  1. Other photographers are always game. Reminds me of a scene I found in Venezia. You know how photographers always want a unique image. Well… Guess how many photographers fit on a bridge in Venezia. All of them taking the same kind of shot.

  2. It’s amazing how photography has become so accessible. Here in Maine every single person has a camera or an iPhone at work! Great idea for a post–wouldn’t you love to see a collage of their results?!

  3. You always take really good pictures of unsuspecting people

  4. I like your reflection about cameras. They do separate you from what your going through. It’s hard to tell your self STOP SHOOTING and LOOK!

  5. I can never get enough photographs of this beautiful city. When I lived there I had more company than I could count, but I loved being the tourist guide. Great memories of the twin peaks.

  6. love these…especially the road to twin peaks…you truly have captured a special moment!!

  7. Love the shots of the crawling fog! Believe it or not, we get a good amount of fog in San Diego too and I love the look and feel of it.

  8. The first quote is thought-provoking. I sometimes wonder if we photograph places we’ve been to the detriment of experiencing them…But I think there’s room for both taking the time to just “be” in a new place and documenting/recording it.

    • Hi Sherry- I agree with you. I was drawn to Sontag’s statement for the same reason. When I travel(or even just walking in familiar places), I force myself to put my camera down and just take in the surroundings–better photos come from doing that. A lot gets missed when your face is in the back of the camera body, and you’re right, it is a balance. Thanks so much for your visit and your comment.

  9. Certainly have been a tourist through your lens. Thank you for the wonderful travels. Miss you Linda

  10. I like to pretend I’m a tourist in my own city. It helps to see things differently.

  11. The SF-Twin Peaks are one of the most beautiful places in the world! ▲

  12. Great serie , especially the one of Golden Gate bridge and Fog // Maria 🙂

  13. Gorgeous! Your photos fit the quote. Love this!

  14. I like Imogen Cunningham’s words, “Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”

  15. Loved this post. Expanding, exploring, and fine tuning our humanity.

  16. Viva la VISTA! Very cool. Pers favs- the Road, the Fog, & gal in blk& white. dsup (sorry if this comes thru twice…)

  17. Cool post and photos and I like the quotes you’ve included here. My first paying photography gig was hanging a Diane Arbus photo show while at university, and I love that quote.

Love to hear what you think...
