    Our photo of the day: Chicago's 'Cloud Gate' aka 'The Bean'

    Jul202011

    Designed by Indian-born English sculptor Anish Kapoor, Cloud Gate is one of Chicago's best-known landmarks. It lends itself to a host of quirky photographs of distorted reflections of either yourself or the skyline, and it gives you an excuse to visit one of the city's best-loved parks, Millennium Park. I was surprised when I read though, that the locals didn't like it when it was first unveiled.

    Our photo of the day: A ferry in Sydney serves its stops

    Jul192011

    I've said before on numerous times on this blog that Sydney is my favourite city in the world. There are many reasons for this - the beaches; the spectacular sights; the nightlife. Another is the harbour. I love being beside the water, and when I lived there over ten years ago, once a week I treated myself to a trip home on one of the city's ferries.

    Our photo of the day: One of the top ten views in the world

    Jul152011

    Every now and then you see something special where you have what can only be described as a 'moment'. One of these places for me was Cerro Campanario near Bariloche on the fringe of Argentina's Patagonia region. According to National Geographic it's one of the 'top ten views in the world'. Looking at this photo you can see why.

    Our photo of the day: Apples on sale at Bury Market near Manchester

    Jul142011

    While I was in Manchester, I made the short trip out to the ‘World Famous Bury Market’. Hop on the tram in the city centre and you’ll be out there in no time at all. A smorgasbord of locally-sourced treats awaits you there, from fruits like the shiny apples you can see here to creamy cheeses, fresh seafood and more. Definitely one for the ‘foodies’ out there.

    Our photo of the day: Enjoying a sunny day on Keurbooms Beach in Plettenberg Bay

    Jul132011

    During my trip to South Africa last year I was lucky enough to spend some time in a beautiful seaside town called Plettenberg Bay. It’s one of many possible stops along the hugely popular Garden Route. I’d definitely recommend you check it out. Not only does it have beautiful beaches like the one you can see here, the town also has some great restaurants and lots of nearby attractions.

    Our photo of the day: A local drives his longboat in Thailand

    Jul122011

    You've seen the photo hundreds of times. You know the one? The shot of a long boat parked up on a beach somewhere in Thailand, probably on an island such as Ko Phi Phi or Ko Samui. Don't get me wrong - it's a great shot. If you're going to Thailand make sure to get take it. But don't forget to tell the story of the person who drives it also.
