Many thanks to my talented friend over at Photo Talk Daily, a fellow NJ-based photographer, for nominating me for an Awesome Blog Content award. I’m very, very appreciative!
With ABC recognition, I’m asked to share 10 blogs I admire. I’m a few shy of that number, but here are six I enjoy which I haven’t previously recommended someplace else:
The right mood – Laura is a photographer and writer who pairs a daily haiku with an image, which is a lovely concept. I love poetry and have always been taken with the haiku form, so for me, this is a perfect melding: simple, clean, beautiful.
bjornsphoto – His photography just blows me away. And reminds me I need to add Sweden to my life list (see below).
Anywhere but london – With so much Olympics-driven attention directed to London this year, this blog is meant to put 150 other wonderful English attractions on your radar. Each is described in exactly 32 words (20 + 12) and is accompanied by a stunning image.
Photography by Anika Alonzo – Lifestyle photographer in California. She is so gifted at capturing life and love and play as it is naturally unfolding. Love her perspective and style.
Travel Photography by Dmitrii Lezine Specializing in HDR. Beautiful, beautiful work. This site has been known to instantly lower high blood pressure. It probably brings expedia some business too. 🙂
Have Bag, Will Travel Man, is Andrew Petcher livin’ my dream. He’s been everywhere I’ve ever been and many of the places I’d like to go. It’s a well-written blog with pleasing images that make me feel like I’m transported to faraway locales. Good stuff!
