Its funny how every holiday as far as i can remember since i bought my DSLR, would involve lugging the camera bag around and giving me aching shoulders by the end of the trip.
I must admit that with a DSLR you get moments down on pictures to revisit, but the whole point is to enjoy first hand and not from the pictures. Alot of memory is lost between the moments where you have to say "eh wait, let me take picture first".
This time around, i decided that the camera and shoulder will get to rest.
I must say holidaying without a DSLR gives you a totally different experience. I can walk down the streets without saying i need to stop to take out the camera. I don't have to find restaurants with good lighting and the need to snap away.
I don't have to cover my camera bag when the ocassional drizzle starts.
I can just blend in to the crowd that i used to be among just a few years ago.
All in all a good short deja vu trip.
Now, back to work.
