We know, we know...we're late! We were so busy taking travel photos that we forgot to wish everyone a happy National Camera Day! June 29 was the holiday, and to celebrate, we've put together a list of our favorite destinations to photograph:
- Sri Lanka—The island of Sri Lanka is packed with diversity and cultural heritage just waiting to be photographed. But be careful, taking photos of Buddhist imagery is considered disrespectful, and it is forbidden to be photographed with statues and murals. The beaches, landscapes, people and all-around scenery are stunning, though, so bring extra film!
- Curaçao—This Dutch gem is loaded with Old World European history. The pastel-colored buildings create unique backdrops to the main city, Willemstad, and the island has almost forty beaches where you can make some photographic memories.
- Kenya—Put on your safari hat and head to Nairobi, the safari capital of Africa. Not far outside the city is Nairobi National Park, where you can get your fix of nature and wildlife. The park even hosts a herd of endangered black rhinoceroses. Maybe they'll pose for a snapshot!
- Grand Canyon, AZ—If international travel is out of the question, add photographing the Grand Canyon to your bucket list. The sunrises and sunsets on the red-rock landscape are unbeatable. You can hike the national park and take spectacular photos every step of the way.
