I’ve just spent the morning browsing my own facebook account. Out of boredom, I guess.
I discovered a new function. One can pick up to five favourite pictures to show separately somewhere in the profile. So I looked through all the pics, I published over the course of time, to consider the ones I would choose for that purpose. My facebook site covers eight years, starting out in 2008.
It was clear from start, that five images would never be enough to cover the story. Turns out it is five pairs of images, that I can reduce the hundreds of images to.
Oddly enough, the images I chose, would not mean anything to anyone. It is just my own memory, that is triggered by certain images. The story behind it, so to say. So I decided, not to use this function on facebook, at all.
Instead, you, the blog cyberlot, get the benefit of it now (just kidding). Here’s the collection, followed by the headline of the story behind it. No need to feel bad, if you’re bored already. Just skip the rest of the post.
Nr. 1: 2008 + 2011
Nr. 2: 2011 + 2011
Nr. 3: 2009 + 2010
Nr. 4: 2010 + 2011
These two images just stand for my ongoing love with photography. They are by no means perfect or great, but I like taking them. And some of them I also like to show. Go figure.
