As a travel blogger, I’m keen on focussing on creating trip reports and reviews of hotels, airlines and restaurants. Part of that process involves taking pictures of whatever it is…thus leading to the hard (and most awkward) thing any travel blogger has to do.
Sitting in a crowded airport lounge, I really want to take pictures of the seating options and food displays. However, there’s packed crowds and passengers milling about everywhere – and I feel awkward needing to take pictures, not wanting to look like I’m trying to snap photos of any one specific person.
It’s almost bound to happen, but there’s always someone starring right at you, wondering what your doing. You’re in line to grab a drink, or some cheese from the food spread, and you’ve got your camera phone precariously in your hands to as not to look conspicuous, but still hold it steady enough to capture a clear shot – and the guy behind you is wondering why in the world you are taking a picture of a plate of cheese and a glass of wine. What’s even worse is trying to take a picture of food on a plane – the person sitting next to you is wondering why you just turned on your overhead to take a picture, and then shutting it back off again. Or, not eating until they pass around the bread basket so you can get a complete shot. 🙂 Yeah, first world problems, I know…
Maybe it’s only a “problem” I have, but it strikes me every time I’m trying to review a public space, that this thought pops into my head. In any event, I felt it musing enough to write about it and throw it out there in case you happen to see me along the way somewhere and I’m taking pictures faster than the Paparazzi.
Fellow travel bloggers, please chime in. Do you find this equally as awkward to do as I do?
