On a trip to the Philippines in 2002, I took my first digital travel photos. Of the thousands of pictures taken during that trip, only one would stand out (see my Sunset in Mindoro post). After that trip, the camera did not get a lot of use. Fast forward to 2007 when I take my second trip to Australia and take this photo of Mona Vale beach in Sydney. It’s the second digital photo that I’m particularly fond of. I don’t know if it’s the perspective or perhaps the emotions tied to this picture but to me, its a special one.
