Look where nobody else is looking

“Now, if you look to your left, you’ll see…”

If you looked at this photo, you may automatically think that people turned their heads as soon as they realized I pulled out my full-sized dSLR to take everybody’s photo—but that’s far from the truth.

As it turns out, the guide inside the Jasper SkyTram—who is not shown here—was pointing to something to the right, mentioning some interesting facts about the area. As soon as he pointed us to that side, everybody’s heads turned that way simultaneously. It was actually quite funny. I had my camera out, taking photos of various locations within Jasper National Park, and couldn’t resist taking this photo with everybody’s heads turned to their sides.

Taking a photo within a gondola/SkyTram isn’t something that we would all instinctively think to do, but that’s the beauty of it all. When you are confronted with something different, go ahead and take advantage of it. While everyone was busy looking outside of the SkyTram, I realized the potential of a fun photo within it.

The takeaway to this post is, when you’re done looking at the same thing everybody else is busy looking at, be sure to look elsewhere to find other—and possibly even more interesting—views for more great photo opportunities.
