It's morning of the last day and I've just been packing up to leave. …In packing up I'm really feeling how much dust and grit there is on all my gear. …There's no way around that out here. Even if you are not camping, particularly …when it's windy like this, there's just so much stuff flying around shooting in …sand dunes, everything is going to get sandy. …It's very easy to get uptight about that and to a degree there's a good reason to …get uptight about it. I'm noticing that the zoom ring on one of …my lenses is grinding. I actually just had another lens that I …didn't bring with me because it was broken and I had to send it in to Canada …and they sent back saying well your zoom ring is grinding and we're going to have …to clean that and the whole thing is going to cost $400.…
So sand and, and grit can be a problem. you can try to minimize it by making sure …that you keep your gear in a nice tight bag anytime you're not using it. …You can think about trying to not do la-, lens changes in the middle of a dune field. …
