original post

As in a way to travel or places/locations to travel to?

Places/locations for the most part, it’s pretty wide open though really!

Awesome, thank you! : )

Egypt. One of the most famous world's miracles - The Great Pyramids of Giza.
Shot with long tele-photo lens. Very nice example of comparing the scale of objects - small silhouettes of horses and huge ancient creation out of stones

Enjoy the scenery :)

Cheers! Meeting with friends at a pub in Prague, Czech Republic.

One of the most saint places for Orthodox Christians - The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The church contains, according to traditions dating back to at least the fourth century, the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, at a place known as "Calvary" or "Golgotha", and Jesus's empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected. The tomb is enclosed by the 19th-century shrine, called the Aedicule (Edicule)

Enjoy the scenery :)

Entry #1 : This is why we travel

To take moments which we will remember forever. To make something immortal and eternal. Sometimes are this little thing, other times are this huge thing. But in our memory always extraordinary things. And if you have an observant eye you can catch someone who is catching his travel moment! And here is what I did ;) This was taken with Sony a6500 and 18-105 lens. Enjoy the photo.


Hello! I like this contest :) Here is my first entry
