I’m Going To Stop To Take A Picture (Part 2)

Since I posted Part 1 of “I’m Going To Stop To Take A Picture (Part 1)” (which has been our most popular post by far to date) I’ve been mulling over exactly what constitutes “scenery”.  Having been going through the selection process of many of our pictures this afternoon, I’ve found that there’s a very definite question of interpretation.  Are we just talking about landscapes when we talk about scenery or can it be more?  Can people be in a scenery picture or do they distract the view from the overall viewing pleasure?  Well, having thought about it for a good part of the day I’ve come to the conclusion that…  I don’t know.

One thing I do know is that I’ve found that I have a lot of pictures that could be classified as scenery, so I’m not sure how I’m going to present them to you or how to best sum them up to you.  Hmmm…..  Will it just suffice to say that they recall beautiful or memorable scenes?  Is that too broad a definition?  I really don’t know.  So here’s what I’m going to do.  I’m going to show you some nice pictures and call them scenery.  The only rule is that there are no people in these pictures and then I am going to let you decide whether they constitute scenery or not.  Perhaps after you’ve looked at the pictures, some of you will care to comment on what constitutes a scenery picture and what you thought of the pictures I chose to post.   How’s that?

Oh and a last confession.  I must have as Carl Sagan used to say…  “Billions and billions” of pictures that could qualify as scenery and I have not posted them all in this post.  So if you are not careful, I just may post a Part 2a.  You have been warned.  I sincerely hope you enjoy these pictures from all over the world where we have been.

By the way, just in case you don’t know, clicking on one of the thumbnail pictures will open it to a full size picture and you can then click through the whole gallery of photos if you like.
