Use Timeless Photos To Showcase Your Favorite Adventures

Timely vs. Timeless

Last fall, this blog featured a living space that showcased photos taken during the State Fair of Texas (which is simply the best state fair in these United States, but we digress).

Those photos told a timely story of what it was like to attend the 2017 fair.

It's the type of post that gathers interest in the time of year (autumn) that the fair is held. But some might not really consider it as relevant at other times and not be interested in visiting it.

How Giraffes Drink

With that in mind, we have created a new evergreen showcase space - one that does not become dated soon after publication.

That means including photographs and an accompanying story that are timeless.

Hopefully it will be one that people will want to see whenever they happen to discover it.

A Little Background

Recently our family took a once in a lifetime (probably) trip to Africa, where we visited South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

This Is a Termite Mound. Be Very Afraid.

The junket was organized by Road Scholar, which seeks to inspire adults to learn, discover and travel.

It offers more than 5000 learning adventures in 150 countries and all 50 states, and serves more than 100,000 participants per year.

The trip we selected was "African Safari: A Close-up on Wildlife," a 15-day, 14-night adventure in which we and fifteen other people

  • stayed at hotels and game lodges in three different countries,
  • took more than a dozen open-air game drives at all times of the day and night
  • observed and experienced unique cultural activities
  • ate amazing food that we didn't even know existed
  • got up close and personal with lions, elephants, giraffes, and more
  • felt the spray from Victoria Falls, one of the world's great natural wonders
  • learned about termites, animal social behavior and the local history and geography

Between two SLR cameras and two smartphones, we took more than 1500 photographs to document our experience.

The Southern Africa Showcase 2017 living space (seen below at right) feature seventeen of our favorite pictures from the trip.

Included are a mix of animal photos, landscape shots and pictures of the general surroundings we encountered.

We have so many good images to share that we plan to update the living space regularly.

By doing so, we want to make it much like a real art gallery, with rotating exhibitions.

We know that many of you have exciting pictures of vacations or other family activities that you could showcase in a similar way.
