting hundreds a day sometimes. I'm getting good at dynamite stops and third gear take-offs.
