Carry your camera--ALWAYS

Anacleto Rapping taking a photo at the Southwestern Photojournalism Conference in Fort Worth, TX. [Nikon Coolpix P7000, 28mm, ISO 1600, ƒ/2.8, 1/30]
This post has only photos from just me having my camera with me. Not my phone, but a camera with high ISO capabilities and flash if I needed it.

None of the photos are from a single assignment.

My point, is if you don't have your camera is when you will see some cool moments.

I had my gear with me when I took my daughter to the concert. I just offered to get some cool shots if for nothing more than just for me and my daughter to have.
