|Cover of my journal---portrait is one I did from a photo I found online and can't find again to give photo credit. I'm sorry!|
I always try to incorporate a map of where I traveled into my travel journal. I love maps and any excuse to use one is leaped on.
Detail of a painting my Miguel Covarrubias is in the bottom right corner in the above photo. One of our painting assignments was to do a painting of our own based on Sr. Covarubias' work.
The very graphic Day of the Dead lady in the above photo was from a free handout that was everywhere in Oaxaca. I loved this graphic and was thrilled when I discovered that inside the booklet was a big, fold-out poster with both Frida Kahlo and Coco Channel by artist Bradley Theodore. I love this poster!
I didn't post photos of the pages where I just inserted printouts from the trip and other written material I wanted to keep. Not very interesting to look at, but good reading and things I want to keep for reference.
This journal was fun to do! Since I started shooting with a Nikon D7100 I can no longer use my little travel-friendly Zinc printers, as the Nikon digital files are too large for these small printers to use. Sad, but I just pick the photos I want to insert later and make note of them in the journal as I am working on it on the trip and add the printed-at-home-after-returning photos later. Cumbersome maybe, but effective.
