There are many beautiful and exortic places in countries around the world. I do get the chance, once in a while, to visit some of those places. I was in Salzburg, Austria, once. Oh, that was an awesome place, beautiful and so scenic ! I did not miss the opportunity to take photos of those scenic places. I have a collection of those photos now. Do you take photos when you visit new places , places you had not been to before ?

Antrim coast, Northern Ireland - Photograph of the famous Antrim coast Northern Ireland
I love to take many photos of places i have travelled to. I have been to alot of different countries around the world. I have only just realised lately, how beautiful my own country actually is. I have started to take my camera with me a lot when I go out, to take photographs of the things I see here. I live in Northern Ireland near the Antrim coast and it is beautiful. Have you ever been here? My husband has visited Austria and he too says it was breathtaking. I have included a photograph of the antim coast for you to see.

Thank you very much for the beautiful photo. I have not been to Ireland. I do know that there are many beautiful places in Ireland. I look forward to the opportunity to come to Ireland some time soon, and I would definitely bring my camera along ! Thank you very much again.

Beautiful Colors - Taken a month ago at a Nature Center near my house.
Don't you have one to add to this discussion? I take photos all the time wherever I go. This is a shot of a Nature Center I visit a lot for walking etc. This is a shot of some of the beautiful colors of the leaves etc last month. I am my fathers caregiver so I have not been anywhere really for 5 years. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

That is a beautiful picture. Thank you very much. Yes, leaves changing colors as the season changes makes the environment very beautiful, indeed. I often take pictures of the seasonal changes.

There have been three great trips I have taken and I didn't take a camera. I have all the great things I saw in my head. I went to New Orleans , before Katrina, L.A. and San Francisco, and Montreal and I still remember all the beautiful things I saw. What I do have is postcards. I prefer them.

Hello Sarah. How are you ? Oh, I see. Yes, of course, postcards are a good collection and reminders of the places you have visited. Sometimes, since postcards are the art of professsionals, even better than photos we take by ourselves with our cameras.

Yes of course! Although I've been almost all around the world, I'd never been to North Wales. Went there recently with my wife and niece from Vietnam and we all loved it. What a beautiful place. We took more than 400 photos on a week..haha! The good thing is, I can now put them all on disc, with a slideshow and add music and it's great! Brings it all to life with music playing.

Oh really ? That would be so nice to make it a slideshow with music added. An excellent idea ! I think I would do that way too with the photos which I want to show to my friends and colleagues at work.
30 Sep 11
Yes, it's a good idea. We went to The New Forest in the south of England last week and here is a little slideshow of our photos and video together. Hope you like it :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yc_K2VOF1b0

A camera is almost an absolute necessity when travelling, isn't it ? Taking photos is a good remender of the places one has visited and enjoyed. I keep albums of my travel photos too.

Absolutely. Our most recent trip was to Rarotonga (Cook Islands) for my sister in laws wedding and we took lots of pictures and videos. Even when we go to our sons activities or fairs and festivals, I take pictures of us all the time and then blog about them.

I probably would if for no other reason that to prove I'd been there. I know after I've been on a special trip with family and/or friends, it's fun to get together and relive the experience through our pictures. You're right about Salzburg, Austria being a beautiful place, but all of those countries in that part of the world are beautiful, especially those majestic mountains.

Yes, you are perfectly right. Countries in that part of the world are really amazingly scenic and beautiful. The Swiss Alps is incomparable in its unique beauties.

I enjoy taking photos when I travel .. and I'm glad that I have a new digital camera for me to use during my next trip. I usually just save the files though .. but hopefully, I can get around to choosing my favorites and printing them

That is certainly very good that you have a new digital camera. So, you can take many many pictures and have them saved, right ? I like using digital camera too.

All the beautiful memories and thoughts come back to mind when looking at the photos, isn't it ? That is the value of taking photos. May get expensive, but definitely worth it !

Yes, definitely. I always have my camera handy when travelling to a new place. I make sure to take quality pictures of the scenery alone. I also make sure to take pictures of myself with the scenery in the background. Pictures are very important to me because I can show people where I have been and what I have done. They are a great way of reflecting on the past.

It is good to have oneself in the photo so that one will remember exactly the places visited. The photos really becomes invaluable records of the travels and the experiences.

Hi there greenline! I love traveling! It's one of those things that I truly enjoy. Each time I travel, I take as many photos possible. But of course, my favorite is the sunset. Well, I also take photos of interesting subjects. I take photos of interesting places or spots. I have several albums at home where I keep all these pictures. Others have already been framed.

Hi Dolce. Yes, I have a number of pictures framed too. Those that are related to my work, I keep them in my work place. Many that are more personal, I have them in the living room at home.

I do take photo when I go to new places. I like to take photo. By taking photo I can keep the memory about new places. Maybe I won't have chance to go at that place in the future. Through photo I can share it with others like my friends and family. When I want to see it again, I just have to open my photo album.
@greenline (14838)

That's right. Photos carry so much meaning and beautiful memories. I keep albums of the photos, and also send copies to my relatives and friends, so they would see the wonderful places I have been to.

Hello Dodo. It is always so nice to browse through the albums, isn't it. The photos bring back beautiful memories of the places visited, the people one has met. One feels like one is back there right then !

Yes, I would like to take photos when I go to a place where I seldom been to or never been to. I also like to take photos when I get together with some friend whom I haven't met for a long time, or whom I may never see again. taking photos, photos don't lie, it approves what we used to do before.
