Haikus excerpted from Ambrosia, Journal of Fine Haiku.

Haiku 俳句 is a form of Japanese poetry consisting of  17 moras in three phrases, usually appearing in three lines.

Photography Tip: Often, it would be most convenient and lighten one’s load to carry one lens & camera, but when traveling it’s hard to know what you’ll need.  I bring all my lenses, some reflectors, tri-pod, light stands, and other gear in my trunk so it’s there if I need it.
