the big trip
On Leap Day 2008, I left my apartment in Aptos, California and bought a one-way plane ticket to New Delhi to do one of those pretentious backpacking trips. For the next 6 months, I wandered around through India into Russia and Europe and the Mediterranean, at times with company, but mostly alone. I came home with just over 12,000 photos. I was taking photos constantly, all day, every day. It was when I first realized how important photography was to me. If you want to improve your photography skills and you have six months and lots of money to burn, do the same. Here are some of my favorites.
