A to Z Challenge: P is for Photos

By Saturday, April 18, 2015

This post originally appeared as part of the A to Z Challenge, and was called 'P is for Photos'.

I don't consider myself much of a photographer. I don't own a DSLR, I don't know if I ever will. I do very much enjoy taking photos though, and they're my primary souvenir when I travel. Photos and ticket stubs are usually all I bring back (along with the occasional sunburn and cold). 

But anyway, here are a few of my favorite photos I've taken in the past few years:

Venice, by San Marco's Square

Athens, Temple of Olympian Zeus
Krakow, St Mary's Basilica

Kathmandu, Rani Pokhari

Kathmandu, Durbar Square

Kirtipur, just outside of Kathmandu
Bracciano Lake and the Orsini-Odescaldi Castle (Near Rome)

St Charles Bridge, Prague

  1. Beautiful photos, sometimes the best shots come from the simple cameras. I would love to go to Poland or Kathmandu someday. I have been to the other spots featured here.

  2. Agree, nice photos. I have the most compact DSLR I could find, but it's still sometimes a pain to lug around. My wife uses a mirror-less camera (which is smaller than a DSLR but bigger than a point & shoot) and loves it, because it has the ability of DSLR but is light weight and the size fits her hands better.

    1. That sounds a lot like my camera, I've heard them called bridge camera or prosumer cameras. I chose mine because it has a great zoom, but I'm frustrated by how little control I have over the aperture.

  3. These are lovely! You really captured the spirit of the city.

  4. Beautiful pictures! You captured your travels so well! I especially love the picture of The Temple of Olympian Zeus! :)
