EST Tour / by Shaun Darwood


EST Tour

A title like “EST Tour” might make this sound way more exciting than what actually came to pass. It was time to relax, reflect and get a clearer plan for what lies ahead in 2019. I also made sure that all jeans became ‘skinny jeans’… there are only so many Chick-fil-A visits you can make before it’s too late.

My month long itinerary covered:

  • Atlanta/Decatur

  • Savannah

  • NYC/Brooklyn

  • Akron (Ohio)

Packing for regions ranging from 27c to -15c was some task, especially with only 23kgs worth of luggage. and for those who know me will agree, I don’t tend to pack light… you’ve got to have those outfit choices right? Actually, no. I did not need 5 jacket/coat options, I spent the majority of my travel time lugging-round stuff I wouldn’t even use… lesson learnt. Anyway, enough of the ramblings and onto the photography pack list some shots from the trip.


  • Canon 5D MKiii

  • Canon EF 50mm 1.4

  • Canon EF 24/105mm 4.0
