If you enjoy photography, you will definitely enjoy going on a 7 - 8 day cruise through the caribbean. My wife and I took the Navigator by the Sea Royal Caribbean Cruise, which ported at Cozumel, Grand Caymans Islands and Jamaica. Not only do you get to enjoy activities on the ship and land excursions, but you get the opportunity to capture so many different images along the way. This was definitely one of my favorite photography vacations. Take a look at some of the amazing moments during our vacation.
Travel / Cultural
Last month my wife and I had an opportunity to get away. Our first trip to the Bahamas and the Atlantis Hotel & Resort - Paradise Island. Here are some photos of our trip, and the majestic waters of the Caribbean. If you ever have a chance to vacation in the tropics, this is one location I would recommend.
Sugar Land Texas is a wonderful place to live! This city values family life and community, which is expressed through their effort to provide families with activities throughout the year. Just yesterday, we had an opportunity to take part in the Cultural Kite Festival at Memorial Park. Here are a few photos I took during the event.
Not too far from where we live, there is a wonderful tourist attraction called the George Ranch Historical Park. This 20,000 acre working ranch was established over 100 years ago and is a historical reminder of Texas and those who first settled this part of Texas. We had a chance to visit this ranch last month and I had the opportunity to take my camera along for a few photos.
Do you find it hard to think of something to do on the weekends, after a busy work week? One thing my wife and I enjoy doing is attending the local farmer's market. This gives me the chance to take some wonderful photos of people in their happy faces. The Farmer's Market at Imperial was a great venue to take some candids of people. Got this shot of a young child wondering if he can put this object he found into his mouth. Or at least that is what I'm imagining him to be thinking. Also you can see a local dog rescue helping to save some older doggies' lives. If you are looking for an opportunity to take some pictures of people in their happy place, check out your local farmer's market!
This past Sunday morning I had a rare opportunity to take pictures of nature, while my wife and Mojo (my dog) walked ahead of me on the trail at Brazos Bend State Park. This park is made up of a couple lakes and are connected by trails. Also there are trails that go all the way around the lakes and have mini docks that extend out into the lake, so people can fish or take pictures. Typically these lakes are a habitat for alligators, but we didn't see any the day we were walking. On a busy Saturday during the mating months of May and June, you'll see a lot of people at the park looking at the alligators and taking photos.
On this day, there was still a lot of wildlife running and flying around. Here are a few photos of nature at peace. What a great way to start out the day!
