If you’re anything like me, Cuba provides a strong fascination of culture, politics, and history. The Forbidden Cuba mystique surrounds the island and the people who live there. In the weeks before our trip to see Cuba for ourselves and make our own opinions, I’ve been eager to read everything […]Read More
Who doesn’t like Crock Pot Pulled Chicken? This one is SOOOO easy! And it tastes even better for leftovers the next day! 🙂 We make this for football tailgating parties or like today, something easy to munch on all day when it’s raining outside and there is football on TV […]Read More

Oh look! It’s a beautiful elk! He looks so powerful and strong. He’s making lots of loud elk noises, so he’s obviously not very happy. So what do I do? Go up to the fence to get a photo. But a photo isn’t enough. I want a video!
As you can see, my unhappy elk did NOT appreciate being filmed one bit! I guess it’s lucky that he didn’t jump over the fence to let me know. I could have been the featured story on Romania’s Dumbest Tourists segment. It would have served me right.
Afterwards – when I could hold my camera again without shaking – I was able to get another shot that I was proud of. From a LONG distance away!
For me, it’s so easy to get caught up in the moment while practicing travel photography. It’s all about capturing that perfect instant in time to share. So far I’ve twisted my ankle (twice!) and skinned my knees on volcanic rock while trying to get a perfect shot, but fortunately nothing too scary.
Have you ever done something “not so smart” for a photo or video? To what lengths would you go for the perfect shot? Was it worth it? (That’s a silly question. Of course it was!) 🙂
We’ve been invited on a press trip to Romania by their Tourism Board and I don’t have anything to wear! Well, not exactly. I do have a few pairs of shorts, a bathing suit, and a few blouses I classify as “dressy” only because they don’t fall into the t-shirt […]Read More
Just a short trip outside the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia you can find the tranquil Batu Caves. Well, tranquil until you encounter the monkeys that is! As you enter, one of the first things you will notice are the monkeys looking for a hand out. No need […]Read More
Our mouths start to water around 10:30am. Though we’ve been told that the tell-tale horn won’t blow until 10:45 or sometimes even 11 if he’s running late. It’s Monday, so things could be busy where he works. We wait impatiently, straining our ears for the sound of his car coming […]Read More
