I thought this was a cool shot from the back of the taxi in Nha Trang. You can clearly see that it's been raining... which unfortunately was the hallmark of our trip. You can also see all the motorbikes. What a cool place.
This shot may not be my best, but I just thought it looked interesting with the reflection in the water and the turtles in the foreground.
Hopefully this weekend I'll be getting a new digital camera... and when that happens... all bets are off! I also think I'm going to Hong Kong for Chinese New Year, so if that happens, I hope to get some amazing shots... lets hope I don't bring rain there too.
Today I discovered flickr.com. This is a very fun site for photography enthusiasts. Not only is it a web album, but it allows for lots of interaction with other users. I've already joined three groups. There are many groups for all sorts of photography and photographers.

Here's today's photo:
This was taken in the Templo Motivo de Maipú in Santiago de Chile. I really like how all you can see are the windows because it was so dark in this part of the church.
I came across this interesting scene only feet from the giant Buddha statue at Long Son Temple in Nha Trang. They were all standing around this chicken in such a way that I had to wonder if it was going to be dinner.
While in NhaTrang, we took a rainy day to go on a tour of the city. Our first stop was Long Son Temple. We climbed the stairs to find these gargantuan statues of the Buddha.

While it fortunately wasn't raining while we were here, the skies were ominously gray. I think I've decided I don't like photographing when the skies are like this. wouldn't this photo be amazing with a brilliant blue sky behind? Too bad we didn't see any brilliant blue skies during our time in NhaTrang.
Ho Chi Minh City is a city filled with motorbikes like nothing I could have ever imagined in my wildest dreams. With few exceptions, the only cars on the road belong to taxis and trucks. Everything else is motorbikes. To pay homage to this phenomenon, I have dedicated this post the motorbikes of Vietnam.
Though I've taken 2 photography courses, I still am far from being a halfway decent photographer. That being said, I do a lot of traveling and I'd like to be able to show off my photos and say "I took this shot" someday. This blog is mainly so I can get critiques from people out there in the world. Please feel free to tell me what you like and don't like. Any help would be appreciated.
