On vacation or not, there are times when trying to get the perfect shot gets in the way of experiencing what it is you're trying to capture. It's something I try to remember. Decades ago as a kid, I asked for a camera for Christmas. My Mom bought me a Polaroid "One-Step" and my family gave me a bunch of packs of film. It wasn't exactly what I had in mind but I proceeded to take a ton of photos. My mother was dismayed that none of them were of people,- all nature shots or of things I was interested in. Later in life I figured out that as cool as that snowstorm was, there are millions of pictures of snowy landscapes out there, but only so many of my family and friends. So now I try to get pictures of people enjoying the snowy landscape. ;-) Anyway, vacation pictures serve a purpose. They let you enjoy the vacation again years later. You get to remember that trip to the secluded Island in the Caribbean all while forgetting how long it took the get there, the horrible wind the blew that canopy off the small boat and the relentless sun that proceeded to burn us all to a crisp on the way back.
