An introduction to our group
The tour that Mary and I had booked is hosted by Mike Gulbraa of M&M tours:
Mike's guest photographer for this trip has been Neil Alexander from Manchester. Both men are professional photographers. Carol, Mary and I were the three people who made up the tour group. Carol is a serious photographer. Mary is also a very nice photographer. Both of them have nice cameras and several lenses that they can use in various situations. I am quite content with my snapshots, but I bought a 35 mm camera for the trip and a telephoto lens that I could interchange with the lens that came with it. I also brought along the camera that I am MUCH more familiar with: my iPhone. All of us learned a lot during the trip about photography. But I am afraid that I will never be as technical as any of the others. Still I LOVE my photos!
I realize that the blog posts are not organized by day as perfectly as I would have liked. This is caused by the fact that I worked on some of the posts before I left and the fact that the internet was TERRIBLE or even nonexistent in some of the locations, so I did not do the days in order. Don't forget that you need to use the "Older Posts" link to get to some of the earliest posts.
