Once again, I traveled light during the 3-day holiday weekend.  I’m talking camera gear, not clothing.  We decided to road trip to Tahoe.  Our place was fantastic and the weather was even better; I’m convinced that Tahoe’s summers are much more reliably gorgeous than its winters.  I brought just my Panasonic GF1 with a 20mm f/1.7 prime lens, a flash, and a battery charger.  I thought that I would eventually miss not being able to zoom with a compact camera, but so far, not at all.  The 20mm lens is incredibly fast, captures great images, and I just zoom on foot!   Here are a handful of favorites.
