“…instead of walking over the place St. Marco, Jack was taking photos, instead of taking the gondola with me, Jack was taking photos of me”- “2 Days in Paris”*
It has been one of the main elements of this blog that whenever I travel, the access to Internet and computers accepting my USB or camera was rather limited. But just as often I forget my camera or I leave it deliberately behind. Though I like very much to have photos of places I visited and moments I shared with friends, I appreciate to live and to experience situations without putting the camera between me and what is actually happening.
Photos are great, a souvenir, art, a beautiful memory to remember what has been but sometimes, for me, it is more important to enjoy the very instant without trying to catch it.
