How to Easily Get the Best Out of Your Next Holiday

It is probably stating the obvious, but most people love to take holidays. They plan them months or even a year or more in advance, then dream about them and anticipate their getaway as the time gets nearer and nearer. This is totally understandable, as unfortunately many people are not always doing the job that they love, or even worse, they downright hate their work.
Holidays are a way to escape from the norm and are the perfect opportunity to forget about the humdrum boredom of normal day to day life such as the daily commute, sitting in a miserable office for eight hours, dealing with workplace politics and having to the listen to the same monotonous conversations with colleagues.

Even if you truly love your work and are generally enjoying life, a vacation to see and experience somewhere new is never a bad thing. The very best jobs can become stressful from time to time, so getting away is a chance to reset, free your mind from worry and also de-stress.

First Photo Featured on Flickr Explore

I have enjoyed photography from an early age, and been a member of Flickr since 2007. As the site has improved I have began putting more time and effort into adding my photos. Until about a year ago I was happy if a photo I took got over 100 views and a couple of favorites though.

The photo below which I named "Keeping an Eye on Things" has had over 10,250 views and 168 favorites in the two days since I uploaded it, after being featured on Flickr Explore:

Keeping an Eye on Things
Tuesday morning I was up early, and decided to take some photos of my girlfriend, +Yariza Martín Key´s cats, as they were playing in the field and the morning light was perfect. I selected the five I liked the best, edited them a little (contrast, brightness) and posted them on Flickr.

The next day I logged on and found out that a photo I took of Bolita sitting in the sun on a wall, had been featured on Flickr Explore. My photo was therefore one of 500 that Flickr selects each day to highlight due to the quality or interesting nature of the photo.

Many thanks to Flickr for choosing my photo as one of the photos to feature on Explore two days ago, to everyone that has viewed, favorited and commented on this photo, and last but not least to Bolita for being such a good model!
