Anyone who’s followed my blog for a long time knows that I go on a cruise once a year. My purpose on the ship is to shoot idillic photos of people enjoying tropical paradise. I don’t find these photos to be dishonest (at least any more so than any other commercial photography), although I see cruises in a very different way. For the last three years I’ve used any free time I’ve had to document the cruise as I see it. Bizzarre is the best word. They are a strange cultural phenomenon well worth exploring. Here’s this year’s batch.
Also, here’s a link to the full collection of with photos from previous years:
