In our latest Ten on Tuesday Photo Essay, we honor local shops from around the world

Like most bicycle travelers, we end up stopping at local shops several times a day.  Whether it’s to quench our thirst with an ice cold coke, stock up on snacks or just hang out with the locals, shops end up being a focal point in each country we pass.

Ten on Tuesday: Shops around the World

    I really enjoy reading your stories and looking at your photos. I’m curious about the kind of equipment you have on the road? My husband and I are planning to travel by bike next year and we are searching the best equipment for photography on the road. I do have a big SLR (Canon EOS 7D) but I am a bit concerned about the weight and it’s an expensive piece of equipment. So would it be better to look for a smaller and cheaper camera?

    We have an SLR and have recently acquired a small Kodak easy share point and shoot.

    I take a lot more pictures now that I have the tiny Kodak. It’s a lot less intrusive when trying to take pictures in markets and locals seem much less wary of it.

    Of course the Kodak is low to react and the pictures certainly aren’t the same quality. Plus the Kodak is next to useless for an action photos.

    I’d take the SLR plus a cheap point and shoot.
