Packing for a few days out.

  5X7 in an old Zone VI bag.  Was going to just use this for carry-on on the airplane but thinking about working out of it now.  

  Flying to France for a few days next week.  Ought to be a fun trip.  Packing the 5X7 and tripod.  Other cameras, facebooking, blogging, probably going to be minimal, though I ought to return with plenty of video and stills for future blogging.  Except for having to funnel everything through the restrictions of airline travel over the Atlantic I'm just treating this as a trip to the rosefields near town.

  Got the TSAs own regulations printed out.  We'll see if that helps.  They see sheet film less than they see guns.  Sheet film comes in boxes and is actually mentioned in their regulations as acceptable for hand checking, but the reports are that they don't know their own regulations until you produce them.

  Rubber boots.  Tripod.  The big camera backpack.  10 holders.  Spare meter.  Spare ground glass.  Probably go too much stuff as usual.

  Going to miss some of the bloom.  Lucy and I made a run to the rose fields this afternoon.  The weather has been so warmish that the blooms aren't at peak but the leaves beginning to pop open.

My old crippled pear tree.

Off the top of the truck in some chest-high weeds.

Final pack in the morning.

Have a great trip. Shoot a lot, eat a lot, and have a Calvodos.
