So, the idea for today’s episode of the blog came about when I discovered an old CD full of photos during a (much needed) junk clearing-out session at the weekend. The CD had lain untouched in a box for years before finally being rediscovered. Among other things, it included a few hundred photos taken whilst I was in Greenland in 2006.
I had great fun looking through the old photos of an awesome expedition and, afterwards, I got to thinking. I’ve started taking a lot more photos in the past five years since owning a DSLR, and now shooting on a Fujifilm X-T1 mirrorless camera (which I love). Do I really want to put all those photos on to my hard drive or on a CD which will be lost for the better part of a decade like the Greenland photos? Hell no. I want to be able to sit down and enjoy the stories and the memories those pictures hold.
Each holiday was amazing, and each for its own special reasons. I really hope that this will make sure the photos won’t be forgotten, and the stories and memories and experiences will be printed and shared for everyone who comes to visit us and is interested enough to have a look. I’m really excited to see the results!
Having written the title to this blog I’m now starting to think it could be some sort of human-powered super challenge. Row from Greenland to Berlin, run to Budapest and cycle from Budapest to Vietnam… how hard could it be?! Let me know if you’re reading this and crazy enough to fancy it!
