Took a trip to Rajasthan, India, with my family after the LONGEST time in Dec. ’12 and really, REALLY enjoyed myself. Left all the fancy photo gear at home and took just an old, mildew-y Nikon D50 with a chipped lens and my cellphone.
Felt free. Broke rules. Was shameless and shot only JPEGS in ‘P’ mode. Realized, sometimes, these gadgets know what they are doing.
Our first stop was Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. Guided tours are by cycle rickshaw only. Our guides were knowledgable, enthusiastic and made the experience thoroughly enjoyable.
