Eastern European Photo Excursion Outtakes

metraincameraI’m back in North Carolina after an incredible and personally rewarding travel experience that took me to New York, Vienna, Bratislava and then Prague.

I love to travel, however it can be physically demanding and stressful at times, especially when you’re trying to figure out the local currency exchange rate or navigating your way through unfamiliar airports and train stations. Of course it can also be exhilarating and exciting wandering through European cities and villages with my camera in hand.

It was great to be able to mix business with pleasure on this last trip.  Vasa Project Director Roberto Muffoletto put me up at his apartment in Vienna for most of the trip in exchange for photographing and writing about some of the photographic exhibitions opening in Vienna for Transmedia,  in addition to being one of the photographic reviewers in Bratislava for the International Month of Photography.

Side note….”Transmedia’s mission is to Connect individuals and communities on a global scale who have interest in media studies, art, photography and digital media arts. “

Eastern Europe has such a rich history and is one of my favorite travel destinations.  I love the cuisine, excellent public transportation systems, wonderful museums, art and photo galleries and of course the hospitality and friendliness of the people.  This past month has been filled with great experiences that I’ll never forget.  One of my favorite things to do is just spend the day exploring a city like Vienna or Prague with may camera.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It

Here are my “outtakes” from this last trip. Enjoy! Click on any of the photos to enlarge and/or view in slide show.
