What type of vacation picture are you?

What type of vacation picture are you?

Some people love to take pictures on vacation and some don’t. But those who do, they usually take the same style of pictures. Have you noticed? Take a look at your photo album. What style are your pictures?

As some of you, I love to look through my friends holiday photo album on facebook for some inspiration but I have to admit that sometime it’s annoys the hell out of me! Why?

For an exemple when someone has been to China and only uploaded pictures of her/himself in a so called selfie…that makes me so frustrated!

Or when someone shows only pictures of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Three meals per day for everyday in her/his two weeks vacation in Spain…sign!

Inspite of everything, these pictures are better than no picture at all! And if I have to be honest, I’m not better myself but when I upload my photos on facebook I try to atleast upload different types of photos!


Here are a couple of photo styles you can find in my holiday album!

 Food with a view-picture

Food is one of the reasons why we travel! There must be atleast couple of local food pictures with or without a nice view! (even if spaghetti with tomatoe sauce is not what people expect to have in India)

 Talk to the back-picture

My favorite! A landscape picture with someone from behind. Good for camera shy people who doesn’t want to pose for a photo! 90% of my photos of David are talk to the back-picture.



Another favorite! When David doesn’t want to cooporate or play a photographer I just stick out my legs just to show that atleast I was there!


Jumping pictures were my favorites but I don’t jump anymore because I discovered the talk to the back or carefree pictures are much nicer..lol.



While talk to the back-picture is for shy people this style is for someone who actually want to be in the picture but are trying their best just to look careless as much as possible like:

Oh, you are taking a picture of me? I didn’t noticed!



You just need to upload some of these landscapes pictures to show that you don’t need to be in all the photos!



The picture of the incredible waterfalls….and youself in the centre of the picture blocking the view! Very rare that I take selfie but I have nothing against family groupfies!



Just an ordinary family photo! Us being behind/infront/next to/up/under something with a big smile!



Must have some architecture pictures in the album!



Awwwee! My biggest hobby of all time is to snorkel and scuba diving so it comes naturally that I love taking pictures of these sweet creatures!



I love animals but I like less to take pictures of them for some reason. But I do have some amazing photos of wild animals.

What I wear today-picture

I have zero outfit-picture. No matter how pretty I feel that particular day I never take a photo of me for that reason. But I do have a bunch of them of Mirabelle, for family members to see.



I love to get close up with people but unfortunally I don’t take them a lot because sometimes it is scary to walk up to a stranger and ask if you can take a shot of their face.


So please next time you are uploading pictures for your friends to see, can you include more pictures than just food?

    Excellent photography diversity! My absolute favorite of the bunch is the very first photo of the shoes looking out on the view.
    I also try to take as many variations of pics as possible…often times playing with perspective and shooting from the ground up or a child’s perspective to add additional variety.

    What an interesting post idea!

    I’m definitely guilty of all of these! I love your large mix of photography skills and how you will happily flip amongst them all, shows that you see the world in so many different ways rather than through just one lense.

    Happy travels!

    What a fun post. I’ve definitely taken every single one of these pictures. I was reading this and though, it’s funny but a neat way to tie us travelers together.
