Before You Mess Up That Hotel Room. . .

The last couple times I have traveled, I have made a deliberate effort to haul out my camera before I unpack my bags and strew my things around my hotel room. When I can hold back from making a mess of my room long enough to take a photo or two, I have been rewarded with some nice shots.

Of course, these are good for memories, and they make me appreciate all the hard work that goes into making a hotel room look inviting, but they just might sell, too. So, the next time you find yourself in a pristine hotel room, think about tucking your bags out of sight, and capturing the feeling of the room. . .

My husband asked me just yesterday if I did anything without taking pictures of it for Dreamstime... :) I've taken hotel room pictures as well - just have to be careful about those logos. Of course, in the bush you didn't need to worry about that too much.

Hah-hah! Yes, and the time we spend packing before a trip, agonizing over batteries, chargers, mem cards. . .

I am hoping too that I have more safari shots in my collection. I have some in the queue, and others almost ready for submission. Thanks for asking.

Before You Mess Up That Hotel Room ...
yeah, and before you eat that lunch ...
and before you say to kids, go and clean up yourselves ...
and before you take your backpack and run to catch your travelmates ...
Would it be fair that photographers would have twice the time other people have? I think it would.
Anyway, you must have had a great trip. I hope we can see more safari shots in your portfolio. :)

Thanks, Marilyn! This is one of those things you need to do asap once you step through the door. By the time your toothbrush and novel are visible, it's too late :)

Hey Charles, great suggestion! In addition, love your lodgings in Africa, oh my, so inviting!
