B.B. Beach on Isla Mujeres. Beautiful beach, clear emerald water and of course topless is permitted.

Another favorite is  Mauri in the Hawaiian Islands. Fabulous

Everywhere except Disneyland, Zoo or crowded beach.

Where in Europe? It's not like its a country.

The scenic part with old buildings and pretty girls.

Welcome to Britain then!

No, that would be Greece then Italy, especially on the later point.

We are reluctantly still in Europe.

Say you had the opportunity to take one all-expenses-paid photography holiday to any location you wanted, where would it be? It could be somewhere that you want to go but haven't had the opportunity, or somewhere that you've been before and want to go back, the sky is the limit (literally, no space ).

For me, it would have to be a multiple-day tour of the Chernobyl region, and the cities of Chernobyl and Pripyat in particular. I've always had a fascination with abandoned structures and cities, and the Chernobyl region combines two (almost completely) abandoned cities and multiple smaller towns/villages with Soviet-era Russian architecture, and any photos I've seen always look amazing (and a little haunting). The region has also played a fairly major part in a number of video games I've enjoyed, particularly the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, which is another reason to visit.

So what is your place?

No text.

Hmm... Probably the lunar surface.

I take photos for my own pleasure. I write books for my own pleasure too. If people buy them then fine. If not then I don't really care. The fun was in writing them. Income is just icing on top of the cake.

Going 3600 years too late...

Going 3600 years too late...but I'm going anyway. Spending two weeks in Crete next May to photograph the island and especially the Minoan ruins at Phaistos and Knossos. Culmination of a 30 year old desire.

It is said that silliness is a double blessing for it both sheds authority and discomforts the up tight.

Looks to me like he simply wishes to preserve his country.

The EU can never evolve into a country, as much as the Europhiles wish it can.

Stalingrad

I've been interested in the war on the Eastern front since I was a student. I would love to spend a couple of months exploring the area that comprised the Stalingrad pocket. Not many people who survived the war there still left. But there are museums and historical places to visit.

Re:Where

We took a bus tour of Southern Ireland a number of years ago and it was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. Wonderful scenery and friendly people.   I think the Bus line was CIE, it was the government line.

So what is your place?

I'm with you on Pripyat - and if you ever decide to do this, I may still have a connection to get us in there. Send me a private message and we can discuss off the forum.

Here's one for your bucket list I visited 2 years ago: Cappadocia, in the Turkish desert. Landscape straight out of Star Wars, cave dwellings, ancient Greek chapels carved into the rock, magnificent streams cutting through the countryside forests. Like 3 different latitudes in one region.

Having lived in Chicago for 3 years, I'd think you'd find more range of photo ops in NYC or the New England coastline, from Maine to Connecticut.

For photographic variety and beauty, it's hard to beat verybiglebowski's Prague. Hands down the most beautiful, varied city in all my decades of traveling. Beats Paris, London, NYC - even Rome (and that is tough!).

Morocco is next on my agenda.

A peaceful Middle East, including Syria

My trip of a lifetime, largely due to an interest in several eras of history, would include a slow, winding path through the Middle East, which, lamentably, is currently not the safest place for a tall, fair-skinned, blue-eyed person, with an East Texas accent, to be toting a camera.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, with 10-22mm and 100mm Macro L lenses, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action. During personal time, I enjoy using both Canons and Nikons.
