Here is a compilation of some interesting stuff that I have been reading this week.
- “Thirty spectacular examples of terraced agriculture“, on matador trips is a collection of beautiful images of terrace farms from across the world, predominantly from China. Some very interesting images there, especially the first one with a multitude of colours.
- Priyank makes a case for why he doesn’t have any furniture or TV at home, and any money that he wants to spend will be spent on travelling. He justifies his idea..
Ofcourse I am biased towards things that I am passionate about! NOW is the right time to travel. I feel like I’m on this constant quest to see more places, meet more people, eat different foods, experience the beauty of nature and take pictures of human genius around the world. I’m not going to discuss the fabulous reasons everyone ought to travel since google is full of articles on that topic.
- Every other day, I watch tender-coconut vendors piling up more than 100 of them in bicycles and pushing them on the road. Each time I see them, I can’t help but wondering how hard it is. It appears that they sell tender-coconut in a similar manner in Malaysia, going from street to street, but they have found an easier and more innovative solution.
- I am a strong proponent of the idea that travel photographers should take time to work on their images than do a frenzied shoot. Here is something I wrote about last week – about letting your hair down while making pictures. I happened to stumble upon an interview of well-known photography Ami Vitale, who seems to echo the sentiments.
Travel photography is not about travel. It is about being intimate with cultures, people, and environments. It is as much about humanity as about location. Learn as much as you can about the culture and place before taking your camera out. Know why and what you want to convey with your images.
