“Three things are too wonderful for me; four, I do not understand”.
As I was clearing my junk, I came face-to-face with not 1, not 2, not 3,..but 4 sets of Camera Tripods. In the days before Smartphones and Selfie-Sticks, these tripods were necessary if one wished to have oneself included in a photo that one was shooting.
I disliked asking strangers around me to help me shoot a photo, because almost all of those shots failed to meet my expectations. Using a tripod, I could take my own sweet time to re-compose and re-shoot a thousand times till I was happy.
But how on earth did I ended up with 4 of them ?
Initially I had one set at home, but I kept forgetting to pack one along in my travels. So, I had to buy another one on location. Repeat.
