Can we share some pictures from trips?
Just got back from China and decided to take a picture of this amazing place I ate at. It wasn't for three weeks when I got home that I saw this picture and realized that everyone was staring at me.
Not OP but this is also from China (Shanghai), first thing I saw when I got out the taxi beside my hotel
Mountains inbetween Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng, in Laos
Paratrooper barracks near the Panamanian Airborne school after we attacked and killed most of them. That's me on the left.
Big hole in that wall, huh? I was proud of that shot.
River mouth in Sillamae, Estonia.
The nice green hill in the distance is actually a buried fuckhuge nuclear waste dumping ground.
Good idea OP. Been doing quite a bit of travelling recently and happy to share some snaps. I am no photogpraher, so if they are shit, I apologise.
First up is sunset in Pokhara, Nepal.
Also Nepal, me and my trusty seed.
These kids started off as cute, then got annoying. Finally we shooed them away, only to realise an hour down the road that they had nicked our map.
(if you look closely, you can even see the little fucker holding it n this picture)
Last one for now, also Nepal. I have plenty of other pics from Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia, Burma and Vietnam if there is any interest.
In the pic is a wild 'white' elephant bull crossing the river in Chitwan National Park. Having never seen a famous white elephant before, I expected more... it was basically just blotches of white that covered only about half of the elephant.
My latest trip to Tokyo at the Mori Tower. Really overcast that day. Very few people visiting. It was kind of nicer that way.
I drank the water at Kiyomizu-dera. (You are not supposed to drink the water.) A swish and a spit would do. Baka gaijins like me would not know these things.
Hakone Shrine was small and out of the way. But it was really atmospheric, especially on a foggy day up in the mountains.
pic attached is 3 pagodas in Dali (Yunnan)
spooky, narrow hallways at Prasat Bayon in Cambodia. Just got back from my first trip to SEA
I disagree with you on the usefulness of black and white.
Sunset 4 minutes walk from home.
Guess the place, win a prize, part 2!
St Feliu de Guixols in Gerona, Spain.
It's a gigantic stitch of several smaller pictures, but Uluru in Australia
Thailand, fishing port near Cha-am. Bets meal I ever ate in a on-the-beach seafood place there.
Under the glacier, Iceland.
G'night, /trv/ see you tomorrow.
Waterfall in sumidero canyon chiapas. View was gorgeous but water was pretty dirty. Shame about the trash problem in Mexico.
Enroute to Mostar from Sarajevo. Excuse the quality, it was taken through the bus window
Suppose I'll join too.
Lake Togo in Lomé, Togo, Africa (2007).
It costs a bitch to print out black/white pictures too, thanks to all that silver.
protip: save black and white for photos with strong 'subjects' that can speak for themselves. Drowning the colour makes you focus on the subject itself, increasing the emotional connection. Plain street scenes in b/w is a bit pointless.
don't "protip" me bitch.
I posted that because its the most descriptive, I was shooting B&W all day and didn't think to turn it off. I agree that it has no artistic merit. I wouldn't have posted it if I was in /p/.
The rare and exotic Sedentary Cat of Malaysia. Seen here in its native habitat, lying full length on the floor of a ferry station in southern Malaysia and growling softly at anybody who approached him or his piece of string..
View from the Aussie War Memorial over to Parliament. Shame my camera was so shit, it was a good opportunity for a better photo.
On either side of the memorial were walls covered with the names of dead kangaroofuckers, the poppies were placed next to their names on ANZAC day.
Holy Isle in Scotland.
Has a nice Buddhist community living there.
