Europe Visual Diary


I finally found time to organize my hard drive over the past week. I was sorting through folders filled with unwanted documents, unnecessary downloads and stumbled upon a folder filled with photographs I thought I would never see again. After hours of browsing through each and every single photo, I came out from almost a trance-like state from being swept back into the past I thought I have lost and forgotten. These photos drew me back into the depths of my memory, leaving me with a feeling of nostalgia and a bit of, longing. Lucky for us, we don't have to rely solely on our memories to tell our story. The thing about photographs is they capture some of our most treasured moments, capturing life and holding it still. It's true what they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words." Taken at the right time, one photograph can tell an entire story. They help us remember the details of the past – details our memory, on its own, can't fully preserve. I'm glad that I got to declutter or I wouldn't chance upon all these memories hidden within the corners of my hard drive. I was just planning on organizing them, but I got so fixated with the photos, that I chose a couple, edited them then decided to kill two birds and have them saved here, just in case I lose the copies I have recovered. Here's a peek of some photographs I took during the summer of 2013.
