See that post just below of my daughter on a play pay phone? She was exploring Japan in the Global Village at The Children’s Museum, Seattle. When I’m out on a family day I do try to capture a lot of photos of my child. However, I also like to photograph the details to keep all the photos in context.

Not all of your vacation photos have to have people in the frame. Don’t forget to capture the details as well. You’ll enjoy experiencing your trip again through your photographs.
