Thematic Photographic 218 - Travel Travel

Wet. For now.
New York, NY
March 2012

When I was a kid, the local television station, CFCF - now known as CTV Montreal - had a show called Travel Travel. Aside from the fact that the producers must have suffered from a terrible case of doubliosis, it was a good example of creative local programming. Each week, one of the hosts would be off to an exotic destination. Local travel agencies and related businesses/advertisers were happy, as was the crew that got to travel to every corner of the planet.

The local production gravy train is pretty much done for good these days, but it's hard to forget the impact Montreal media icons like Don McGowan, Al Dubois and Suzanne Desautels had on an entire generation of viewers. In one of those serendipitous twists of life, Suzanne co-hosts the Ric & Suzanne Show on CJAD 800 in Montreal - and every Friday at 1 p.m. I chat tech with them. Neat.

Your turn: For the next week, please share pics you've taken while travelling. That's it. They could be from halfway around the world, or a staycation in your own town. If it suggests "travel travel", we hope you'll share it. Just post it to your blog, leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it, visit other participants, repeat, and grab some friends, too. Because Thematic is more fun when you're surrounded by good folks. Still wondering how it all works? Click here and all will be explained.

I didn't do a game this week, but I went with more the kind of post everyone else usually does. Eleven years ago this month, I was in China, so I shared a few of those memories here:

Hi Carmi: I recently blogged about originating television's demise. I see you have a good grasp of history in your neighborhood too, as I do in mine back home.

They say we need it. I say who are they?!
I wish it was always beautiful weather and sunshine, though not too hot.
Your photo is depressing. Sorry, I said it. I look out my window right now and what's it doing, you ask? Raining.

Here is my travel travel, which is a slight bit cheerier.

Hands down, my favourite travel location this summer was Carmanah Valley

Okay then. Here's my project.

May I share with you what's been keeping me from reading and commenting on blogs lately?

"This Restless Life: a study of Central Coast California parks through photography, interpretive collage and stories" is a book project of which I'm in the midst. If you have the time and the inclination, would you take a look at my short video at to learn more about the project? If you like the project, would you share it with your network of friends and family? Thank you sincerely. (I have a link to the video at the top of my blog page too.)

A theme after my own heart...

Here are my travel, travel photos.

I couldn't decide which travel photos to post so I picked my favourite 'souvenirs'- my credencials from the Camino earlier this year, with all the stamps I collected.

Travelling is one of my pleasures. It's not anything that has led me (so far) to exotic places, but the joy remains.

For the first nine years up here close to our city, i used another railway station.... knew it, loved it. Now i live on the other side of our city, it's a new railway station...and for Years i loathed it! Am calming down now, getting used to it's characture and angles. It's not a beautiful station, altho' some might want to argue with me> Let's just say I haven't found that beauty ...yet!

My travels now start here

Janet said...

wow, seems lots of folks love to travel! Here's my post:

Love the rain shot, Carmi :-)

Max Sartin said...

Thanks to Alexia, I have another set for this theme.
