Time to travel

Thanks a Million, PhotowalksTV fans

It occurred this 7 days:

I was attending the WPPI convention in Las Vegas, a assembly of wedding and portrait photographers, when I obtained an e-mail from VidIQ, a YouTube analytics instrument.

“Congratulations, you reached 1,000,000 views.”

Or, let’s set it this way: Immediately after five a long time (first episode posted 3/26/2018) of beating the drum for PhotowalksTV, my journey images collection on YouTube, the blended sights now tops 1 million.

In the annals of YouTube, this number may well not look so big, but in my small world, it is large. It’s validation for the idea born appropriate in this article in Manhattan Seaside for a distinct variety of travel demonstrate that marries our really like of roaming with fascination with smartphones and acquiring improved holiday vacation shots. (Thank you Invoice Weiner for serving to to crystalize the principle!)

The collection is created in a Manhattan Seashore garage (edited and archived) when the output is out on the street. On the other hand, we do the new Thursday afternoon Dwell version from the garage, by the magic of eCamm computer software. 

We have traveled the entire world, from Paris to Portugal, from Madrid and Seville Spain to Tokyo, and from a distant British Columbia island to the old/new city of Lyon France. We have been to numerous states, which includes Washington, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, Ga and Florida, and a complete great deal in California. In the South Bay, we have lined Manhattan Beach front, Hermosa, Redondo, Palos Verdes and San Pedro and been up and down the California coastline, from San Diego to Mendocino. (We even did an episode on ER when it moved to its new digs.) 

The most viewed episodes (so significantly:) Pismo SeashoreMorro BayRiversidePalm SpringsSan PedroOregon CoastSilver LakeSanta Fe, New MexicoNewport, Oregon and the great L.A. Deli walk.

Together with what sort of digital camera to buy, ought to I get the new Iphone now or hold out, and who helps make that selfie adhere you generally walk about with: where’s the finest place you have at any time been to?

I can say, quite conveniently, that it’s tough to major Paris, which is conveniently the finest town in the earth. The architecture, the background, the sights and sure, even the folks. How can you not love functioning close to with your digicam in a city where by each individual street provides a distinct experience?

Right after I posted on LinkedIn about crossing 1 million sights, Marci McCue wrote this: “Wow! So fortunate to be a part of your journey… from graffiti partitions, to small towns… watching the weather transform at Manhattan seashore, heading on highway excursions throughout the place and even touring other countries! It is so entertaining to see all these locations by means of your lens.” That’s the most effective remark ever! Thank you Marci (and Mike!)

We have obtained several fun points in the operates. Upcoming week I’ll just take you to the garage roofs of Las Vegas (I went to much more than 15 of them for study) for the ideal photograph spots of Sin City, we’re headed again to Japan to examine Osaka and have a western summer months journey that will get us to Badlands National Park and stick to up in the fall with Scotland.
