Photography with Musical Pairings: A 2015 Retrospective

Wanderlust: noun; wan·der·lust : A strong desire to travel

Have you ever been bitten by the wanderlust bug? In 2015, the bug got me bad. Camera in hand I was thankful to have visited two new countries in Europe, California (for the first time… crazy I know), and even some urban exploration in my home city of New York.

Then it came to me that the other item I don't travel much without, was my music list. Tens of thousands of songs strong, I let the mood of the location dictate my music choice. Even to the point of doing some research on local bands before traveling. For all my fellow 'wanderlusters' out there, in 2016 I encourage you to download your favorite music streaming service, Spotify (my personal go-to), Google Play, Pandora, etc., and get to traveling. I've included some of my favorite photos and musical tracks for 2015. Enjoy!!
