I think it was Susan Sontag who said: “I haven’t been everywhere yet, but it’s on my list.”
I’ve been lucky enough to have travelled a fair bit in my life — to southeast Asia, parts of Europe and Africa, Ireland, England and all over the Caribbean — but I still have a long, long list of places I want to visit before I kick the bucket.
Let’s see, there’s Iceland, Scotland, Wales, some of the islands around England, beautiful Vancouver Island, San Francisco, Norway, Oregon, more of the Canadian North, and that’s just the beginning….
So while I figure out how and when I’m going to accomplish all that, but I also like to immerse myself in blogs that feature places on my list and do a bit of dreaming.
And not only is it fun to travel for real, and vicariously online, I also enjoy taking trips and flights of fancy in my imagination. Here’s a recent voyage I took with the help of Photoshop.
I combined two very different photos here into a composite to create this postcard of an imaginary place. If you click on the image you’ll see which photos I used. I used textures from Kim Klassen to create the vintage look.
How about you? Where has your imagination dreamed up lately? What wonderful places do you think I should I add to my list?
