6:12 Photography's 29 Best Travel Photos

Since June 12th is a special day for 6:12 Photography and it's owner, Eric McKinney, I've decided to post something a little unique in honor of the roots of 6:12. Although photography has always been an interest, my passion for photography really peaked during my college years at Carson-Newman College when I was able to travel abroad during the summers. After my travels to places like Europe, China, Japan, Southern Africa and Egypt, I would return home with thousands of photos that documented each day and each place I visited along my trips. Through those travel portraits, I started to hear comments like "Wow, you have a gift with photography" and "You should do this full-time." Ironically, at the time, I never dreamed that photography could be a full-time career or that I could spend each day doing something that I loved and enjoyed.

That said, since 6:12 Photography originated with these compliments on my travel photography, I am posting 29 of my favorite travel photographs. Enjoy!
