Claude Monet’s Garden is located about 1.5 hours outside of Paris. If you are spending some time in Paris or the north of France, this striking garden is something to put on your travel itinerary. I had spent an afternoon in Giverny visiting the grounds and taking pictures as quickly as my camera would allow. It is a gorgeous space and if you are looking to bring back some concepts for your own garden (or purchase some seeds to plant) Monet has you covered.
Winter in Iceland, experiencing the darkness and chasing the Northern Lights felt like an adventure worth having. So, why not pack that adventure into a 48 hour excursion to the middle of the Atlantic in November? No reason not to, really. So a 4 hour and 45 minute red-eye flight later (basically the time it takes to fly across the US) I touched down in Keflavik International Airport.
And as I stepped out of the airport into 50 mph gusts of wind and driving rain, in that moment, I was happy.
I decided to head down south to the city of Charleston, South Carolina. Flight times come in just under 2 hours (2 hours out and 1.5 hours back!) Having never been to Charleston, I chose to stay downtown in the historic district to be close to landmark locations on my list of places to see.
I learned a few things on my trip to the Palmetto City. First and foremost, Charleston is a city that forces you to make a lot of decisions. Shall I get another order of Shrimp and Grits? I already tried She Crab Soup, but should I get another bowl. Do I spend a day on a boat in the harbor or walking around taking pictures and visiting historical landmarks around town? An afternoon on the beach or marshland? Fishing or Kayaking?
Whether you have a Apple, Android or other type of phone (so long as it has a camera) you are set for some weekend photography sessions around the city. Or you can get your DSLR and head out your front door to take advantage of the endless photographic opportunities around the city.
Whether you have a DSLR or smartphone, photo opportunities present themselves all the time in New York. You might stumble across some frozen camel milk at a grocery store on 42nd and 11th avenue or find your way across the George Washington Bridge for an afternoon hike in the Palisades. Walking around let’s you experience all this great city has to offer (and will give you some things to circle back on and visit for a more in-depth visit the next time around.)
I went through the Full Access NYC instagram feed and pulled 32 of our favorite photos from 2015. We started the year with some real cold and snow. Spring and Summer allowed us to get in some community gardening, fishing in Central Park and nice bike rides along the Hudson River. Fall brought vibrant colors and neighborhood exploratory walks. Winter came again but has been mild and allowed us to get in some additional outdoor activities before our annual 2 month hibernation for the start of 2016.

New York is photogenic. You can spend day and night taking pictures around the city from every angle and it still feels like you are just scratching the surface.
