Five Random Travel Photos I Love

I may not be a world famous National Geographic travel photographer, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy photography as a hobby. Flipping through my photos recently I found a few that I love and thought I would share them with you.


I was walking around the Sydney Opera House when I took this photo. It’s an art exhibit installed in front of the famous building and I love the symmetry of the display, particularly set against the Sydney skyline.


This cute guy is from St. Kitts, and I met him while exploring one of the island’s most popular spots – the Black Rock cliffs. I love how he’s smacking his lips as if in anticipation of a pint of Carib beer.


This is a photo of the Franz Josef glacier in New Zealand, taken as I was flying overhead in a helicopter. It was a sunny winter’s morning and the light created dramatic shadows and beautiful colors.


I’ve shared this photo before, and with good reason – I really like it. I was in a 4×4 racing across the Wadi Rum desert when we passed a small Bedouin encampment with several young camels. I asked to stop and the owner graciously allowed me to take some photos as the sun set. It was a great moment.


This was a lucky shot, without question. One our first day of excursions in the Galapagos, we noticed this family of blue footed boobies adjacent to the walking path. True to the form for all animals on the Galapagos, they had no fear of humans, which allowed me to take this photo of a baby asking for some nourishment from mom.

  1. Guess which one I loved the most? Yup, the last one! Not sure exactly why, but it’s a combination of Mama bird’s look of alertness/contentment, the chicks open and trusting gaze upwards, and that splash of bright blue on the right edge of the photo, Papa bird coming home. Great shot!
