iPad Travel Photo Shooters
I really don’t know why, but I was quite surprised by how many folks brought along their iPads to capture memories of their Silversea Cruises sailing of Alaska’s Inside Passage.
As we approached Alaska’s famous Hubbard Glacier, hundreds of folks were standing on the bow of the boat in hopes of capturing the perfect photograph.
There were folks peering through expensive digital DSLRs, folks snapping photos and videos through raised smart cameras of all shapes and sizes, and roughly 15 folks with outstretched arms shooting with their iPads.
While this gentleman was fairly kind to bend his elbows, most of the iPad shooters walked around with stiff arms pointed towards the glacier, and were completely oblivious to the glares of fellow passengers as they marched around requiring far more personal photography space than most.
I’ll never forget the little ole lady, both arms outstretched and locked, about 10 feet of precious space between her and her family standing in front of the glacier at the ship’s railing, and a host of impatient glares as she seemingly took forever to snap her photograph. Can you get a picture of it in your mind?
It really was a comical thing to watch.
