I’ve been thinking about gear and all that stuff for some time and forgot one tiny detail when it comes to hobby photography. Diesel/petrol! The stations in the UK are not the cheapest and sometimes I just wish I was living in the US and could afford to be driving around in a nice big pickup truck and not to be worried about the fuelling costs.
However, here in the UK things are a bit on the expensive side and we I usually pay £56 for 45 litres of diesel. That’s some 11 gallons for the US/UK. Ever since I started the digital shooting I’ve probably covered 2,000 miles in a month looking for some nice landscape shots and to photograph events I wanted to shoot and obviously improve. This came a bit as a surprise to me but I learned to plan things a bit better and am planning more carefully unless someone decides to sponsor me 😉
Until then it’s plan, drive and shoot and hope for the best. And to shoot in manual 99% of the time.
