I take my camera pretty much everywhere. And I mean everywhere. If I don't have my camera with me, I feel a little lost. I think a few people have written about this before, about how, 'If it isn't instagrammed, it didn't happen.' kinda thing. And I'm most probably more than guilty of this. There's so many times when I'm out and about, that I take a photo with the sole intention of it ending up on Instagram.
I love Instagram and I love my blog. I love that they've both become ways of being able to document my life, of writing about days that I've loved and my favourite things. I love the idea of being able to look back through them both in years and years and being able to reminisce and remember all of the things.
But, do we spend too much of our time looking through a lens?
I visited Edinburgh last week. I spent a good 4 hours exploring the city with my camera, and at one point, I just stopped for a second and actually spent a little while just looking. I realised that sometimes I get so caught up in capturing a moment for my future self, and for others, that I sometimes forget to appreciate it for myself, there and then.
What do you think?
