Signature Travel Poses To Love

What do you collect when you travel?, a blog reader once asked. I laughed on the inside as I typed my reply because, honestly, I collect nothing but memories. I buy things - fridge magnets, Starbucks' tumblers and whatnot - but I tend to give all those to my family and friends when I get home. Hence, I only have photographs encrusted with good ol' memories for myself and I'm totally okay with it.

But last year, I noticed something with my travel photos. They all look so basic! It's either I stand straight in an overly photographed spot or I pinch the tip of a famous monument. Take for example my photo op with Taj Mahal! Arrrgh! How cliche! I couldn't help but tell myself, "You can do better than that!"  whenever I see it. 

I thought it would be nice to do something unconventional next time. I want to make my treasure trove aka travel photo collection more visually appealing. And it turned out that a sprinkle of creative dust is all I need. Thus, a signature travel pose was born!

Signature Travel Pose

A lot of Filipino Bloggers in the UAE have their own travel poses as well. I guess, we all agree that there should be more to a travel photo than simply being in it! So, here's a round up of the signature travel blogger poses that I love.

#FromWhereISelfied of @CallMeDivi
Divi is fashion, travel and beauty blogger based in Dubai.

Signature Back Shots of @IamDocGelo
Doc Gelo is a travel writer, a seasoned photographer and a General Physician. 
He authored two published travel photobooks.
His writings and his signature back shots taken in top travel spots are enough to inspire us to follow his trail.

I initially thought that my plan to travel and set foot to the world's largest country was too ambitious. ๐ŸŒฟ For story and more photos from Moscow (and soon, an article about Saint Petersburg), read my 2-part- series about our weeklong winter break in Russia on my site! ๐Ÿƒ All photos ๐Ÿ“ท were taken using only my android phone because my camera was broken at the start of the trip.

And this is our very own...

#TheHighFiveJump of Ed and Lady
Our signature pose is a fusion of two things we usually do when we travel; jump shot and high five! We often do the latter behind the camera whenever we reach a destination without getting lost! :)
Hence, doing #TheHighFiveJump is another way of saying
"Good job, forever travel buddy! Cheers to more happy travels together!"

How about you? Do you have a signature travel pose?
