Traveling The World
“I hope that I encourage others to, be bold, travel more, enjoy history, and bring about increased awareness of the need for people to be better stewards of our planet!”
Travel, Photography & New Experiences
Perhaps you are like me, filled with your own wanderlust…..
- a need to experience the unknown
- discover new cultural experiences
- to take a step back into history
- to document in photographs moments in time as I see and live them
Dreaming Of Far Off Places
I have always been a dreamer of far off places, and I know that I am not alone. Just a brief glimpse on social media sites, and anyone can see why many people list travel as a meaningful part of their life. I am fortunate to travel often, and see amazing places.
One of the most important aspects of travel is enjoying the journey, and staying safe. I have always found it helpful to do research online, discover other people’s travel stories on blogs, and social media. Once I started posting my photos and information on my trips, I started receiving lots of inquiries about my travels, asking me to share my hard-earned and proven travel expertise. Here you will find useful travel advice, and my “time capsule” photographs. Perhaps this will make your travel journeys a little easier to plan and enjoy.
As I travel often, my photography has improved over the years (OK, this could just be my opinion). I have shared my travel photos with family, friends and fairly recently social media. More and more people have encouraged me to share them online, and often asked to buy enlarged prints. I have many qualities of photographs, so some cannot be enlarged. I have used a DSLR, others a point and shoot, and many photographs are shot with an iPhone camera. Hopefully, you can see that you do not need an expensive camera to create interesting photography to share with friends, family or the world 🙂
Perhaps, I may even motivate, inspire, educate or entertain those who take the time to view my photos and read my posts.
” I do not posses the skills needed to make something out of nothing…painting, drawing sculpture or poetry, but I can work a camera. I see moments I want to freeze…colors, lights, textures that tug at me to be captured.
It is the satisfaction when I look at an image and see all the details I might have missed if I had not taken the time to slow down, compose, and savor that particular moment that give me the greatest pleasure.”
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
