I take a lot of pictures. Just pictures, nothing special. At least, that’s what I thought. I only shared some pictures via Instagram or Twitter. I don’t know whether you look at them or not, but at least I have the sense I shared them with the whole world. Because that is where pictures are made for. To be shared. All those copyrights, not for me. I understand that some people invest a lot in taking fantastic pictures and that they need to live from it. But if no one can see them, what’s the point then?
But ok, that’s another story. What I wanted to say is that pictures are not just pictures. Pictures show your life, your feelings, your talents and so much more. It doesn’t matter you are using a throw-away camera, an iPhone or an expensive DSLR. The expression and the story of a picture are the most important.
With the release of the new Photos.app from Apple, I was scanning my pictures. One by one. More than ten thousand pictures spread over ten years. Amazing! And then I had an idea. Some of those pictures where published to Instagram. I added a nice layer and a comment and shared them with all of you. What if I created a book with all those pictures in it? Wouldn’t that be fun?
Well, the result can be found here. Take a look at it. It is completely free and gives you a look at my past years in photos. I am proud. Proud of the photos I took, proud of what I have done and proud of my life.
