How often do you take a whole bunch of photos and then never look at them again? We all do it… a quick scroll through your phone’s photo albums, laptop folders or the SD card inside your camera is sure to elicit at least a single “I’d forgotten about that!” or an “oh yeah!“
I don’t want to do that anymore.
I don’t want to want to take hundreds of photos only to revisit the ones I use on this site.
I don’t want to pick out one great shot and then forget all the photos that aren’t profile picture-worthy.
It can’t be just me who’s guilty of this – and who wants to do something to change it? I used to go through every digital photo album, pulling out my favourites and saving them to a folder that would immediately become my screensaver gallery and later be printed out when I’d collected enough.
This was going to be a pure travel post but I’m going to make it a little less word and a little more image. Photos are memories. Sure, they’re never going to replace the real thing but they certainly can enhance them. As I leave you with these photos of Hanoi, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City, all parts of Vietnam I visited earlier this year, I invite you to think about the last time you looked at a digital photo more than once. And to go dig out some of your favourite memories, too.
Have you been to Vietnam? Would you like to go? What photos lie forgotten in your own photo library?
