We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone
So I recently entered a travel competition, made the top ten but sadly I did not win the final stage for an epic trip hiking the Inca Trail )o: However I did win over £250 worth of hiking and adventure gear from Mountain Warehouse as a runner up! So thank you to all those who voted for me it is so appreciated!
Stage two of the competition involved putting together a video highlighting my adventurous spirit and personality and one thing I like to whip together is a good old travel slideshow to instantly take me back to that exciting fun travel moment.
It is why I love photography it just captures that moment, look, smile, happiness, activity and colour all in one go! Even before the digital days I was the teen who would take her rolls of film to Jessops to get developed hoping what I snapped turned out okay on the film – sometimes they did and sometimes they didn’t (kinda like life huh?). I’m very glad we have digital cameras to ease capturing those ‘quick and you’ll miss it’ moments but I do miss the waiting for what I had captured.
I had fun making this vid and recollecting all the fun I’ve had with my friend Mo and places and cultures I have explored. I look forward to creating many more adventurous memories. Have a watch of the video and share in the comments below one of your travel memories.
Happy collecting of more memories!
