Two weeks in California

Normally I prefer to travel light. With a three-year-old that isn't quite so easy, and we ended up bringing a few extras in terms of camera gear too. Here's what we brought: Fujifilm X-T3 Fujifilm X-T20 (Helen's) Fujinon 35mm f/2 Fujinon 60mm macro Fujinon 10-24mm (thanks Jamie!) Ricoh GR3 iPhone XS (Helen's) Google Pixel 3 DJI mobile 3 gimbal (arrived just in time before we left).

Excessive? Maybe, but most of it was well used. Helen ended up shooting mostly on the iPhone, with plenty of video using the DJI mobile 3. And I mostly used the Ricoh GR3, although switching back to the X-T3 reminded me how much I do like a good viewfinder.

(A great couple of weeks, including San Francisco, Nappa, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite and Monterey. From the entire trip, only once did our daughter exclaim 'this is awesome!'. At the Avis section of the rental car pickup garage at the airport. A proud moment.)
