“My hustand and I cannot share a camera when we travel. This fact was established fairly early in our 15-year relationship.

Imagine my surprise when, out of the blue, my DSLR-lugging, Instagram snap-happy husband announced he was not bringing a camera on our two weeks of travel to Joshua Tree in the Mojave Desert region of southern California. Instead, he added only his sketchbook and watercolour paints to the stack of travel accessories intended for packing.”
