A Little History:
and the blog are the only two things that stuck. And, just like my
non-virtual life, my flickr account is in need of a little
organization. Maybe one day . . .
Anywho, back to 2005, it
was the year I discovered the freedom a digital camera offers. I have
carried a camera in my purse since 1999. That's nearly ten years now.
I wanted to be able to record moments of life as an exchange student.
It became a haibt to always carry my camera with me. In fact, the
non-expense of picture taking with a digital camera hit me so strong I
took so many pictures that year, I was so overwhelmed I quit printing
them out. Too hard to choose which ones to print.
In 2006, my brother came to Taiwan and my sister and good friend (as well as three others) got married. And, I took over 9000 photos to record these awesome events.
So, in 2008, life changing year, . . . wanna guess how many photos I took?
