We love the idea of clearing away annoyances and obstacles so you can focus on your photo. It’s a classic philosophy, one which prompted us to retire to our reading chairs, pour a brandy and pontificate the possibility of another giveaway.

    This one was taken from a cable car going to the highest point in Singapore. The buildings were neat and everything just lined up.

    I love the water immensely; waterpolo, swimming, scuba, etc are all things that I love to do, because of this I chose a photo that stood out to me in my search for a great travel photograph that contained water.

    This just seems like something incredible to do, its almost like being in a whole new world down there and you are the outsider.

    This Peacock followed us around the Franklin Zoo in MA. Every time my brother turned towards it, he would puff out his tail, stomp his feet, and squawk! He really disliked Ben! It’s a reminder of a great vacation with my family…

    One that I love is from when I recently traveled back to the UK. The cabbie had been paid a flat rate, but thought I would love this small village, so he pulled off of the motorway for me to be able to get out, stretch my legs for a few minutes and take some pictures before we continued on our way.

    My go-to locale any time of the year ~ Carrizo Plain National Monument. I don’t consider myself a landscape photographer, but you’d never know with these photos. Most people think it’s a desolate place, but you really have to take a second and really look.
    on of my faves ~
    and the whole picture =)

    I no longer have my version of this shot (as in, the one I took), it was taken 15 years ago on film, and I have no idea what I did with it, but I got to play with a brass band here, and it was great.
