Response to Topic 171
Whenever I plan to go for a trip,the first thing comes to my mind is being sure that my camera is ready to be taken with me. Having my camera next to me is more important than taking both my clothes and my personal care items. I will be able to take photos of the places I see and the people I meet. In addition I will have the opportunity to remember all my trip even years after my vacation and have the chance to show them to my family and my friends.
Taking photographs is not only a hobby for me but it is also a necessity when there are valuable scenes to be recorded. A trip may not always mean a holiday,though. Yet,even if I do not have enough time to go out and see the historical or natural resources of the place I am going,I take photographs of trees,birds,people or even payments of the city just to remember what I have seen and to recognize what has taken my interest.
Besides,my friends or my family may want to see the photos. Therefore I will be able to show them the outlook that I have seen. So they should see the image and have an idea about the place I have been,undoubtly if I could accomplish to take good pictures that can express both my vacation and my feelings.
Along with that,I may never be sure that I can have the opportunity to see there for a second time. Hence,having the photos of the area I have been,may also help me to remember my excursion although I would not have the chance to see there again.
In conclusion,If I am preparing for a trip,I would take my camera with me for the reasons that I have mentioned above.
