Golden Gate Pre and Post Fog

San Francisco is known for its fog (it even has a name, Karl, and a Twitter handle). It’s no surprise, then, that part of the fun in visiting the city is in comparing the landmarks before and after the mists drift in.

Here is the Golden Gate bridge on a sunny day, and then on a foggy day. The fog changes the feel of the city entirely, adding what to me seems like a spooky ambiance to what was previously a normal street. It’s like getting two cities in just one visit!

The Perfect Travel Photo Accessory

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads

Looking through photos from my recent travels, I’m most struck by the ones where the scene in question is set off against something that brings it to the foreground. There are so many great sights out in this world, that the added contrast to the sight itself – ruins, water or otherwise – makes it that much more memorable.

Take, for example, a recent trip to Rome. The ruins, beautiful in their own right, are made that much more special under a full moon:

and my favourite, the Colosseum:

Which leads me to the conclusion that the perfect travel photo accessory is a full moon.

What about you? Is there something you try to frame in many of your photos as you travel?
