Well I’m still not there, but I will be on my way tomorrow. So starting from today my posts are all going to be about my trip, at least for the next 4 weeks.
There is going to be one exception, and that will be tomorrow’s Monochrome Madness. I am going to do it a day earlier and then will start my posts on my trip when I get to the USA. I will be working on MM today, and so far the entries for Urban look fantastic.
I’m a bit nervous, but overall very excited and really can’t wait to get there. I feel all over the place today. Hopefully I can get what I have to get done done.
It is all the camera gear that I’m worried about the most. The Nikon D750 arrived the other day, along with a 35mm lens. I went out yesterday and played with it. I wanted to make sure everything was good with it before I went. I was rather impressed with it.
I was checking out the Joby website, they made the gorillapod I am taking and saw they had some rather good camera straps, so I am waiting today and hoping the one that has been sent to me arrives. I think it will be perfect for the trip.
My new Lowepro Pro Rnner II bag is filling up nicely. The two Tamron lenses are already in it, along with the D750 and the 35mm lens. I’m taking my 24-70mm as well. I have also decided to take my own camera as well . There are some things that I want to do and I don’t have the cables for the D750 to do them. They haven’t taken up a lot of room in the bag, which is good.
The gorillapod and my friends travel tripod will be with my check in luggage, along with my some of my Formatt Hitech filters.
My Merrell hiking shoes have been packed and ready for some serious hiking, I don’t know if I’m ready or up for it, but I will see.

I’ve had another article published. I did one on my favourite or my go to lens, which is my Nikon 24-70mm, most definitely the lens I can’t live without.
Here is the link to the article, Writer’s Favourite Lens – Nikon 24-70 mm F2.8.
The photos today, as I said were taken with the Nikon D750 and I had the Tamron 28-300mm lens on it. They both performed rather well. So I thought I would show you a selection of the images. A friend and I did a ferry ride from Southbank to Williamstown. It takes about 55 minutes for the trip and the same back. We got off at Williamstown and had lunch there, wandered around a bit and then caught it back.
It was a great way to spend the day and I would really recommend it. The best thing was that you go to see some places that you wouldn’t normally see.
I going to leave it here now, I have to get MM done and finish packing.
