The Expeditioner’s “Animals Of The World” August Photography Contest Winner

Thursday, September 2, 2010

This month’s contest theme stood out as soon as we ironed out our schedule. The world is full of wonder, and certainly the animal kingdom is one source of endless awe. That being said, we would like to congratulate Kimondo as this month’s winner, for the dramatic shot titled: “Thirsty Elephants.” Here’s what she had […]

August Photo Contest Finalists: Pigeons And Intrigue

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

This past month’s photo contest theme was “Urban Jungle,” and what’s more urban than pigeons and mystery? A city is not just its interesting architecture, cultural idiosyncrasies and masses of people, but someplace where unique characters live in the shadows of tall buildings and a place where the wild things have adapted. A country’s rural […]

The Expeditioner’s “Urban Jungle” Travel Photo Winner

Monday, August 9, 2010

This month’s gem comes from Europe’s second northernmost capital city, Helsinki, Finland. Receiving the most first place votes, “Flash Flood” makes me feel like I’m in a movie. The kind of movie I’m standing next to a phone booth in a long trench coat, under an umbrella with a rain soaked damsel on my arm. […]

Asian Destinations To Escape The Photo Snapping Hordes

Friday, July 30, 2010

I just giggled a little. Not an awww, that’s-so-cute giggle, but more of a, that’s-a-little-ridiculous giggle. I’ll tell you why. During my morning routine — wake up, coffee, spin through the local and national papers, twitter, TheExpeditioner, coffee, Facebook, coffee, dabble about the day’s travel writing — I found a photo essay which was the […]

June Photo Contest Finalists: In Your Face!

Friday, July 9, 2010

You may or may not remember the landscape and the architecture, but you will never forget a face — even if they are only in pictures. Last month’s photo theme, “Faces in Places,” has left an impression. There is something fascinating about a picture of a face. It makes the viewer curious about the story […]

The Expeditioner’s “Faces In Places” Photo Contest Winner

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

There’s just something about the people that inhabit this world we call home, isn’t there?  This month’s “Faces in Places” intriguing winner, “Wise Man,” comes from a trip through Varanasi, India. The photographer, Monica, says this about the shot: Varanasi, being a very chaotic place, I was amazed by this man who was just sitting there […]

Images of Ethiopia

Monday, June 28, 2010

By Ingetje Tadros Early this year I decided to travel to southern Ethiopia to photograph the members of the tribes that call that area of the country home. After looking for some help on Google, I ended up with a driver who’d never been off-road before, with a guide who never showed up, and assisted […]

The Expeditioner’s May Photo Contest Finalists

Friday, June 11, 2010

We entered the month of May in search of some of the most spectacular shots of the world’s landscapes. Low and behold, we found many. It took a whole month just to sift through and come to a consensus over, in my opinion, some of the most stunning snapshots of this big, beautiful Earth. Ode […]

The Expeditioner’s May Photo Contest Winner: Landscape

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Our first themed photo contest of “Landscapes,” has absolutely blown us away. Now that all the final votes are in, we’d like to congratulate Kimondo for the shot, “Camels in Erg Chebbi.” I’m learning with these contests each month, that sometimes magic just simply happens. This photo is no exception. After being punished throughout a trek in […]

The Best Of Spain In Photos

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

What do you call a person who is obsessed with Spain? A Spainophile? A Spainaholic? A Spainophyte? (A google search of spainophyte resulted in a result that asked whether I meant “sporophyte,” “The spore-producing phase in the life cycle of a plant that exhibits alternation of generations.”) Either way, for those who love Spain and […]
