7,000 miles from home is no place to realize that you’re a bad photographer with no real knowledge of photography.

Five years ago, I was flown to Seoul to cover the launch of a brand new smartphone line. Business class, on Korean Air. In my gear bag was a brand new, full-frame DSLR. It cost well over $ 1,000 and was a pretty big step up from the prosumer model I’d been using pretty well until then.

I can’t say that I’ve ever really lost my keys. I tend to put them in the same place every time I return home. And I keep them in the same spot in my bag when I travel.

Keys, they say, are pretty important.

Having written that, I now fully expect to lose my keys in  [Read More…]
