America by Bicycle
Aug 29, 2011

Jeff Arnim used his Nikon D40 with an 18-55 kit lens on a journey of enlightenment riding his bicycle across the USA. It is one of the best travel stories I have read and the pictures are a slice of real America.

Jeff's story with his photos is posted for your viewing pleasure on the bicycle touring website Crazyguyonabike:

His story is called "Between the Ends of America".

It's a good argument for using a DSLR instead of a compact camera for travel photography, even if all you carry is the kit lens.

Due to the luggage restrictions on a bicycle, taking good pictures on a bicycle vacation is a logistical challenge far more difficult than that of an African safari. My own bicycle trip photos are mostly awful but I wrote up a little blurb on the Crazyguyonabike web site comparing a Panasonic LX3 and a Canon 5D:
