I’m back in England now for a little while, just got back a few hours ago. This is the last picture I took before I left Spain – just a quickie with the phone this time!
For those “in the know” you can probably tell by the caption on the photo that this is a Snapchat photo. I am normally pretty slow to pick up on new fads or ideas. I like to think of myself as bucking the trends and not following the crowd whenever a new sensation is out there. For example, I shunned all the Lord of The Rings films for about five years after they were released, pretty sure that I would not like them even if the rest of the world did. Then, one day I watched the first one. And got hooked. Loved them. So much so that I even read the book as well. So to get back to the point. I keep hearing about Snapchat and again had shunned it, wasn’t interested in downloading it. You get the idea. Until today. I gave in. I downloaded it and have my own life story on it already! I have to say though, although it’s quick and easy, it’s just a bit of fun and I don’t like the fact that you don’t get to look back on the photos that you take. For those that don’t know, you take a picture or short video and send it to one or more of your contacts. Once they have viewed it (for up to ten seconds, you can choose the time it is viewable for) they cannot view it again. It’s gone. No memories are created. Which, in all honesty, if it’s being used by kids and drunk teenagers in bars and clubs, could very well be the best thing. But me, I like to create memories and look back at them whenever I want to, so while I may use Snapchat now and then I certainly won’t be giving up my Nikon and trusty memory card anytime soon.
This post was going to be about Easter and now it’s turned out to be all about ten second photos. Well let me tell you that I have consumed all the bunnies that you can see in the above photo, and I am going to be starting my new healthy eating regime tomorrow. I’m going to order that juicer as well and cannot wait to get my hands on that!
Well, I hope you all had a great Easter or if you do not celebrate Easter then I hope you had a great weekend!
