Sure do, the ship and crew are all part of the vacation experience, and pics of the stateroom are always handy for future bookings.

If you work here, your camera seems to be always at the ready, to take a picture of something that you think someone here will want to see. I know I don't take enough, even though I think I did

We take pictures of our friends onboard but rarely of the ship itself. Lots of good pictures from karaoke and the Platters from our last cruise.

Henry, I take pictures of EVERYTHING! I try to think what CruiseMates want to know about a ship - the cabin size, the decor, the activities, the ports, and of course, the food. I photograph with my cruise review in mind, how to illustrate what I write about when I get home, and enjoy re-living my cruise when I do!

Yep, all of the above, take pics of just about anything. You know, the memories, etc...

I also purchase a few from the ship, but being very selective about those ones...

If it moves, video it. If it doesn't move, photograph it, eat it, or both

Talking Pictures of US

Well, mostly I take pictures of US enjoying what we are doing. Maybe it is ashore, maybe it is onboard. I really almost never bother to take pictures simply of something on the ship, or a site or scenery ashore, unless we are in it.

So often I see people taking pictures of a column, or a view, or a church ... and wonder why ... since a beautiful professionally taken and edited postcard of exactly the same scene is available in the gift shop for fifty cents!

Ah, but put US in front of that view, and we have a picture we can't buy in the gift shop! I suppose a lot of people would think my pictures are boring because they are all the same -- Mike and Renée at Angkor Wat, Mike and Renée at Half Moon Cay, Mike and Renée on camels, Mike and Renée at the Hermitage, Mike and Renée in the buffet ...

Like Donna I do take pictures with my review/blog in mind. I have often been known to go back and read my own blog just for the memories

My blogs are at
Cruising with the Halls

Donna, where are yours?
