Last night we looked at all our photos from Peru. I have to say, they're pretty great. They're also a lot: 19 rolls of film and about 700 digital pics.
We were especially impressed with the quality of our digital pictures. Our digital camera is an inexpensive little model, very basic; I bought it only for blogging and emailing. But much to our pleasant surprise, the lighting, colour quality and definition of the photos were excellent.
I'm glad we're also using our conventional camera - a nice Olympus with a Vivitar wide angle/telephoto lens - especially since the little digital wasn't up to the task when it came to the Nazca lines. I can see eventually getting a higher quality digital camera, and going all digital the way most travelers have. Maybe for our next vacation.
So when are you going to see a selection of these pictures, you ask? (Yes, people have been asking.) I have June 15 writing deadlines, and the party on June 17, and my mother will be here next week. All good things, but they add up to a time crunch. Sometime this summer, we'll choose a couple of photos for each wmtc-goes-to-Peru post and update the blog. But it will have to wait.
I'm trying not to panic about the party preparations plus deadline convergence. It's not easy for me.
