Reading back on my Travel Photography page here, it all seems so quaint. Photo storage devices; portable hard drives. I wrote that content last March, now it is outdated.
Cloud computing makes all of this unnecessary. You can store all – or your most important images in the cloud and not have to take the time to backup to an external device.
When I was developing his site earlier this year, my client Francois at the Saint Barth Dental Association introduced me to Dropbox. Dropbox gives you 5 gigs of free cloud storage. As you refer friends or add devices, you get more storage.

The older I get, the more meaningful I want my travel experiences. The likelihood of taking a dedicated beach vacation is nil. If I opt for a beach locale, there is surely excellent snorkeling or sightseeing like Mayan ruins nearby.
I’m not knocking beach vacations, everyone needs to relax, but sometimes you want more.
Now that I’ve managed to stay at a company long enough to earn 4 weeks of vacation, I have the luxury of taking different types of trips throughout the year. The days of needing a week planted on a chaise lounge to recover from a year of work are hopefully over.

"Unsweetened Iced Tea and Ketchup" Hole in the Wall Cafe, Orleans, MA by Ernie Larsen©

Well, here it is February (almost March). If you received a holiday gift of a new camera, by now you should have at least a working knowledge of its capabilities and all the inherent idiosyncrasies sorted.
No? Well don’t be ashamed or feel inadequate – every time I pick up my “new” Canon G12 I find something in one of the programs I swear I’d never seen before. It is mind-boggling how much “stuff” is included in the computers/microchips of these compact light keepers and the great results that are possible!
