USA 2015

When I travel, my photography is not the type where you can immediately gather from the pictures where I’ve been.

For example, when I walked through Charleston last month, I so wanted to take pictures around The Battery but I knew these incredibly beautiful old houses would just look like any old house if I took pictures, boring. I don’t have an eye for that kind of thing, and although I do know there’s a picture somewhere in there when I see it, I wouldn’t know how to capture it.

That’s why when I walk through new cities my eye is more trained on little details along the way. I didn’t take many pictures in Charleston, and the ones from Boston are mainly of those little details. I threw in a few from Ogungquit on which I tried out different kinds of editing; the day was very overcast so there were no popping colours in the originals.

  1. Looooove the Boston detail pics – sometimes in the bustle we can overlook the beauty of home. And we just visited friends in Charleston, so it’s super fun to recognize some of those snaps, too. Great Saturday morning smiles!

    • Thank you very much! I gather you’re from Boston? So it’s even nicer to hear you like my details πŸ™‚ Hope you had a good time in Charleston (without experiencing the flooding!), and am happy to provide the smiles for you!

  2. I agree, you have a great eye for detail. But I have to disagree that you would not be able to capture the whole scenery. How is your trip going so far? Hope it is the best!

    Enjoy your time!

    • No, it’s really true – and I don’t mean this negatively, it’s just that some kinds of photography, like landscapes and architecture, are just not my typical thing, so I often don’t know how to get things into a good pic. I could read up on it and practice, but I guess I’m just more interested in detail and food photography πŸ™‚

      • I think you can pick it up indeed, but you’re right: if you have different talents focus on them. Just wanted make sure that you did not mean that you can’t do it πŸ˜‰

        Happy Monday!

  3. I like the way you focus our attention on the quirky details and unusual viewpoints we might normally miss! And I think I have a photo of that same gravestone, with the skull . . .
