Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

Four Days Before Pat and I Leave For the Camino de Santiago.

Nicole took this iPhone photo of Pat and me this morning while on the BigHorn Overlook Trail in Cathedral City, CA. We noticed the arrows. Wow, we’ll be following arrows all along our walk on the Camino de Santiago. Let’s take a pic! Thursday Pat and I board a flight headed to Spain to walk the Ancient pilgrimage path also known as Camino Frances on the Camino de Santiago. This walk of 490 miles begins at St. Jean Pied De Port, France, quickly but not easily, crosses into Spain (this first day is listed as the most arduous part of the walk), and is waymarked all the way by yellow arrows – flechas amarillos, guiding we peligrinos, east to west across the northern part of Spain to Santiago de Compostela.

Are we excited about this 45 day adventure ahead of us. Yessirreeee! Stay tuned. I’m carrying an extra 10 pounds of camera related gear (including a small tripod), iPhone (battery charger), iPad, and all the related gear like surge protectors, batteries, camera cards, and cords. So much for keeping it simple. But……..my backpack is the lightest it has ever been on any backpack and we’ll be doing less daily mileage. And…..I will have all my photography gear with me!!! I’m shooting with, the much lighter than my Canon cameras, a Fujifilm XT-1, a wireless camera that I believe takes great photos. I’m really excited about the photography ops along this new and very unfamiliar adventure.
