So often when we travel, we get caught up in the big picture.
The big temple.
The massive monument.
The beautiful palace.
But look closer, and you will see so many lovely details that get missed along the way. We often think that it’s the big things that show best what we saw or did, but I find that close ups and details give so much more of a feel for what we saw and did. I’ve said it before, but it’s true. They show texture, detail…and you can imagine what it must have felt like to touch it, and sometimes even what it might have smelled or tasted like! (You can at least imagine…) So I love getting detail shots when I travel.
Look for colours, textures, interesting details…food, flowers, architectural details, items that are representative of or common in the culture. All of these make for interesting detail shots that will give people a real glimpse into life in that place.
So here are some of my favourites from our last vacation…
So go out and search for some details where you are! Leave the link in the comments below and I’ll come check them out! 🙂
