    I'll start....I just got back from San Francisco today and this one nails it-though no alcatraz or golden gate bridge.

    Soda run to the corner shop this afternoon. It's more impressive in 3D.

    I've got more chins than Mount Rushmore here, but it's my most touristy shot.

    I'm not quite sure about the "stereotypical" part, but here's one from Sequoia National Park in California:

    I'll spot you an Alcatraz & Golden Gate (add the signature SF fog), along with a bonus Fisherman's Wharf :wink: Having lived in San Francisco some years ago, I'm almost embarrassed to say that I took more touristy pics during my visits afterwards than the years I lived there...

    The neighborhood. See if you can spot the funny thing about the third photo. I sized it bigger so you can tell.

    Nic, those are awesome
  16. Hey, thanks! Unfortunately I don't have any "selfies" like yours below. My wife does all of these; she's like the queen of taking selfies. Whenever I try it I always look like I'm concentrating too much on the camera!

    One from Colombia earlier this year...I'm rather new to photography and will admit I'm not real comfortable doing the "candid" shots--ostensibly capturing "real-life" during a vacation. I do however really like this shot.


    In all fairness, the next one is of me and fiance' Monica. We don't look too happy but the action in the background is kinda fun. Taken later on in the same day in Bogota'.
