Photo Essay: The Sanctuary of Bom Jesús do Monte

The second day of our “Grapes and Sailors” post-TBU-conference tour was a marathon. Between dawn and dusk, we visited four historic towns in the province of Minho, which made for an exhausting but memorable day. For me, the most unforgettable leg of the tour was the first church we visited in the town of Braga.…

Photo of the Week: Santos City of Lights

Every September, Brisbane holds a big celebration of…well, Brisbane. This festival — creatively called the Brisbane Festival and formerly known as the River Festival — is about three weeks long and includes all sorts of cultural events throughout the city and South Bank. To be honest, I’ve never really attended many of those events, but…

Photo Essay: Queen Charlotte Sound’s Historic Ship Cove

The Queen Charlotte Track, which winds its way between Queen Charlotte and Kenepuru Sounds in Marlborough, starts its journey at Ship Cove (Meretoto). When I arrived there on a ferry from Picton, I knew that I had plenty of time before dusk (and no tent to set up at my first stop in the Endeavour…

Photo of the Week: Catnapping in Old San Juan

Old San Juan in June is an incredibly humid place. Even though we had expected the sticky heat and dressed accordingly, my friends and I were still sweating buckets as we walked along the cobblestone streets. Even after having copious piraguas — snow cones — from a friendly vendor outside El Morro fort, we were…

Photo of the Week: The Sydney Harbour Bridge at Night

I have a thing for taking photos of bridges at night. I don’t know why — I’ve never been particularly fascinated with how bridges are constructed (although it might have been easier to choose a major at uni if I was). It just seems like since I’ve taken up night photography, I’ve been attracted to…

Photo of the Week: The Ghosts of Tourists Past

On Friday night, I was stoked that I finally had an evening in Sydney with absolutely nothing planned. On every previous trip to the city, I’ve been with people or otherwise have had plans that have stopped me from going out with a camera and a tripod. That’s meant that I’ve never gotten the photos…

Photo Essay: An Evening of Burning Steel Wool

In the early part of this year, I took hardly any photos at all because it was very difficult to hold a camera and a set of crutches at the same time. Since I’ve been off the crutches, I’ve taken quite a few photos, but last Tuesday was only the second time (the first being…

Photo Essay: Special Effects at the Body Art Carnivale

You may have seen already that I was an official photographer at the Australian Body Art Carnivale that was held in Eumundi last month. Over the course of two days, I saw many incredibly talented artists turn normal people into works of art. It was amazing to watch the transformation in just a few short…

The Dangers of Photo Contests

While browsing online, you stumble across a photo contest. The prizes draw you in — a safari trip to South Africa, a brand-new, top-of-the-line dSLR, $5000 cash. All you have to do is enter a photo that roughly matches the categories outlined in the contest brief (and occasionally, pay an entry fee). Why wouldn’t you…

Photo of the Week: Miami Surf…on the Gold Coast

Last weekend, Brisbane’s Travel Massive took a road trip down to the Gold Coast for a Friday night meetup. We had a great turnout, with over 60 people showing up to the Surfers Paradise Hilton for a fun night out. Because we were expecting a late night, I stayed with the awesome Kirsty rather than driving back…
