My 7 Super Shots.

Thank you to Lola of Where in the World is Lola? for tagging me to take part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots. When I travel, the photographs I take are my souvenirs, so I loved going through my photos for this fun exercise. Well without further ado here is a photo that:

1. Takes my breathe away.

My 7 Super Shots - California, Pacific Ocean, PCH

Anything along an ocean, especially anything along the Pacific Ocean on the PCH has me in awe. This shot is from just north of Malibu.

2. Makes me laugh or smile.

My 7 Super Shots - Atlanta skyline, Piedmont Park

Seeing city skylines makes me smile. The sun, blue skies and hot weather make me smile. Being in a park makes me smile. Being in the ATL really makes me smile, so of course I’ll be on cloud nine when I’m at Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta.

3. Makes me dream.

My 7 Super Shots - Kerosene Creek, Rotorua, New Zealand

Kerosene Creek, a hot spring around Rotorua, was the first time I felt like I was in a fairy tale in New Zealand. As I sat in the warm waters I dreamed about what other places and views I’d see as spectacular as this.

4. Makes me think.

My 7 Super Shots - New Zealand, Mount Cook Village, Kea Point

On the open road or in this case on the open trail to Kea Point around Mount Cook, makes me think, what’s ahead and let’s explore.

5. Makes my mouth water.

My 7 Super Shots - Maize and Blue Deli - Ann Arbor, Pure Michigan

When I go into a deli or restaurant I’m always looking for that reuben sandwich and no one does it better then Maize and Blue Delicatessen in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Triple Play Reuben wow. Corned beef, pastrami, sauerkraut, multiple cheeses and Russian dressing stacked so high, my mouth can’t stop watering. I learned about this place from Adam Richman’s visit on Man V. Food and I can’t stop going back.

6. Tells a story.

My 7 Super Shots - Detroit Mural

I’ve had the chance to walk around Detroit, off the beaten path, to checkout some of the murals around the city. Each one depicts a story from its artist. Each one brings out different emotions for everyone that sees it, probably giving off a different story for all. The Water Cycle mural intrigued the weatherman in me, because it shows off Detroit, Windsor, the Detroit River in between and the life of water, coming down as rain and going back up as vapers.

7. I am most proud of (aka my worthy of National Geographic shot).

My 7 Super Shots - Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda, Florida

Hanging out along Charlotte Harbor in Punta Gorda, Florida last year during Fourth of July weekend brought out many American flags with beautiful backdrops behind.

It’s time to tag!

  1. This is great Aaron. I especially love your ‘dream’ shot! WOW…I can see why! Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to take fun pics with you in a weeks time in Chicago! 🙂

    cheers – lola

    • Thanks Lola! The dream shot, yeah I sat in and hung around the hot spring waters for hours. Didn’t want to leave, just beautiful and relaxing. See you in Chi-town next week! 🙂

  2. Great shots, especially the photo of the Kea Point trail! That reuben looks delicious, too (even if it is from the Maize and Blue Deli… *cough*Spartans*cough). And hey, thanks for tagging me! 🙂

    • Thanks Francesca! Did more photo capturing then hiking/walking on that trail haha, didn’t want to put the camera down. Yeah I feel the same way as far as the name of the deli is concerned, but you can’t beat that reubuen or any sandwich there. Your welcome, look forward to see your Super 7 Shots.

  3. I really enjoyed this post and your beautiful photos (#4 – wow)! Do you have #1 in a larger size? I’d love to use it as my desktop background (I love Cali and views along PCH too!).

    Thanks for tagging me. Time to go through the camera. 🙂

    • Thank you! #4 is great. Many New Zealand photos seem to turn out that way. 🙂 Sure, I will e-mail you soon.

  4. Thanks for tagging me Aaron! You’ve got some great shots here- I really enjoyed driving on the PCH when I was there, your pic brings back some lovely memories. And the Kea Point photo is just beautiful!! Okay, time to get cracking on my 7 Super Shots 🙂

    • No problem Anis. Thank you, driving and hanging out along the PCH is unbelievable. Can’t get there enough. Look forward to seeing your pics. 🙂

  5. justchuckinit

    Thanks for tagging me mate! Ah, the PCH drive is one of my favorites! We would cruise along there as far up as Santa Barbara all the time!

    Awesome photos, I’ll be sure to put up mine soon!

    • No problem Ryan! Look forward to seeing your photos. The PCH is a great ride from Santa Monica, through Malibu and up to Santa Barabara. Love it further north too between Monterey and San Francisco.

  6. There is nothing like a good Reuben and the one in the photo looks like a GREAT one!

    • It was great! Definitely recommend. I’m always looking for the reuben, when there sandwiches on a menu. 🙂

  7. Traveling Ted

    I am a big fan of the Reuben sandwich, now I am wanting one. Great photos. The bottom one reminds me of the flag on our boat in Chicago.

    • Thanks, definitely taking a liking to flag shots with water as a backdrop. Any Chicago recommendations for a great reuben sandwich?
