Photographic Memory

As I mentioned in my recent post  Pack Your Sketchbook, I enjoy bringing home personal, visual  souvenirs  from my travels. I prefer a souvenir that isn’t the cookie cutter tourist-y items that the (insert your destination city here) locals sell you. However, the  souvenirs  I enjoy are something you can create that will last much longer than the standard I Love NY tee.

That being said, bring your CAMERA. Take pictures, shoot video, capture memories and remember the good times because unlike the title of this post, most of us do no have a “Photographic Memory.” I try to capture as many photos as I can without compromising the trip itself. On my recent trip to New York City, New York I brought along two cameras. The first being a Canon 5D (Thanks Ed) and the second was my good ol’ Canon G10. If you want some good pointers about what to pack in your camera bag… read Ed’s post. If you don’t have a fancy DSLR or a high end point and shoot, use what you have. The quality of the photo doesn’t matter as much as actually capturing the memories.

I could go on and on about the benefits of packing your camera. Instead, I’m going to let some photos from my recent trip to The Big Apple do the talking:

  1. Love this!!! And I totally agree, all of my fave 'souvenirs' are things I either shot with a camera or picked up at random (like coasters / fliers from cool bars, etc.). One thing I wish I was better at – taking and stitching together panoramic shots. A skill to work on 🙂

  2. Maybe I should make a post on how to do a panoramic… Great Idea! I took a panoramic in Central Park and will be adding it to Flickr at a later date. I appreciate the kind words!

  3. Great pics, Ben! It 's super hard to capture the "hustle and bustle" of NYC. You did it well!

  4. Hi! I am a freelance information broker. I usually perruse websites for customers who want to find people, businesses, or academic institutions for the exchange of information and web presence develpment. I review allot of sites in the pursuit of my clients. Your site is one of the more infomative and well put together. I just wanted to say thanks for providing honest, thoughtful, and useful content. Your vene is a far cry from much of the trash that populates the cyber universe. Thanks again!

  5. The company brokerages network will give you access to a large pool of people who have the details about companies for sale and buyers or investors searching for any organization venture. By making good use from the info you’ve, you may be cutting a provide and make a handsome profit out from the transactions.

  6. Lindsay Lohan seems so far removed from reality that she will publicize her own clothing line on her way to court Sept. 24. The 24-year-old actress wore her 6126 clothing line, sporting a black 6126 blazer, which she also paired with an innocent white skirt and black lacy top. We’ll admit, she looked good — but she dressed more like she was going out to one of her usual night haunts, rather than appearing before the law. Clearly, her promiscuous choice in self-designed clothing didn’t sway the judge…and now she’s in an orange jumpsuit until Oct. 22! Are you going to do what Lindsay can’t, run out and get some of her 6126 court apparel
