Feel Good Travel Photography Competition Finalists: Zebras & Zanzibar

 

Today we are looking at the finalists for the Zebras & Zanzibar trip. The competition entries have been submitted by amateur photographers from all over the world, from the UK to Australia, Canada to India, the USA to Indonesia. Travel really is something which inspires people and is something a lot of us have in common, no matter where you are from.

We hope you enjoy browsing through the wonderful selection of photos as much as we have, sharing and discussing our favourites in the office and reading about the travel stories of each one. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, ready for the announcement of the winners on the 29th of February.

1. When I travelled to India I felt fascinated

Meeting these village elders in a village in rural Rajasthan was a truly unique experience. These proud, dignified men were absolutely delighted to be photographed. They are used to squatting on their haunches rather than sitting on chairs. Notice how they allow their arms to hang forward, showing off the precious rings on their fingers and emphasising their personal wealth and status within their community.

2. When I travelled to Peru I felt love and admiration

When traveling in a small Andean Village, we took photos of local families who had never had photos taken before. We arranged for the photos to be returned to the village. This photo of a mom (Ruth) and her daughter (Melissa-Solome) melts my heart every time as I saw the poverty they lived in, yet the happiness and love they have for one another and their entire community. Lessons in life.

7. When I travelled to India I felt colourful

We travelled with On the Go Tours to India for the Holi Festival - what an amazing time - everyone was the same (colored) everyone was having fun and enjoying the holiday - enjoying their many monuments. Visiting and enjoying their food, family and friends.

8. When I travelled to Morocco I felt excited

Djemaa El-Fna is such a frantic location especially at sunset when the food stalls begin trading. Sitting high above the square at a cafe was the perfect place to try and capture the pace of the square against the majestic beauty of the sunset.

10. When I travelled to Morocco I felt like I was living through history

Travelling to Morocco has left me with a lasting impression of a hospitable, welcoming people who have a rich history and deep sense of traditional culture. My whole experience in the country was positive; experiencing the colours, smells and sights that have formed the Moroccan culture has made me appreciate life, the value of living simply, and that a smile and a welcome can go a very very long way.
