A Collection of Our Favorite Photos from 2006

By: leelefever on January 6, 2007 - 10:51am

As we’re closing up, I wanted to share a small collection of our favorite photos from the trip. As I posted recently, we took over 14,000 photos over the course of the year, all with a point-and-shoot camera (a Pentax Optio WP).  Like all our photos, these are untouched with the exception of minor cropping.

 If you’d like to browse more photos, the “photos” keyword brings together our dispatches on this site. Also, you can see all our Top 20, top 220 and/or all 1500 photos we shared on Flickr.  

OK, on to our favorites:

 This is a Costume Play Kid in Harajuku, Tokyo, Japan.


Snow Flowers while dogsledding near Banff, Alberta, Canada. 


This little girl just happened to step right into place at the Amber Fort, Jaipur, India.



A violent curl at Kaena Point, Oahu, Hawaii


 A Mongolian Horseman on the Mongolian Steppe. Part of the Trans-Siberian railway.


Kabal Chai Waterfall near Sihanoukville, Cambodia


Cyclo in the monsoon, Hoi An, Vietnam


Thai Boy Fishing Near Bangkok, Thailand


Romance with guitar, Cadaques, Spain.

Really spectacular photos. I especially am enjoying the one of the sprouts in the snow. I am amazed at how close you were able to get without disturbing the snow or causing it to melt from breath.
