What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear about Madagascar? Maybe the animations, but for me it was totally different!
The first thing people think of when they hear the word "cruise" is the stereotypical image of eating your weight in saturated fat, spending your nights singing your heart out to Motown beats in a room where the age range is older than the fine wines found at dinner. From experiencing many different styles of holidays, there is something oddly unsettling yet riveting knowing you’re living on the ocean for a week.
Looking through my photos taken over the last year or so, reminds me what a great and varied place the UK is for the photographer. I have photographed a wide range of subjects all over the country, and I am pleased to show you a small selection of my favourites, stretching from South West Wales, across to Essex and East Anglia, in the east of England, and up to Northumberland in the North East of England.
Hi there! Welcome to my Vancouver photo guide! :)
Many experienced photographers will tell you that capturing natural wonders and various travel sights is like capturing the soul of that specific place, moment, or action. So, it is no wonder that many inexperienced individuals ended up being majestic travel influencers. Traveling is generally a very lucrative job, mainly because in today's world when social media are an extremely powerful tool, you have a chance to show off your work to a wider audience. Everybody started from scratch, and build them way up to popularity. Becoming a better visual storyteller only takes time and effort (only), and for you to follow some of these tips.
On Tuesday afternoon, Mitchell called me from work at 1 PM. In the duration of our ten-minute phone call we decided when he got home we would pack up, load the car, and hit the road. A last minute road trip. My favourite kind of road trip, of course! We got off the phone at 1:10 and planned to leave at 2:30—meaning I had exactly 80 minutes to get all the camping equipment together, go buy food for the trip, pack up the car, and notify our friends and family that we wouldn't have service for the next little while. Our plan: The west coast!
There is a corner of Hull like no other. We call it the Avenues, and it is a very special place, a warren of streets where I can lose myself. Urban, Victorian, Bohemian. A postcode that means the world. A corner of the Land of Green Ginger that is forever Saturday morning. It is where Yorkshire meets the world, vibrant, youthful and diverse. The university fuels it with energy, and the nineteenth century tempers the air, a riot of red brick and yellow, of stone and wood. As the name hints, it is an area of grid-like avenues, an area where symmetry rules. Yet each villa is unique, grand and overly mature; hints of genteel decay, overgrown in parts, bald in others. There is a smell I associate with the area, a doughy scent from the bread factory and a mulchy tang of dampness, of freshly roasted coffee and pancakes.
I moved to Vancouver, BC in the fall of 2016, but I still feel like such a tourist. BC is an exciting place to explore, if you take the time to do it. The mountains, city, and ocean make for a beautiful place to live. The problem, however, is that a lot of the people who live here do not actually tour their own hometown!
Take a look into the photo-journal of Daron Bandeira as he ventures into Bali – the greatest destination on Earth.
This morning was our first sighting of land. After sleeping in and having breakfast in the Garden Cafe, we went out on deck to get our first glimpse of Bermuda. Since we would not be able to get off the ship until one o’clock, Mom and I looked for something to do until then. We decided to go to the Aqua Dining Room for an art auction. Since we were there early, we checked out the art and sipped on mimosa. We did not bid on anything during the auction because most of the lots were too expensive, but there plenty of pieces that we liked. My favorites were the paintings by an artist named Linda Le Kinff, whose elongated forms and bright, vivid colors were compared to Matisse and Modigliani. For attending the auction, we received a free print.
The room was medium size with an average layout but this was probably one of the smaller suites I've stayed in. The overall appearance is rather dated. I felt like I was stepping into the late 70s or early 80s.
I would not necessarily call myself a superstitious person, but I have some faith in good and bad omens, mostly because they tend to be self-fulfilling. A good or bad omen can affect your mood for the rest of the day.
