I’m slightly gobsmacked at the moment.
I signed into Google+ this evening, and while trying to create a profile noticed that I had over 250 photographs in “my albums”. Odd, considering I just created this account 5 minutes ago. I clicked on the album and it was every single photograph I ever posted on my old Blogger blog. My old, deleted Blogger blog that is.
At first I was a bit outraged, but then as I started clicking through the pictures it became more amusing than anything. Mainly a lot of art (remember Art Friday?), street art, owls, flying buttresses…so not too different from this page here, but the personal photographs caught me off guard. I know 5 years is not a long time ago, but it feels that way sometimes when searching through a digital archive.
Everything is so instant today, the fast pace leaves little time for reflection. This is why I know I’ll always keep this place, even if my updates become sparse, I need this time to spit out the word vomit, post silly pictures, and ask you ridiculous questions.
