Photography and Travel – Part 1- Life… it’s not just a snapshot.


Can you imagine traveling without a camera? I know some  people who do. They say they upload the scenes into their brains, and that’s enough for them.  Well, maybe  my brain is too overloaded, and doesn’t have much room for  the  thousands of pictures that I would like to take. If you’re like me, then photography  is just as an important part of traveling as the suitcase or passport. If I would lose my camera, I’d buy a new one as soon as you could say – ‘take a picture’! Who needs National Geographic, when you can surf on-line through the most amazing photos your eye balls have ever seen?  When you skip over the millions of sunsets and sunrises, ( some of, which I admit, I just can’t skip over), photos of ducks, swans and reflections upon streams, lakes and polished cars, and continue on to click your way through  hundreds of streaming sunrays fighting their way  through densely grown trees ( I’m guilty of taking those too.), you will find some amazingly unique and captivating  subjects. Go ahead – be picky. There are two modern-day handicaps, though.  Those wonderful black and white snapshots of by-gone days aren’t as easy to take anymore. Those were the days when you didn’t need a signed permission allowing you to publicize a person’s face, a building or even a boat house. For that very reason, I always bring a few documents, packed in my camera bag,  for  willing subjects like: parents, street people, tall people, short people, laughing and grumpy people, and even owners of buildings, boats or cars, to sign and give me the freedom of openly displaying my work.   Life… it’s not just a snapshot. If you belong to an on-line  photography club share your link in a comment here, and you can be sure – I’l visit you there. Meanwhile, if you’re interested, you can take a look at  my most recent on-line portal at 500px.  Here’s my link:

I'm an author on the go. Give me a caravan, laptop, camera, and Hubby at my side, ( not exactly in that order), and I'm on a 'roll'.

  2. I can’t imagine travelling and not taking photos either! Your albums are beautiful, Angelika. Thanks for sharing them.


  3. Thank you so much Rajlaskshmi. I’m going to check out your blog now too. 🙂


  4. Thank you Debbie. I big part of enjoying photography is about sharing the photos. And I think anyone who delves a bit more into photography values other peoples work, all the more, as well.


  5. Your photography is amazing, I love strolling through the world with you. xoxo


  6. Thank you Sharon. Did you take pictures in Cuba? Hope you will write a blog or a series on your last trip.
