I wrote the following while on a trip to the ‘Geothermal Wonderland’ of Rotorua with the ‘Fellowsheep’ I noticed how many pictures we were all taking of something that was not particularly engaging and started to ponder what these pictures meant and why we were taking them. All photos in this piece were taken by me using my film camera.
We have the heavy- duty over-packers philosophy when it comes to taking pictures. We click that freeze button so many times the action becomes meaningless. stuffing memories into a suitcase packed full with similar experiences just in case we ever need them for later. The suitcase has no limits so we don’t value the space.
