In our buildup to the big "see ya later", we've had some help from a number of people in providing visual representations of our plotted destinations. Many diligent people at regional tourism boards were kind enough to provide us with a wide array of stellar images, and most recently, we took in a stockpile of photos from our "featured" photographer, Joe Jansen. We have these photos featured all over our WWG sections, as well as one here on the right for good measure.
Problem is, these people have better resources than we do. Joe Jansen just went out and bought himself a 21-megapixel camera, which is appropriate for blowing up a photo to the size of an entire wall and still maintaining excellent quality. I, on the other hand, am using a 6-megapixel Nikon Coolpix camera, which fits in my pocket and takes decent photos, but not the epic shots that Joe is famous for.
We're making steps forward, though. Sarah got a hold of a miniature video camera for the real guerilla-style filming we'll inevitably need. Joey got a dashboard camera for the car to shoot during our driving time. And my roommate Ian was kind enough to gift me with a pocket-sized tripod for my Nikon, which will give me a slightly better chance at some good night shots.
That's what's on my mind. We're in the middle of a planning meeting, our bellies full of pulled pork and potato salad. If we have any breakthroughs, I'll keep you posted.
