Comment from Passion Passport:


"I wish capturing a vibrant sunset or a single subject in an empty museum was as easy as it seems. A lot of people see my photos and ask what gear I use, but the real questions I want to pose in return are: how badly do you want it? How early are you willing to wake up for sunrise? How long are you willing to stand in the street to wait for that perfect moment? How many times are you willing to revisit the same location until you get the right conditions? The funny thing is, even when you've captured the moment you've been waiting for, it's never how you expected it to be. Usually, it's even better." 📷 @kevinwonka 📍Natural History Museum, London, UK passionpassport There are still a few hours before this week's PPStairs challenge (link in bio) closes, so hurry to enter!

"It was just past 7 a.m. when I arrived at Hatshepsut Temple in the desert outskirts of Luxor, and already my clothes clung to me from the heat. I walked through the temple entrance, rounded a corner, and stumbled across an unassuming middle-aged man who sat pensively, leaning against one of the many columns. I asked him if I could take his photo. With a slight nod, he approved and unknowingly gifted me a token of this place to keep forever." 📷 @shaylyn.marie 📍Hatshepsut Temple, Egypt passionpassport

The filmmakers behind @morethanjustparks often refer to Zion National Park as the Yosemite of the desert. Jim and Will Pattiz explored the area during the autumn months, and describe their experience as stepping into “The Land Before Time.” This film is the result of their adventure in the steep, red cliffs of Zion National Park.

"Pura Ulun Danu Batur is a temple nestled on the edge of a lake in northern Bali about a three-hour scooter ride from anything resembling Western civilization. During my time living in Indonesia, I visited this place several times. Although it is normally overcrowded with tourists, you can go before sunrise and, not only will it be empty, but you might witness one of the most beautiful sunrises you'll ever see." 📷 @kendallmartin 📍Bali, Indonesia passionpassport

"The South Sawyer Glacier calved (pieces fell off and formed icebergs) twice while we stopped nearby. The waves were massive, and it really put into perspective just how big the glacier and icebergs are. It's breathtaking to see and hear an act of nature of such magnitude, but bittersweet when you remember the reason for it." 📷 @thehmstravels 📍South Sawyer Glacier, Alaska, USA passionpassport

"Cuba seemed like a country stuck in a time, and I wanted to see it with my own eyes. In some ways, my original expectation was true, but in others, it was not. For example, I thought that there were only classic cars in Cuba, but there are newer cars driving around the city, too. This trip taught me to never forget to see things with my own eyes." 📷 @vic_nkt 📍Havana, Cuba passionpassport

Congratulations to our PPOpenSpaces2 Instagram challenge winner @jrcatalo who takes us on his adventure to Cappadocia, Turkey. "It was my first time riding a Hot Air balloon, and I vividly remember how surreal it felt in that moment witnessing this majestic view. Every second up there was amazing; it was difficult to contain the happiness I felt." Thank you to everyone who shared their experiences, and to our guest judges @karimiliya and @brandonexplores!

While exploring Chefchaouene, Morocco, with her husband, @wanderlustruby was hesitant to take photos of other people. But upon seeing this man wandering down the main streets, she couldn’t resist: “I felt moved by what I was seeing. The lifestyle, the customs...everything is so different to what I am used to. I wanted to caputre this moment to save it for a long time to come." passionpassport

"Everyone was so kind to me in Canada, and the day I took this photo was no exception. The temperature was almost below freezing, so we didn't know if we could stand to jump in the lake for a photo because we had no towels and no other clothes to wear. We did it anyway, to the surprise of the 30 people who were watching and all started cheering and clapping. It was a chilly experience, but one I'll never forget!" 📷 @carloslazarini 📍Joffre Lakes, British Columbia, Canada passionpassport And make sure to enter our PPOpenSpaces2 challenge (rules in bio) before 11:59am ET today, if you haven't already!

"Two years ago, I came across this oddly colorful corner on a very candid stroll through London. And I stumbled upon it again a year later as an expat on the way to my first Notting Hill Carnival. But it took seeing it for a third time for me to finally take a photo of it. It was the perfect shot because as I traveled down to the exact corner, I let my eyes wander and take in my surroundings, fully. It felt like this part of London was a museum, and I was the only customer allowed in its exclusive exhibition." 📷 @menskr 📍London, England passionpassport

"Santa Maria Del Mar, the awe-inspiring Cathedral located in Barcelona's gothic quarter, is a popular photographic spot for tourists. But it is confined by the narrow streets of the Ribera, making it difficult to get a clear view. I used its location to my advantage to get a completely different perspective.” @jacbcn Barcelona, Spain passionpassport

"This image didn’t jump out at me when I took it, but four years later, it’s become one of my favorites from my trip to Laos. It conjures up the smell of old teak houses wet with jungle heat and the 'pop-pop-pop' of a rattan ball being kicked back and forth by bare, dirt-caked feet." @mcallisterjeff Luang Prabang, Laos passionpassport

Congratulations to our PPShadows Instagram challenge winner, @joshuafooo who captured this scene in Phuket. "Sunsets or sunrises are my favourite times to shoot, as they create very long shadows. Shadows give a very natural contrast and tone to a photo, and these trees and pockets of sunlight was a perfect set up!" Thank you to everyone who participated, and a special thanks to our guest judge @etchd! Stay tuned for this week's theme announcement later today!

"I think my favorite thing about this image is how unplanned it was. While on a roadtrip through Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and Austria, we pulled off the highway to get a better view of this castle. When we got closer to the water's edge, this man came floating by while he was fishing. The whole scene was very spur of the moment — I love that about it!" @justindkauffman Interlaken, Switzerland Share some of your spontaneous travel moments with passionpassport!

While exploring the narrow streets of Rawalpindi, Pakistan, Usman ( @usman_zubair) and his friends noticed a mosque in the distance wedged between a row of old houses. They traced its towering architecture through the street and found their way to an entrance. Walking under the arches of Jamia Masjid, Usman couldn’t help but think of the hands that built them, the labor that went into each fresco, and the history hidden within their walls.
