Top 10 US Travel Photos You Need to Take

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas

Back in the day, you had to pick and choose your shots since you might have only one roll of film and 24 to 36 possible photos. You had to worry and wonder if you’d blinked, as you couldn’t tell before the film was developed (at a store, inevitably taking more than an hour). Then there was the awful time you accidentally opened the back of the camera and exposed the entire roll, rendering all of your vacation shots black. Those were dark times.

Now, taking that perfect vacation shot is much easier, and so it’s become more important to have those iconic shots in your photo gallery. You know the ones, the shots that prove you’ve traveled the length and breadth of our fair country, seeing the most important sights and sites.

Rescuing Elephant Orphans in Nairobi, Kenya

An older orphan comforts a younger one.

Kenya is without a doubt a wildlife paradise, its wilderness unparalleled and one of the few places on earth where one can admire the Big Five. But with these unique attributes come challenges, as poachers decimate herds for the ivory trade, killing mothers and leaving behind orphans. Several conservation groups are at the forefront of animal rescue and orphan rehabilitation.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi is considered one of the most successful programs in the world. In addition to rescuing and hand-rearing rhino and elephant orphans, it’s engaged in veterinary assistance, anti-poaching measures and habitat conservation. Other initiatives include community outreach, which involves improving the living conditions of the local communities and engaging them in protecting the wildlife and environment.

6 Reasons You Need to Go to Detroit This Year

Detroit, Michigan

For awhile now, Detroit has made news for the wrong reasons. Bankruptcy, “ruin porn,” residents maintaining public parks because the city just wasn’t – the list goes on. In the past several years, however, the story has been changing, just like the city.

Detroit’s recovery, dubbed “America’s great comeback story,” may be a morbid curiosity to reality TV audiences waiting for failure, but that recovery is real – palpable in the city itself, particularly when you talk to people who have lived in Detroit for decades. Yes, there are still boarded-up buildings downtown, but occupancy rates in renovated apartment buildings are so high there’s a waiting list. Things are happening in Detroit, and there’s no time like the present to go and see for yourself.
