This week I went for a three day cycling trip to the Veluwe, an interesting area here in the Netherlands. In fact, I didn’t really feel like bringing a camera, because weight and bulk were already ‘maxed out’. I brought a tent, sleeping bag and pad and some extra clothing. Also, I find that it’s much harder to come back with interesting cycling pictures when I’m going solo. If I want to be in the picture, while cycling, it takes some planning and a (mini) tripod. Most of the time when I’m cycling, I just want to go on. Fiddling with a camera slows me down and gets me out of the flow.
But I still took the Leica T, seated in a ‘top tube bag’ within reach. Mounted on the T was the tiny 18/2.8 Elmarit. Great little lens!
I didn’t take many shots, but the shots that I took bring back the memories of the trip. And that’s all you need from a camera, don’t you?
Next time I’ll try a bit harder.
