Thanks Chris. Every week a great program and the perfect format! I travel and shoot photos by the hundreds, but I still found several useful ideas.

I burned podcast 215 to a DVD but I followed a different way than you mentioned, without using QuickTimePlayer. First, I downloaded podcast 215 from your website in ACC format. Then, I simply opened up iDVD and presses the third button down, Magic DVD. Drag the downloaded file, 215AmateurTraveler.m4a, to ‘Drop Movies Here’ then, decide on a ‘Theme.’ Pushed burn, inserted a virgin DVD and that’s it. Oh, you might want to add a ‘Title’ before burning. Keep up the good work.

I just listened to the podcast with Ralph Velasco on travel photography. It was a very enjoyable discussion that I think anyone who likes to take pictures can benefit from. I consider myself a good landscape photographer, but I am also one who usually looks away from any people who might “spoil” the picture. The ideas about including an element to provide understandable scale to the image and some human touch were excellent.

At my age I am more of a photographer than a traveler, but I do enjoy your podcasts without feeling envious that I wasn’t the one who got to go there. I’m just glad they got to go.

Keep it up!!
