Chromatic photographic self-portrait
It's always fascinating to look at people's travel photos. Different people can visit the same places, yet they come away with completely different perspectives and experiences.
In my case, I've taken to carrying the little digital camera with me whenever I hit the road. When I'm away for work - as it is on this week's trip to Phoenix - I am often challenged to find time to get out and shoot. The schedule is so packed that I'm lucky if I can grab a few minutes during daylight.
So to ensure I come home with something, I often play photographic games when things are quieter. Morning and evening routines make for fun camera play, especially when the good folks at the hotel had the foresight to install lots of marble and chrome. How did they know I love to shoot these surfaces? Bless them.
Back soon. Will have more to share in the days ahead. For now, I can't wait to get home: I miss my real world and the important people within it.
Your turn: We all know how boring the same old travel photos can be. How do you change perspective and keep it interesting?
