I decided to change domain name of my site to http://PlacesUnknown.com, anything that goes to the SillyMonkeyPhoto.com name, you all use to see, will be redirected to the new name, so all your favorites and links should continue to work (well, at least as far as wordpress assertions). I chose that name because I think travel photography is about places that unknown to the majority of the people. Yes, we all know famous landmarks and can recognize many other places, but truth is that most people will never be able to see most of the world and bringing to you famous landmarks and maybe more down the road places is what I’m trying to do. So really, it just the name change of the URL, everything else should stay the same.
The night before we stayed at Jackson Hole, ate at the Snake River Brewery and drank some nice IPA. We got up early and started making our way up north to the Yellowstone National Park. But first we took Gros Ventre Rd and saw our first buffalo on the trip. It was so exciting to see the first buffalo. I was taking pictures of it from far away. After the first encounter every other buffalo was just like a normal occurrence and we actually ignored most of them unless there were a lot of them and right in front of us. Over the next two weeks it was interesting to observe other cars stopping and the first site of the buffalo, they probably saw their first as well.
From Gros Ventre road we got onto the Mormon Row. I wanted to take some photos of the old barns that I saw before. I was really surprised by how small they are in real life to what I have seen on the photos. The one below is actually not the one that most commonly photographed, but I liked it more and decided to share this one first.

It evokes a past that is beautiful and irretrievable. I loved the photo. I have a friend who does paintings of the old barns of Nova Scotia–same feeling.
