Google recently released its list of its most popular searches during 2022, and when it comes to scenic spots in the United States there are some surprises. For starters, “scenic spots” in Google’s definition does not include iconic places like Vermont’s Technicolor White Mountains in fall or the yawning Grand Canyon in Arizona (and by the waym more about canyons later). Instead, Google users were primarily interested in where to see and photograph some of Moth

But if you’re off travelling to – and taking pictures of – interesting parts of the world, you still owe it to yourself to not leave your memories entirely to phones with all their limitations when DSLR cameras do the job so much better. And furthermore, even if you’re not a pro photographer – or even a dedicated amateur – you can still pull off some surprisingly fa

POSITIVELY My Kind of Town, Chicago Is!


Looking into the city  

Although I grew up about 40 miles southwest of a world class travel destination - that great big wonderful windy city of Chicago, I tend to take it for granted. And like most people around here, I don’t get there often enough. A fact that hits home whenever I do get there. ‘Why don’t I come here more often?’ is what I ask myself every time! 

Iconic guardians of the Art Institute  

Chicago is a city of contrasts – the old and the new, the North Shore with the South Side, Gra

Nothing throws a wet blanket on a vacation faster than dropping your phone or camera into the water.


You hear the dreaded “Ker plop” as you lean over a railing to get a better view, or you step out of taxi into a rain puddle, or worst- positioned over a toilet bowl. Whenever or however it occurs, it dampens your spirits immediately.  Your favorite piece of electronics is now a soggy mess. You can’t make phone calls or text your BFF.

Your vacation memories are now in Davey Jones’s Locker. Or are

Can photography interpret the future, can it provide Futurspectives? This is the underlying question that the Photography Festival of Rome, on display until October 24, will try to address. Bumpy ride, Maps and Legends, Unpublished-Unknown are the three main sections of the Festival, complemented by the work of Tod Papageorge on the city Rome, Giuliano Matteucci’s pictures of Africa, and a preview of “Mutations 3″, the new production by the European Month of Photography.

Photography has done a great deal to change the way we document and share our travels. Back in the 18th and 19th century, when the Grand Tour was in vogue, travel journals were all the rage. Nowadays, a picture is worth a thousand words, and it's increasingly easier to snap a shot. Film cameras are a relic of the past, decreasing even further the costs associated with photography, and nowadays any half decent mobile phone has camera capabilities, turning anyone among us into a budding photograph

Next to dropping your camera in the water, the next worst thing has to be losing your memory- that is your camera's memory. All your photos stored on one little card, GONE!


An ounce of prevention

Don't buy the biggest memory card you can afford and try to store your entire vacation on that single card. Lose or zap the card and there goes all your vacation photos.  So if you were thinking of getting one 32Gig card, buy four 8Gig. Same storage and certainly less risk.

Traveling on Three Legs…

It appears that my last post Professional Photo Tips for Travelers started some discussion on the use and types of
tripods. So for those unfamiliar with this three-legged companion I offer the following:

Tripods are used to steady a camera for a variety of reasons:


1)  Allowing for slower shutter speeds without blurring stationary objects

  1. Low light
  2. Night shots
  3. Eliminating people from a shot. They don’t stay
    in frame long enough to leave a substantial image. Although phantom blurs may be evident.

2)  Pe

Making Travel Photos Useful

I'm in the middle of a job that I have a love-hate feeling about - filing the photographs I've shot over the past few months. I spent a lot of time travelling this year, and my purchase of a little Fujifilm S1800ir?t=yukonalaskacom&l=as2&o=1&a=B0035JD0DW point-and-shoot camera back in mid-May has probably increased my always-prolific shooting a bit because it's so handy.


In any case, just since the 16th of May I've shot 8,716 images just on the Fuji (I seldom use my Canon Digital Rebel anymore). After editing, I have just under 8,000 le
