My Life

A Picture Tells how many words? | September 13, 2006

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. – PD James

I Don’t know where this came from exactly, but I’ve been really thinking about this a lot lately. Why is it that when you see a picture of a place or think about what it will be like, the actual place rarely matches the image yo uhad in your mind?

We humans like to romanticize, I suppose. A picture of a hazy mountain scene taken early in the morning doesn’t actually look that way when you’re there. First, the camera blocks out the fact that there are things going on to the left or right that you may not see. Also, who knows what Photoshop wonders have been performed.

The only place that ever lived up to my ideals have been my trips to Europe. It always surprises me with new and wonderful memories everytime I have been there.

That’s it for now.

About author

I'm just a guy trying to get through this crazy thing called life. I set this site up to store quotes that I've heard, read or made up on my own. Some are from famous people and some are just things that me or someone in my presence said that rang out as "Quot-a-ble".
