I was packing for a one night trip to Busan on Friday and I had a problem that I hadn’t had in a while. I couldn’t figure out what camera to take with me. To travel, or to take photos, ha. It is a difficult question as I feel like too many people can’t distinguish between the two or spend too much time doing so.

 

 

Should I take a “real” camera or just a small one? What am I going to be taking photos of? What am I going to be doing?

 

 

All okay questions.

 

 

After thinking about it for a bit I decided to take a couple of digital cameras. One bigger and one just a point and shoot. I was going to spend some time at the fish market, but I didn’t want to “photograph” it. I can’t remember how many trips I went on where I forgot that I was taking a trip. I spent the entire time looking through a viewfinder without ever actually “looking”..

 

 

It isn’t the way it should be. If you aren’t on an assignment or something taking a vacation shouldn’t be about photography. I don’t want my vacations to be anymore. You travel for yourself not for your flickr friends.

 

 

So, in the end even though I took two cameras it was the point and shoot I ended up taking some photos with. I enjoyed the food, the ocean, the place. I took photos as I felt like doing so when I felt like I wanted to. Every I had went to the Jagalchi fish market in Busan in the past I ended up with the same photos of fishermen and women selling fish.

 

 

Maybe it is weird to say, but the thing I most remember about this place is the smell. Somehow, I wanted the couple of photos I took to remind me of that. Maybe weird to most, makes sense to me.
