Travel Tuesday : #Nofiltertravel

I've started a new passion project. I have started a new Instagram account and hashtag called #nofiltertravel. It is basically an account where I share mostly my travel photos that I've collected over the years from different countries I've visited. I also share fellow instgrammers' and traveler's photos  when they use the hashtag.

Last year, when I took a trip to Armenia, the whole country just took my breath away I had soooo many pretty photos that I felt like didn't need any editing nor any filter. They were great as is. So it got me to thinking about starting an account where I share all my travel photos just as I took it. Ok, so mainly because I kind of suck at editing photos but honestly I just find a lot of travel photos out there that have been edited way to much. Don't get me wrong, I don't think there's anything wrong with editing photos, I just think that travel photos should be shown the way it is seen in person. No editing, no photoshop and absolutely no filter.

I compiled a few of the photos I've shared in @nofiltertravel and also in some Travel Tuesday posts. I'll be doing some round up posts of these travel photos from time to time too.
