As I've been planning our vacation to San Francisco at the end of the month, I've found myself reflecting on past trips that have really inspired me. The beautiful sights, the new sensations, the wonderful people; all of these things are absorbed and mined for story elements later on. Here's a few of my favorite memories:
Colorado mountains are just amazing.
The Duomo in Florence. It's so incredible, and a little scary going up.
View from the top, after the 460+ stairs (worth it).
I love photographing statuary close-ups, an easy hobby in Italy. This one was in a small sea-side park in Sorrento.
Ahh, Venice. 'Nuff said.
Stilt walkers in Dusseldorf. Those guys were a blast!
The view from our hotel in the middle of Queen's Day festivities in Haarlem, the Netherlands. We didn't sleep much that trip, LOL.
Obscure German castles, anyone?
What travels have inspired or benefited your craft? Is there a particular destination that has influenced your work or sparked an idea? I'm also still gathering ideas for my San Francisco trip - let me know where you like to go in the Golden City.
