Giveaway – Win a Printastic Photobook!

THE COMPETITION HAS NOW ENDED BUT YOU CAN STILL USE THE DISCOUNT CODE ‘BUNNY10‘ FOR A 10% DISCOUNT

I don’t know about you but I’m a massive Instagram fan. I love taking photos on my mobile phone on the spur of the moment and as the whim takes me. It’s pretty instant and there’s no need to fiddle about with lenses or camera settings and my phone is always close by in my bag or pocket. I just click, share and I’ve captured a little moment in time.

But here’s the rub, as much as I love Instagraming and taking photos on my phone, that’s usually where they stay – I’ve just checked and there’s over 1,000 photos floating around in the depths of my smart phone’s memory and that’s without the ones on the cloud. So now I’m on a mission to free my photos from my phone. I’ve decided to collate all my best Instagrams and phone photos into a yearly photo book. That way I can look back year by year and go through all the special moments and travel highlights in one gorgeous book. It’s the perfect reminder of the year and so much better than some of those tacky trip souvenirs which get pushed to the back of the cupboard – and, yes, I’m guilty on that count too.

Printastic Photobooks

Say hello to Printastic, a new app that makes it really easy to add all your favourite phone and/or IG photos to your book, directly from your phone and Instagram feed. All you need to do is make sure you have the latest version of Printastic installed on your iPhone or iPad. Printastic makes it simple to create a bespoke book with up to 200 pages. You can adjust the page layouts with one to four photos per page, re-order them to get the best look and even add captions. I think it would make the perfect gift for someone and is spot on for my (not so) little project. The app is completely free to download from the App Store. It’s only currently available as an iOS but there’s an Android version in the pipeline.

#ExploreTheElements

Never one to turn down an excuse to delve into my photo archives and re-live some fabulous travel memories I was delighted when Suze, the Luxury Columnist, nominated me for the Thomas Cook Explore the Elements Photoblogging Competition.  The competition is themed around the four elements; Earth, Water, Fire, Air and it’s all about capturing and expressing these elements through travel photography.  All the categories are open to interpretation so pictures can be of anything that showcases each element.  Here are my entries…

Multiples

Multiples

I’m drawn to taking photographs of multiples and these feature frequently in my travel shots – I just can’t resist all those neat little rows.   The souks in Marrakech were full of stalls and shops displaying multiples from food to footwear and leathers to lanterns.  Here’s what I found…

This is my take on Ailsa’s Travel Theme

Travel Theme – Sunset

Travel Theme – Sunset

Ailsa from Where’s my Backpack? and host of the Travel Theme has chosen ‘Sunset’ as this weeks subject. I first saw it on Mahdu’s sunset post from The Urge to Wander and a comment struck a chord with me – no matter where in the world we might be we all watch the same sun as it sets.  It’s inspired me to join in this weeks theme with some sunset shots from my own travels.

I find it hypnotic to watch as the sun dips beneath the horizon and will never tire of a beautiful sunset; a time to pause and reflect on the beauty of our world.  Here are some of my favourite shots which I hope capture that magical moment.

A beautiful golden sunset in Mauritius and then  afterwards (below) as the deeper pinks colour the ocean against the moody clouds.

The sunset (below) was in Sorrento this year – we stopped by a small bar overlooking the sea where a crowd of regulars gathered each evening to watch the spectacle.  This deep red sunset was stunning.

The setting sun reflected on rocks near Sossusvlei, Namibia – not strictly a sunset but I loved the way the rocks took on the deep orange and russet hues of the sinking sun.

And finally a sunset from home taken in May this year.  It’s a bit grainy as it was taken on a compact and I’ve zoomed in and cropped hard but I like the misty feel of it – for some reason the sun was enormous that evening.

Photo Roulette Round 40 – The Results…

Photo Roulette Round 40 – The Results…

What a fun week I’ve had hosting Travel Photo Roulette and I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who entered, tweeted and publicised Round 40 and to Travel with Kat, host of round 39, for passing on the baton. It’s always a bit of a worry when you run an event – what if nobody turns up? I was, therefore, delighted that 16 bloggers submitted some fabulous shots. I thoroughly enjoyed, not only the photographs themselves, but ‘meeting’ some talented members of the travel blogging community along the way. (more…)

Happy to host Travel Photo Roulette – Round 40

I was a very happy travelbunny indeed to learn that my photo below was the winning entry in round 39 of Photo Roulette hosted by Travel With Kat with her chosen theme of ‘Local Character’.  This Vietnamese woman in Hoi An was more than happy to have her picture taken and she made me smile as she postured to the camera while I snapped away – definitely a character and a half with a full-blown twinkle in her eye.

Friday Photo – Hoi An Window

Friday Photo – Hoi An Window

I took this shot in Hoi An, Vietnam where many of the buildings are painted ochre yellow. The walls are still damp from the rain but the colours make it feel like the sun is shining.
