How to take better travel photos: Subject of interest 

This posts links in quite well with this weeks The Daily Post’s photo challenge. 

Whenever I go to a new place I have to admit that I do like to photograph the main tourist attractions despite knowing that there are probably the same photographs taken from the same place already out there. 

I think it is nice to have your own photograph of, for example, the Eiffel Tower but it is equally important to capture the other stuff that may not be of interest to every tourist. 

For example, on my trip to Amsterdam I ended up taking photographs of the windows I walked past that had something placed on the windowsill.

It is these photographs that capture the true essence of a place rather than just the key landmarks.

  1. What a unique idea! I was once travelling through Bath over the Christmas period and took photos at the door step of each house with a wreath on its front door. I love looking through that collection of photos and it really brings back the atmosphere of the trip…


    1. That does sound like a nice way to commemorate the Christmas trip! I also love Bath so I imagine the pictures were as lovely at the city. Have you done a post about it?
