Now that we are settled in Taipei for a bit, Chad and I are trying to get our flickr.com photo pages up to date and labeled. This may sound like a pretty simple task, but think about how many photos you take in a normal day (I mean who doesn’t post at least one picture of their kid or meal on Instagram each day)… now multiply that times a million and you know now how many photos we have taken on this trip so far. Okay, so maybe I exaggerate a little. All I can say is that I am thankful that they are all digital, I would probably drown in them if they were actually processed photographs.
We sit and go through each set of photographs we have taken and try to choose the best ones. We upload the ones that we think will mean something or be interesting to those that are going to be looking. How does one choose what other people want to see? I have no idea, and by the end each photo set, I really don’t care. I just choose the ones that look halfway decent.
Then there are the descriptions and titles of each photo. I am not a witty person, and trying to think of new and fun things to say about each photo, well, I just hope people won’t expect too much. Captions stating things like “Zoë and a boat” will probably be common. But who really needs a full description on each photo anyways, right?
The point of all this work, is that at least our photos will be up for the world to see and everyone can share in our adventure even more. The digital age has been wonderful for us on this trip and I am so glad that we can show people what we have seen and that people can read here on this blog about what and how we are doing. Thank God for excellent technology.
Here are some of the pictures that will make it up on our flickr page. When it is up and ready for perusal, I will make sure to give you the link ASAP! Now I am off to choose some more photos to upload… only another 328,798 to go.
