Photos in online travel guides

I posted a couple of weeks ago about our range of travels in 2007. We also take a lot of photos as we go.

Now, both Ola and I have had some photos chosen for inclusion in the latest editions of the Schmap Online Travel Guides. Ola’s image is in the Paris guide, and one of mine is in the Las Vegas guide.


Ola’s photos are frequently fantastic… she usually takes our compact Canon Ixus 850 IS along with her, and her eye for composition is wonderful. When we are out together she often complains that I take too long to frame up a shot with the DSLR, so I envy her ability to spot a good composition. I’ve tagged up her photos as takenby:ola on Flickr… although she’s got a fair portfolio building up so she really should get her own Flickr account, don’t you think? 🙂
