Now don’t get me wrong, I’m MORE than happy with the camera lenses I currently have, but on a couple of occasions up in Churchill we parked behind what we assumed were professional photographers and oh, the lenses they did carry!
The lenses these people had strung around their necks were just the tip of the iceberg. Lying in their vehicles were more, so much more. It was one photographer per vehicle due to all this equipment!
Initially when I saw the size of these lenses I gulped, swallowing a little bit of envy but for all the fuss and bother these photographers had to go through, I much preferred our mode of travel and am MORE than happy with my photographs.
As we watched these photographers shimmy on their bellies, closer to the sleeping polar bears in order to get THE, an entire bus-load of people were thinking… “mum, how much longer?”
