GoPro Hero3 Camera Black Edition

by Beth Whitman (January 10th, 2014)

For those who aren’t yet familiar with them, GoPros are high definition video and film cameras often used for shooting extreme action. The ultra-wide angle lens provides a 170 degree view. With such a wide angle, the image is pretty stable, even under very active conditions. While it’s most popular for what it can produce […]

Papua New Guinea Mt. Hagen Festival

by Beth Whitman (August 27th, 2012)

The first time I went to Papua New Guinea, I could barely speak for 24 hours after I arrived home. I didn’t know what to say. What I had seen was unfathomable and 3 years and 3 trips later, it’s still sinking in for me. What makes PNG so remarkable is that the 850 tribes […]

Bhutan Re-imagined ~ Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (March 30th, 2012)

Remember that photo workshop in Hawaii I mentioned last week? I think it might have sunk in! This is my 7th trip to Bhutan and while I never feel like I’ve seen it all, I do find myself taking fewer photos because I know what I’ve got in my stockpile already. But on the first […]

Photo Safari on Hawaii Island ~ Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (March 23rd, 2012)

First, let it be known that I do not consider myself a photographer. I have the good fortune to travel to some pretty amazing destinations. True. And when I point my camera, sometimes I can capture some nice images. But I would say that many times, I’m just lucky. I think I can razzle dazzle […]

Volcanoes on Hawaii Island ~ Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (March 16th, 2012)

I know it’s all grainy and such, but you have to trust me how absolutely cool it is to see the glow at night coming from the Halemaumau Crater in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii. This is viewable from the overlook at the Jaggar Museum, just a short drive from the park’s entrance. During the […]

Photo of the Day ~ Papua New Guinea (food)

by Beth Whitman (February 24th, 2012)

Curious minds want to know about the food in Papua New Guinea. I mean, what could cannibals eat for daily sustenance, right? I kid! The breakfast image above is one of my favorite pics of food in Papua New Guinea because of the great view from my bench seat at the hotel’s restaurant. I just […]

Best of Hawaii – Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (February 10th, 2012)

Maybe it’s because it’s February and I’m in Seattle. Maybe it’s because I’ve had a couple of invitations to visit Hawaii in the last couple of weeks. Whatever the reason, my mind has been drifting off to the islands. At night, as I lull myself to sleep, I’ve been designing our dream house in Hawaii. […]

Vietnam Buddhism – Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (February 3rd, 2012)

I was thinking about what aspect of Vietnam I love most. After having traveled there 8 times, I wouldn’t exactly call myself an “expert,” but I’ve become familiar with many aspects of the country – to the degree that I have such close friends there that I consider them my Vietnamese family. One of the […]

Panasonic Lumix Camera – WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (June 1st, 2011)

Panasonic Lumix Cameras I’ve been through a lot in terms of camera equipment. And I’ve been through a lot of camera equipment. In 2000 I took a business trip to Italy and carried probably 20 pounds of Canon gear with me including a 300mm image stabilizer lens (the photographers out there might be impressed with […]

Buddhist Prayer Bowls: Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (October 7th, 2010)

When you visit the Reclining Buddha in Bangkok, you’ll notice a row of prayer bowls along one wall of the building, along the back side of the Buddha. For good karma, you can purchase/donate about $1 in exchange for 108 coins. As you walk along this wall you place the coins, plink plink plink, into […]
