I like to go places.
I like to see things when I go places.
Otherwise, why go?!
Often, when I travel, I’m working a good part of the time.
And by working, I mean I’m at a conference,
Or in meetings,
Or at a seminar,
Or meeting up with other photographers and/or bloggers to discuss some type of project,
Or possibly actually working on a particular project with the people I’m meeting with.

In the above photo, I particularly love the woman in the purple tank top, seen in the background.
She looks SO touristy. It makes me smile every time I look at her.

It’s fun to see different places, and explore what they’re all about.

Every city has its own special, unique, things to offer.
“What’s different here?” I ask myself over and over again.
Not for photography purposes,
But because the joy of traveling is in seeing/exploring/experiencing the things you can’t see at home.

It doesn’t matter if I’m visiting someplace far away, or local.
It’s all about what’s different from what I have in my day to day life.

I’m looking forward to returning to San Francisco next week.
It’s going to be a crazy-busy week.
Most of my time will be spent at the conference, not sight seeing.
If the conference gets dull, I won’t hesitate to play hookie.
I’ll bring you right along with me, of course.
