Yo Amigo,

How about a "TRAVEL" gallery? - which could include anything travel related - such as: gorgeous beaches, famous landmarks, ancient sights, scenery, buildings, exotic sunsets, local-indigenous peoples, cultural items, etc.

Hmm. I don't think the title 'travel' is really relevant to a site that has members from all over the world. The beach that you travelled 10,000 miles to photograph is likely to be another member's local beach.

Maybe what I could do is have some sub categories in the landscape section to cover beaches, landmarks etc. How about that?

You are the gaffer around here - so I'll be happy with what I can get :ugeek:

However, on a technical note - travel psychology research shows that 'intangible emotional attachment' is a relevent associated factor in determining behavior whilst on vacation/travelling, etc....and, as ART is an expression of both objective and underlying "subjective" mechanisms...I believe that TRAVEL is a valid category for photography, regardless of whether or not, some readers may indeed be local to the destination shot taken. A visitor to any location will have a completely different psychological-based slant on their approach to picture taking, than would a local resident.

KEV :idea:

Yes - The 'underlying creational motivation' will be different - which in turn, influences both human emotion, perception & behavior. For example, a first time visitor to southern Spain (on a lifetime dream vacation) - will ultimately view/see/experience the area much differently than you would, or a native who has lived in the region all their life. Therefore, the epistemology behind the photographic expression is indeed a category within the TRAVEL phenomena in itself, and of course unique to that individual.

Another example, would be that Holocaust survivers will experience a trip to Auswich much differently than someone who had never been in the camp - and therefore, their photographic or artistic 'enterpretation' of it would also be unique in a categorical sense.. Thus it could be labelled 'Holocaust Serviver" photography. This is why many universities & colleges actually teach 'travel photography' as a specific subject or course.

Aah! I love the smell of philosophy in the morning.

OK 'travel' it is then.
