    Default Can we start a new section for touring/photo tips?

    Hi Marko,
    Is there anyway we can start up a thread to give suggestions on places to photograph in specic areas that a member has found or a member might be going to on vacation?
    I mean I have a few great places to go in Calgary and if anybody asks I would more than be happy to tell them and I discovered some neat places while tripping around in Banff a month ago. Marko, when you went to Niagara falls I remember you posted a thread where you had asked if anybody had good tips for shooting in the area. I've seen others on here ask the same question (AL had one a while back about abandoned places in Ontario http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f15...info-6890.html) and wouldn't it be great if we had a section where we could do that to help others. Maybe post pictures also of our takes on what we saw based on suggestions.
    I keep going back to an idea by Tomorrow's treasures found here:
    http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f3/...book-6682.html
    and I posted a similar tip here:
    http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f3/...gary-6730.html


    Thanks for anything you could do here..might be alot of fun and really helpful to have it all in a section.

    I like this idea. It could showcase some travel photos and if someone is going somewhere they could post it and ask for suggestions.


    For example, I'll be travelling to Austin, Tx in May and would love to have some ideas of where to go and take pictures

    I like this Idea as Well - I see no reason not to try
    Let's just just think about organizing for a sec.
    Maybe just one new forum for cities to start?
    Then we can scale up as needed - or feel free to suggest anything that may help.
    What about thread titles? Should be the name of the city first for easy searching?

    anything else come to mind?

    Thx- marko

    What about a Photo.Ca google map like the one some of us have marked where we live. I presume people will also be more willing to mark this map than where they live.

    I'd like the google map idea. I'm not really familiar with Canadian geography, so I can get an idea how different parts of your country look like.

    I'm not familiar with the Google Maps....is there any way we can tie in information to the map? Ive used Google earth...is it similar?
    I also like the idea of adding the city name as the title to make it easier to find/reference...and a link to the Google map.
    So if someone was coming to Calgary, how would we do this...google map first and then add a question and or cool tip they found?
    I am hoping we can keep it easy for both the members to use and for Marko to set up.

    The first thing that I thought of when I started reading this thread was a Google map. You can mark spots on a map, include an iconic photo of the location plus add some descriptive text. Seems like the perfect solution to me. I don't think it is that complicated though it means you need a Google account to fully participate.

    I've created a sample for us to try and see if it's worth doing...

    This sounds very cool. I haven't traveled in CA much, but extensively in the US and can contribute stuff stateside. Nice idea Casil (or is it LisaC?).

    okay but how would it work? Can I add photos to Iggy's map? Or am I over thinking it?

    I like the idea of the city/place being the title. it would it much easier to search.
