I almost didn’t bring my camera. I’m always conscious when I’m with my family that I’ll enter my own little photography world and won’t be present with them, and I didn’t know if I wanted the responsibility of having to worry about my equipment. So I compromised. I didn’t pull the camera out often, and I brought by old 5D camera and my cheapest lens. My cheapest lens doesn’t really translate to being a great walk around lens (as seen by the foot traffic we had to stop so I could stand back far enough in order to get a full length picture of my family), but I did what I could :).
We wanted to take a road trip out west with the kids this year, but they talked us into a cruise with Royal Carribean. It was our first cruise and it did not disappoint. Here’s a glimpse at our week!
