Flood Photos - January 2011

It is always interesting to see photos and blogs by a TravelBlog blogger, and to read their take on topics which are heavily in the news. Reply to this

These are both on the front page at the moment... (16/01/2011)... I think they both show an extraordinary ability at creative writing and both sucked me right into the moment and locus they were being written about.

I read 'Those that roam the Arctic wastes', a couple days ago and would like to take this opportunity to return a compliment; ''It's not often that a blog is so original, interesting and well-written that it sticks in my mind for a long time after I've read it..."

“If the past is a foreign country, nostalgia has made it a foreign country with the healthiest visitor trade of all” (Lowenthal, 1990:4). For obvious reasons, in the case of 'The Arctic Wastes' I don’t think there will be a lot of visitor trade on the ground; however, I’m certain there will be a lot of visitor trade living vicariously through your adventures.

On a separate note, I read this quote the other day, “tourists are consumers, not anthropologists ” Whether we believe him or not, I think either as a tourist you would be the exception, or else you are shedding the traits of tourist.

Johnny Yagers photos have become really nice, since he became a featured blogger. This is something that sometimes happens when bloggers hit the Front Page. It sometimes makes me wonder if the blogger got a new camera, but I think it is more that they make a special effort because they will now have more viewers.

Here is one of his Featured Blogs, with great photos of Paris.

I just posted this on the blogger of the week page but now see it would be better featured here.

This blogger has a wonderfully unique and creative writing style. I hope she will start adding photos as she could easily end up on the front page. http://www.travelblog.org/Asia/China/Shanghai/Xuhui/blog-551495.html Reply to this

On my hunt I found a real treasure. This gentleman is not only an excellent artist and photographer but his prose is raw, open and rather poetic.

I love the blog. I'm ready to book a trip to listen to the quiet and see the beauty.
