Congratulations Margy!  You are our newest Top Traveler!  This photo was taken on the top of the Q1 building in Surfers Paradise Queensland.  It was amazing to see how far you could see and in how many directions.  Well worth the spooky elevator ride to the top.

Light Field Camera by Lytro

I was so blown away by this amazing new camera that I had to publish a quick excerpt from their website.  Check out the photos and have a play with them.  You will be as amazed as I was.    I definitely want one of these cameras!!

The camera that turns light into living pictures

This year, Lytro will debut the first light field camera for everyone. OK – you’re not everyone. You are a beautiful, unique snowflake. And you deserve an amazing camera that lets you capture life’s singular moments, like baby’s first steps not second, with maximum magic and minimum hassle. No more fighting with dials and settings and modes. No more flat, boring, static photographs. With a Lytro, you unleash the light.

No fuss focus. Click away. Shoot first, focus after. That's right, after. You can't miss.  Shares the magic. Immersive sharing with living pictures makes “wish you were here” come true. Speed, indeed.  From sleep to snap in under a second. Instant on. Bye-bye shutter lag. Travels light. Portable and stylish enough to bring along, from the beach to the bistro.

This Week from the Traveler

This week I'm running a day behind!  Another great week with some fantastic photo's from Australia, Europe, China and the Caribbean.  My two favourites this week are these pictures from Europe.  The photo on the right has an amazing story which I will share when it's solved. And the lights in the photo below would have to be a must see.  I can see a trip to Europe on the horizon!

So this week we had 7 photo's placed on the planet with Tracy Z being our Top Traveler of the week.  She also became a contributing photographer which is fantastic.  Congratulations again Tracy!

The destination of the week is Disneyworld Orlando.  Two photo's were placed there this week and it really is the happiest place on the planet.

I hope you have had a great week and keep checking back to see if you can place our unsolved photo's on the planet, and don't forget to tell your friends, the more that play the more fun we will have :)

Congratulations Margy!  You are our newest Top Traveler!  This photo is, of course, the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Sydney Opera House to the left.  If you have never sailed on Sydney Harbour, it should be definitely on your "bucket list".  And if you get the opportunity to be on the water on December 26th for the start of the Sydney Hobart Yacht race, definitely take it!
