A very hesitant yet fun-nervous start to a sneak peak into my photographic travel journey. ‘The Duck’ aka the 0th post is a prelude to photographs that’ll follow and present a slightly different perspective of the world.
Through exploring obscure landscapes of Saudi Arabia, barren lands of Siberia, cityscapes of London and the savannah of Africa, there ran a common feature. The moment I saw a scene through my eyepiece, it formed a film of peace and calm, which allowed me to see every subject in the frame in slow motion and grave detail. This blog will be centred around describing the moment and the experience that led to each photograph. I hope to show you the world through a fresh lens and describe every shot through a unique frame of reference!
Travel, a lot like love, is an addiction, that once you get into is tough to get out. In both cases, you discover a lot more about yourself and the more you explore the more you discover!
Australia and New Zealand was the first time I tasted this sweet poison when I planned an entire itinerary and led a group (well my parents and grandparents but still felt like I was leading a troupe) on the entire tour. It was also the first time I captured a shot I was mildly proud of (although it resulted in an irate bus of tourists, as I had to wait for the duck to get into the frame).
‘The Duck’ casually swam past the gorgeous Kiwi landscape with a creepy guy lying down on a jetty with a Nikon Coolpix patiently waiting for it to get into the frame. Very few sites in the world provide a peaceful and gentle feeling by just being there. Barren acres of mountains, green and sheep (oh sheep so many of them) is what this island is!
