Seven Lakes Hiking

Natalia Maks

I love traveling around the world, however I have to admit that I find a lot of joy in photographing places near by home, for instance Seven Lakes Park. We love to go there for a short hiking adventures. I have a series oh photographs which make pretty strong statements with quiet colors. I shorten the series for this blog, but was thinking of creating the nice meditational music background for the whole collection.

more tales of train travel…..

Life in Russia.

Those of you who follow my blog regularly probably know by now that I am an avid fan of traveling by train when visiting Russia and other post-Soviet countries. I’m pretty comfortable on the train, as I traveled it a bit during the year I lived in Saint Petersburg, as well as my recent return visit and travels. I’ve been through the Baltic countries on the train, to the arctic circle and back (Murmansk), to Moscow, Kiev (Ukraine) and Bryansk, Russia. I’ve been kicked off a train in the middle of no-where Ukraine (politely) when I mistakenly purchased tickets that transited Belarus and I didn’t have a transit visa. I’ve experienced more stares at my American passport than I like to remember and had my ear talked off by people who want to know all about America and test my Russian. But then, these are some of my fondest memories…

TSA screenings at Phoenix airport draw fire from disabled travelers | Breast Cancer News | Scoop.it

Screenings at Phoenix airport draw fire from disabled travelers.

The Arizona Republic reports that 26 complaints were filed on behalf of people with disabilities at the airport’s checkpoints in 2012, which is more than double the national average, according to records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

One of the complaints was filed by an 82-year-old woman in a wheelchair who was reportedly required to take out her prosthetic breast while passing through a TSA security checkpoint before boarding a flight to London last June.

“At her age and physical capability, she posed absolutely no risk whatsoever to anyone’s safety and should not have been subjected to such invasive and (undignifed) treatment,” the woman’s grandchild wrote in a complaint obtained by the paper. “This sort of degrading treatment is more appropriate for prisoners.”

Traveling to the USA with a Fuji X-Pro 1 | Axel Friberg | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I am a Swedish photographer based in Uppsala, north of Stockholm. This summer I have been lucky enough to travel for 5 weeks to the US, France and the west coast of Sweden thanks to hospitable friends. I would like to share my pictures with you and your readers. They are all taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 and 35mm f/1.4. I recently read your thoughts on the new Fujifilm X-A1 and your take on the X-trans sensor, or the lack thereof. After shooting with the X-Pro1 for little over a year, I dare say I have some experience with the sensor. And I agree with you! In fact, I dislike the way my OOC files turn out. It is not uncommon that the pictures look kind of smeared. Especially soft objects, like leaves or skin, despite being in perfect focus. However, I have always found it to work well as a monochrome camera. I am huge B&W fan. For a long time, I did some “pixel peeping”, or at least kind of; 100% zoom to check that I nailed focus etc. I’m not a rich guy, and when I put over 2’000 USD last year on the camera and lens, knowingly sacrificing AF-speed for IQ, I was kind of expecting greatness.

Spain, Traveling Experience

My Experience in Spain Last Week

Bullfighting Experience in Madrid

“Madrid Bullfighting Tickets – 59,99 €” http://feedly.com/k/1cskFot I Just read it, Now I’ll share it

Just want to talk about my experience in Madrid, Spain. Ever since I was a little kid I always want to see a bullfighting match in Madrid and finally I was able to experience it last week. It was a once in a life time experience for me and I really enjoyed it.

It’s awesome how people in spain have come up with a sport like bullfighting where a person will be in a ring “Arena” with a Bull which is a very dangerous animal. I was thrilled and scared for the matador while he’s getting the bull down.

I will not forget my experience in Madrid. I did a lot of stuff in the city with the great accomodation of my tour guide whom I hired to guide me with all the tours that I purchase at What to do in Madrid Travelling and Tours. I told my friends all about it and they are now planning to visit madrid this summer. I recommend it to everyone to experience the bullfighting event and also all the tours that you can afford. It will be more unforgetable if you will experience it with your love ones.

So travel all around Spain and start your journey by going to the beautiful city of Madrid.
