I take a lot of pictures with my phone. It is even easier than taking lots of pictures with a digital camera. Most of them I never post, because that’s not the point. Sometimes I’m taking the picture to keep a record of something. But when I do think about sharing a picture – which is usually when I’m traveling – I have a notion in my head what I want to share.
I start going through pictures and realize that my initial thought is wrong. Sometimes that picture I wanted to share just isn’t that good. But sometimes it is just too obvious. I don’t want to show that I’ve been to a place. That’s check mark photography, which goes along with check mark travel. I would rather share a more interesting picture. One that doesn’t look like every other picture of the same place.
