4 Days to Go till Egypt

Well my bags are semi packed, and I’m counting down the days with anxious anticipation. I have a hat, I have two travel towels and a baby face washer (A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch-hiker can have), sunscreen, insect repellent, various medications for upset stomachs, walking shoes, some well worn thongs, two cameras and a sense of adventure.

In the last couple of days I’ve been pouring over my itinerary and various Egypt books, and I’m so excited and so nervous at the same time. The experience should be great, but I always worry before I leave that I’ll go and only take rubbish photos. Last trip I overcompensated by taking 22 thousand, and in the end got maybe 40-50 good shots out of it, I’ve got a far shorter period of time, and being on a organised tour less time of my own for stalking the good shots. I’m also going to be “offline” for a bit over two weeks, usually this would worry me in itself, but this time round I’m not as concerned, and the Internet and everyone will still be there when I get back.

Oh and while I’m here, I have some long over due Leica images to share with you all. I’ve been slack recently and haven’t really been uploading as many images as I should (Egypt should fix that, I’ll probably have to cull my portfolio to make some room!) So my last roll of film from the Leica.

My personal favourite image.
