TRAVEL

Photography & Travels (with a compact camera)

I can blame travelling for sparking my interest in photography. I bought a digital camera for trips to Denmark and the Czech Republic, just to take pictures of what I saw. Then a year later, in 2005, I went to Iceland and it was so beautiful that I accidentally took some photos I thought were amazing. It made me want to improve as a photographer, so I could take more photos of a similar quality.
