To say I am excited today is an understatement. On Saturday I will be traveling to London for a week as a DesignHound to attend design shows, visit design showrooms and do a little antiquing with Toma Clark Haines, aka The Antiques Diva.
Besides being immersed in design, I will be a typical American tourist and plan to take in as many sights as possible. You know, the Palace, Big Ben, that huge Ferris Wheel and all the iconic tourist spots one goes to see when in London. So, obviously I will be taking photos. Lots and lots of photos. This trip is going to be different though because for the first time ever, I have decided to leave my heavy DSLR equipment at home.
Immediately after I made the decision I started having second thoughts, “maybe I should take it just in case”, but finally I decided no, I am going solo with my iPhone. I have done a lot of traveling this past year and my heavy camera and lenses have become both a burden and a security blanket. I lug it around thinking I will use it but nine times out of ten I just shoot with my iPhone.
SO…next week is a big challenge for me. I am going to practice what I have been blogging about, that the iPhone camera (in most cases) can be just as good as my heavy more professional DSLR camera.
I hope you will follow along as I post on Instagram and Facebook. You will know that all my photos are from my iPhone…for better or worse! Also, be sure to follow all the fabulous finds from our group by using the hashtag #DesignHounds
Wish me luck! I hope I don’t have regrets because who knows when I will get to London again.
