Press play! I would be the first one to admit that sometimes I let the process of taking photos come before living life; instead of experiencing something, I document it. Which is strange in various aspects because the obsessive activity of taking photographs can make the images you take next to pointless, as you don’t live out the moments you photograph. Documentary photography should be an organic part of life and not come before it or get in the way of it. Emily in the past has unfortunately experienced the lonely consequences of this obsessive trait I have, and because of this I have vowed to change! One change for me was not to bring my digital camera along at all on this mini-holiday, and to shoot on film / iphone. Which means I shoot less, consider more shots and enjoy experiences more. Emily also joined in with the film fun! What I want to remember through these slideshow-holiday-esque pictures is FUN! They are not meant to be perfect or gallery-worthy, they are just an insight to our experiences on this holiday.
