Until now I’d mostly been treating this blog as strictly a photo blog, without really writing any content other than adding tags to posts for ease of navigation. But I wanted to share photos from my recent travel for my job with Automattic, and my personal blog with all of my silly parenting nonsense on it seemed like a strange place to share them. So, I’m sharing them here.
We went to Playa del Carmen in Quintana Roo, Mexico. In July. In July.
It was hot, y’all. And beautiful.
I took my old Nikon D70 and shot with my little 35 mm f/2.0 the whole time. I’d like to eventually get a mirrorless camera for travel, but the old D70 did a good job and I was really struck by how much lighter it is than my D7000. Plus, I didn’t have to worry so much about it getting damaged, since it isn’t my primary camera.
Should I mention that the camera took a dip in the Mexican Caribbean and came out unscathed? Though I suppose that can be attributed to a good Lowepro camera bag.
My iPhone was not so lucky, but I digress.
I was taking two courses of antibiotics for a cut on my finger while there, and I had a pretty bad allergic reaction toward the end of the trip, so I had to come home a day early. I also felt pretty “off” the entire time, so I didn’t do as much photography as I’d originally wanted to. But I’m still happy to share this photo-essay of our trip.
I’ll get the photos from Wales in April posted soon too.
So I guess this is going to become my work-related blog too. Enjoy!
