My walk this week is from 2009 – let me explain. My wife was recently surprised by the Photos app on her iPhone telling her she had a new memory which turned out to be from Whitby in 2009. That seems to me to be an old memory, not a new one. However, I checked the memory section of my own Photos app and found a similar set from the same holiday we had taken.
When looking through the photos it was the one above that caught my eye (apart from the happy family snapshots) – I like the form created by the angle it is taken from. On looking more closely at the images, I realised that they were all taken on the iPhone I had at the time and when reviewing them for this post, discovered that the camera has indeed (just as they claim) improved over the last 10 years of development.
Regardless of the photos shot or the camera used, these images do what was intended at the time and that was to make a record of the visit to Whitby and provide a memory trigger for the future. The memories are old, not new, but I am happy on this occasion that Apple thought to build the facility of “new memories” into the Photos app.
Unfortunately there is no soundscape to include with these photos, so I must use my imagination to recreate the sound of a popular holiday town in the North East of England.
Regular followers will have noticed that my format for this post is different to the usual gallery I use to present my photography – this is because I realised that the WordPress Reader does not show images as a gallery and if I present them as a gallery using cropped square thumbnails, that is what shows in the reader instead of the full image. My preference is to use the gallery as this allows you to focus on one image at a time alongside the soundscapes I usually include. However, compromise is often necessary for most things in life and when there is a soundscape to listen to, this format will not stop you doing so while also looking through the photos.
Do you use the WordPress Reader and do you have a preference for the way in which posts are presented?
