    A couple weeks ago, I went to New Mexico with my dad and brother for an extended weekend where we rode in a balloon at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and did some additional photography in and around Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

    It was wonderful spending the time with my dad and older brother. Doing photography without my wife and kids rushing me was great too .

    A few photos taken with Leica M240, Zeiss ZM 18/3.5, Leica 35/1.4 ASPH II, Leica 50/1.4 ASPH, and Leica 90/2.5:

    Very nice Amin! My wife loves hot air balloons and we have a large balloon festival here in Hunterdon county NJ as well. Someday I'd love to take her to the NM festival too.

    On a tangentially related topic... your kit looks remarkably similar to what I've been thinking about using for travel eventually (I'm finding myself slowly working my way into Leica somehow or another). How did you find traveling with that set of focal lengths - did you feel yourself lacking anything at the wide or tele ends?

    I agree; you need an insurance policy!

    Thanks, Jay. I didn't feel the need for wider. Occasionally longer would have been nice, but I felt pretty well covered. Honestly, I think a V-LUX would have been a great one-camera solution for this trip!
