It’s almost nonsense to talk about our London vacation photos when you live in London. The fact is that my sister and a friend came to London for the first time. So we became tourists and enjoy London with them. And I do not complain about that, I love walking around. We also spent a weekend in Edinburgh. My third time there, their first time. And we all love, everything!
During this time, I took several pictures of them (as always). And after a few days, I remembered an old idea. The one I had during another trip but had not had the chance to put into practice yet: make videos of the trip and join with the photos later. Like a vacation video summary, you know? I was wishing to do that for a long time.
I like the way a video tells a story. Even if it’s a slideshow with photos and music. The video gives rhythm, sequence, and approaches. When we watch, we immerse ourselves much more in the context. I like to do that in my work sometimes, as I did in those: family photography e documentary family photography family photography and documentary family photography that are on my YouTube channel. Yes, I have a channel now to share some work videos. But I still hadn’t made a video for myself because it was never a priority, you know? The shoemaker’s son always goes barefoot.. 😛
In fact, I had done videos before, but it was just a few that ended up in HDs. But it’s that time of the year when we start to put our resolutions into practice. New year, new life! First goals to put into practice. Not that this was a goal, but starting the year doing an old wish might give me the motivation to do other ones.
Another reason is gathering memories somewhere that we can see several times. It doesn’t make sense anymore for me to leave thousands of photos in HDs that I will never have the patience to look. One of my goals this year is to make one album for every year of my life. And I’m excited to start with last year, which was an amazing year!
But then I decided to do this video first. As the first step in a long walk. And therein lies the result. 🙂
The idea is to show the mood and the joy of these days that we spent together enjoying these two cities. With a vision of who is inside. I was part of those days and this was my way of participating in the story even though I am just in a few images.
Press play and tell me: isn’t it a good idea to summarize the memories of a trip?
