My 7 Super Photos

April 10th, 2012 by Fitz, Travel Adventures & Places, 4 Comments

I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots. It’s a fun little exercise in posting seven of your best photos with captions and then passing it around the travel-blogosphere. Here goes:

1. A photo that takes my breath away

Grand Prismatic Spring – Yellowstone’s Grand Prismatic Spring is astounding to behold.

2. A photo that makes me laugh or smile

Chipmunks on Man – these little guys were incorrigible.

3. A photo that makes me dream

Sun Studio Recording Room – all the history and vintage gear in this room would make any musician dream.

4. A photo that makes me think

1880 Town – Wandering thru a preserved western town circa 1880 really makes you think about how profoundly different life was in those days.

5. A photo that makes my mouth water

Twistee Treat – Mmm. On a hot day of driving Route 66 what’s better than ice cream purchased from a giant ice cream cone. So American!

6. A photo that tells a story

Showtown USA Bar – A dilapidated building as the perfect metaphor for a vanishing art form. Read the full story here.

7. A photo that I am most proud of (aka my worthy of National Geographic shot)

Band of Grass – This is not the best picture I’ve ever taken but it’s the one I’m proudest of. It was taken just outside the Grand Prismatic Spring (above) in Yellowstone. The spring is surrounded by vast and imposing vistas that were attracting innumerable camera lenses. This little band of grass was valiantly attempting to eek out a living between the river and the toxic runoff of the spring. I loved the symmetry and after I took the shot I hung out awhile to see if it attracted any other photographers. Nope. No one was interested. It’s easy to take pictures of big, impressive things but I like to think that a mark of a good photographer is the ability to capture the smaller things that most people miss. In this case, I think I succeeded.

And here are a few other blogger taking part in the exercise that I’d recommend you see:
