When I was a kid, in the 1950's, there were always National Geographics around the house, a gift from my grandfather. He had worked on the Panama Canal and, having 'seen the world', wanted to make sure that his offspring were exposed. I pored over those photos made by the great travel photographers of two generations ago. I was a real wannabe.
Now I pore over the images made by the great travel photographers of this age. Their work is still laying around the house - on my computer. And I'm still a wannabe. I will list here the photographers that I like (and that have great image-filled websites) as I find them. Many of course, are National Geographic contributors.
