Traveling with a camera

Traveling the world with a camera and other thoughts on photography.

Travel Photography

Since 2005 I have had the wonderful opportunity to do more traveling around the world than I ever thought I would. My travels have taken me to Mexico and Spain, India and Nepal, and many trips to Greece, Italy and Turkey. If I have learned anything from these trips it is that your camera can both help you see the world you are experiencing and it sometimes gets in the way. There are times that I will put the camera down and just take the photos with my eyes—just stand back and take it all. Those images are written strongly into my mind and will be there for when I want to call them up. Those I cannot share so instead I have put in collections of images from the areas that I have traveled to.

 

Greece has to be one of my favorite places to take my camera. Greece is what you see in all the photos—blue-blue seas, blue topped buidlings, towns on the edges of cliffs, rocks, blue skies, and water everywhere but it is so much more. I have traveled to Greece since 2008 making nine trips in spring, fall and summer. The Pellopenese, Athens, Delphi, Crete, Santorini, and Samos comprise the areas that I have spent the majority of my time in Greece. I can't say there has been a single day while I have been in Greece when there was not a moment to capture an image. Subject matter in Greece is everywhere—large and small from the sky down to the water and under the water. The light in Greece is not like what I have experienced anywhere else in the world. It is at piercing, sharp, and clear bringing everything it touches into sharp focus. It is hot and will push you right down to the ground if you are not prepared for it.
