OT: Favorite Non Cruise Photograph

Recommended Posts

Everyone's photos are so awesome!! This is my most "treasured" photo. I do need to explain it though. I was on a short-term mission trip to Haiti and we traveled north to the island of Tortuga. The poverty there is beyond words. We took a group of children into a building to play and have crafts, etc. However, a very hard lesson to learn in places such as Haiti is the fact that you cannot help EVERYONE. These children learn at a very young age that there is just not enough to go around.

While playing with the ones inside, I looked toward the back of the building where there was a hole in the concrete wall. There I saw the faces of these children watching us! I snapped that picture in a split second...before I had a chance to really think about it. When I reflect on that picture, I am reminded of the impovershed people in the world, not just in Haiti, but everywhere.

I hope this picture is not too much of a "downer" for this thread. I think it really reflects how the camera does not take the picture, but the eye of the person does.






This touches my heart. Thanks for sharing. Linda

This is probably not my all time favorite, but I like the colors and the bird's attitude. Plus it is probably one of the best shots I've taken with my new camera. 2934915060101542478S600x600Q85.jpg

These are two of my favorite photos. Both were taken on Maui, Hawaii. The first is a picture I took last October at Mount Haleakala and the second is a photo I snapped on a whale watch just off Kaanapali Beach on Maui. That is the island of Lanai in the background.

Kween Karen:


Here is what I do to make my pictures show up larger: Go to webshots.com. Sign up - it's free. download the pictures you want to use. Then go to my albums on webshots. Double click on the picture you want to use. Scroll down on the page. On the bottom right is a section that says "link to this picture." Click on the 600 pixel size. Then highlight the "post in a forum" address. Then right click and copy. Go to what you are writing in cruisecritic and right click and "paste" the address. Preview your post to be sure your picture is showing up correctly.


Hope this helps! Linda

Not sure, but that eye might belong to a friend of this fellow ... :eek:




This was taken at the Woodland Zoo in Seattle, WA - Komodo Dragon. I'm just glad there was plate glass between him and me :D




Took this at the Memphis Zoo.....anybody know who belongs to this eye?
