Ever have that photo you've always wanted to take? Ever have that nagging feeling of that photo you wanted to set up in a far away country? Share here!
I'm talking about this now because in very short notice, I'll be traveling to Japan and Hong Kong for about a week in each area. I'll be able to make it there in time for the cherry blossoms hopefully (might be a bit early), but here's hoping the crowds aren't too crazy. Always loved taking photos of cherry blossoms, but I'll be able to do it in Japan, and in Kyoto no less. Unfortunately, because of my new job I only can take 2 weeks off max at a time, which really stinks. That being said, it will truly be an adventure because I'll have to figure out how to travel between cities on my own. I'm not taking a tour.
So what's on your photography bucket list?
Nikon D7000/ Nikon D40/ Nikon FM2/ 18-135 AF-S/ 35mm 1.8 AF-S/ 105mm Macro AF-S/ 50mm 1.2 AI-S
Enjoy catching my younger relatives at their various special life events; and they just keep on growing.
Was in DC last year for a friend's wedding at cherry blossom time; was a bit earlier than normal. A long walk around the Tidal Basin, but well worth it. Good luck dpidude.
Was in Europe recently and hardly scratched the surface of the possibilities. Would do the same itinerary again in a heartbeat, though spring or fall would be preferred.
Four seasons in Yellowstone would have to rank up there somewhere.
NSXTypeR - just saw this -
For what it's worth, I don't really think bucket list items like Snake River Overlook (Ansel Adams) should be reproduced. For me the challenge is to interpret the scene in my own way.
This summer I'm planning on getting some images from Rocky Mountain NP and Devils Tower.
Headed to West Texas next week, perhaps the McDonald Observatory area. May try to work on technique on that trip. The moon should be close to new so, barring clouds, it could offer opportunities.
When Nikon upgrades the 200mm f/2.0, I will book a trip with Thom to Botswana.
Then the Galapagos. Then Patagonia. Then India. And I mustn't forget my long bucket list of scantily clad girls.
