Nice post. I like the shot featured and the close up of the broken keys. Also some of the bridge pictures, which I presume were also taken while out and about. I have often seen things that I thought about stopping to shoot also. There is 1 particular barn I pass every day. I keep thinking, one day they are going to knock it down and I hope I have stopped to shoot it before they do! I may have to start taking mine to work, though I'll feel a bit goofy carrying it to my desk every day because I won't leave it in the hot car.

Thanks. Yeah, the bridge shots are all from just being out and about and stopping every time I cross the bridge.

The heat doesn't seem to affect the camera. As I said mine lives in my trunk. I have it in a Pelican case which keeps it a little cooler, but it is often 100+ inside the case. The camera has been there for coming up on 3 years and no ill effects. It was 100* here yesterday and when I went to take the camera out the metal on the hot shoe burned me it was so hot, but again, no apparent harm has come to the camera.

I don't carry my DSLR to most places; I only take it with me when I'm going to some place I want to shoot and know I'll be willing to be watching after my equipment (e.g. I don't carry it to school on a 'normal' day). I might just carry a P&S just in case something comes up.

I am wondering how often you guys have your camera with you? For example, I coach youth lacrosse. I am coaching tonight a place that is a half hour away and in between a bunch of lakes (a few of the 10,000 here). I am thinking about taking by camera with me in case I see some cool things to shoot. As mentioned, there are lots of lakes with foliage in the area (based off google maps) which I like to shoot.

Do you take your camera with you even though you aren't sure if you will shoot anything just in case? Or do you just remember the spot and go back for a more formal outing later?

i take mine every day to work and with all the gear minus the flash in my sig

Having 3 cameras, I was thinking when I get back I'll always have one with me at work since I'm the ship's photographer but it'll probably be my 20D or 40D. Probably 20D although my 7D will look as bad after another 4 more months out here. That'll also be my car rider with my set of kit lenses and then I'm sure I'll have the 7D ready in the F802 or Versa for other outings.

I chimed in early on to say I have my camera almost all the time but just reiterate, now that im shooting the "30 days of..." or the "31 days of..." as the case my be, I've nit let my camera out of my hands except to shower, do my day job (although its right next to me as I type) and to sleep...

-im just trying. sometimes i succeed

I usually have mine with me - though not so much in the middle of the day. But if we're "going somewhere" I've always got it.

I always have a p&s with me. But not always the SLR. I commonly carry my old Canonet GIII though for some old film fun
