Shot(s) of the Day – Windows

Contrast in French - Marseille

                                            Contrast in French – Marseille

One of my favorite things to shoot are windows.. contrasting colors, shutters, shapes and sizes, all make for wonderful compositions. I try to shoot in groups of three (or more) but sometimes, even a single windows can stand out..

Produce - Ivano-Frankovsk

Get out and explore .. I know that every city has it’s iconic landmarks that are a “must see” ..but every once in a while, you have to wander the side streets..the back alleys..You never know what is waiting around the next corner..

And it’s not always just a unique photo you may find.. One of the best cups of tea I had in Istanbul was in a little cafe, we found in an alley in the Galata district after getting lost.. It didn’t even have a name.. just one table against the wall with an ashtray and free wifi.. and an almost perfect cup of tea.. The elderly gentleman that brought the tea (for a mere 1 Lira) sat and talked while we sipped our tea.. Since I don’t speak any Turkish,  I have no idea what he was saying, but his friendliness and smile made me feel like we were old friends..  It was quite a treat, and not really uncommon..  respect, courtesy and a smile go along way when visiting a foreign country..

Take a chance.. pitch the “tourist map” for a day or 2 and just explore..

Happy Travels!
