There are a few problems with taking a vacation when you are a blogger with a camera:
1. You want to blog about it and post photos so your readers know you haven't dropped off the face of the earth, but don't want to advertise that you are not at home. So you have to wait until you return home.
2. When you go somewhere REALLY fun and different and full of photo-ops, you take a lot of photos. Like a couple of thousand photos. Sometimes more than 500 photos in just a single day. That's a lot of photos.
3. Taking that many photos is painful - holding the weight of the camera, thumb and index finger spread apart, click, click, clicking a mile a minute causes what I am now officially naming "Shutterbug's Syndrome" - a hand and forearm and shoulder so sore it is hard to lift a
wine glass water bottle, let alone spend hours on a computer editing and sorting a couple of thousand photos.
Stay tuned for more to come (along with some RASTA animal sanctuary ones I took just before leaving on vacation and haven't yet posted!).
