Voyaging and The Privilege of Being There

JHH5II-10176

Question: How do you make great travel photographs?

Answer: F8 and be there.

Ok, it’s an old one. And I guess it applies to just about any kind of travel. But somehow the voyaging life that I have lived for over twenty years seems, at least to me, to yield more, and more wonderful, photo moments than being on land.

And I’m truly grateful for the privilege of having been there.
