    What were your first thoughts when you saw this photograph?

    Sure you recognized the Statue of Liberty, but then what were your thoughts?  How did he get the moon behind the statue?  Or perhaps, how did he make it look like a snow globe?

    Actually, I shot this photograph with my iPhone peering through the eyepiece of a telescope in our room at New York City’s Ritz-Carlton Battery Park.

    The round shape is the view offered through the telescope.  I then added a little color boost, and a snarky frame during post-production.

    Like it?

    It just serves to show us that we should always be looking for the unusual when shooting travel photography.

    What unusual photographs have you captured while traveling?

    Bio: The Roaming Boomers is a luxury travel blog spotlighting experience, adventure, learning and exploration. David and Carol Porter, Michigan natives who retired to Scottsdale, started the project in 2008 after the market collapse took away almost half of the savings they’d carefully put together to be able to retire at age 50. The couple combined their years of entrepreneurship with a love of travel and set off to see if they could build success. The Roaming Boomers do occasionally accept free lodging, food and other gifts, but disclose that in their posts. They hope to build an audience of Baby Boomers who join them vicariously on their adventures. But they also hope to instill their love of travel so that the coming bubble of 79 million Boomers will join them.
