I was tagged to do this “HostelBookers: 7 Super Shots” post by Alex from Virtual Wayfarer and thought it was a great way to show off some of my photography that I don’t share enough of here on Travel Yourself. I hope you enjoy my 7 photos! :)
A photo that…takes my breath away
Located in southern Iceland the Strokkur Geyser pictured here goes off approximately every 6-8minutes and is quite the site. Lets just say it took a couple tries to get this shot. To see it in action check out my Iceland video HERE.
A photo that…makes me laugh or smile
Is it wrong that I put up a photo of myself for this one? It is funny though right? haha Pretending to be as Parisian as possible in front of the Eiffel Tower. To see me in action check out my Paris in a Minute Video.
A photo that…makes me dream
A photo that…makes me think
In November 2011 I visited Berlin and toured around the Jewish Holocaust Memorial. Not only could you walk around in this labyrinth of cement blocks varying in sizes but underground in what use to be a bunker you can tour an exhibit all about the victims who lost their lives, their stories and stories of the few who survived as well. Definitely something to check out if you ever visit Berlin.
A photo that…makes my mouth water
Papas arrugadas also known as Canary Island wrinkly potatoes. These tiny potatoes are boiled until dry in sea salt and are honestly the best potatoes I have ever eaten.A beef medallion from the Icon Grill in Seattle, Washington #MEGANOMS I enjoyed this beauty while on a Gourmet Food Tour with Savor Seattle Food Tours.
It’s a toss up for this one especially since I just started my new food and travel blog www.TheTasteOfTravel.com. I have taken a lot of delicious photos in my life but these two are a couple of the most recent and trust me the photos don’t do them justice.
A photo that…tells a story
There are multiple stories going on in this photograph from Fiji of a bus full of people making the long trek home at the end of the day. I think I like this photo the most because it reminds me of one of my favorite photographers Robert Frank and his similar photo from his “The Americans” series.
A photo that…I am most proud of (aka my worthy of National Geographic shot)
This was a hard one to choose a photo, I have so many that I love! If only these poor Polar Bears were actually out in the wild and not in the Copenhagen Zoo. Poor guys, but they are still beautiful none the less.
Thanks again to Alex for tagging me in this series.
I now need to choose 5 people to contribute.
