Taking Photos – a Means to re-live your Travels
At the moment I am writing this blog post I have uploaded another bunch of photos to my Flickr account. I am using Vista now, and its image gallery program (or is it called photo gallery in English – I’ve only got the German name for it), is showing me the date when the picture was taken. On my left side beneath my laptop I’ve got my diary open – I had sometimes forced myself to write down each day where I had gone to and what we had visited.
And so, by looking at my diary and looking at the photos on my computer and preparing them for Flickr, I re-live the week I had been away to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Three countries in one week – that’s pretty much to take in. I am so glad that I had bought a bigger memory card for my camera. So I could take pictures without selecting while being away. I do the selecting now – and it’s part of the process of re-living the one week of travel.
