What To Do With Miscellaneous Travel Photos

If you’re anything like me, you’ll have a billion photos after a weekend trip. In addition to 50 awkward yet identical selfies behind a famous landmark, I’ll also have pictures of the landmarks themselves, and trees, flowers, dogs – you name it.
When I moved into my apartment recently, I planned on buying the standard wall painting from Ikea – flowers blowing in the wind, contemporary art that makes no sense, or a wall rug.
Instead, I developed those miscellaneous pictures from my travel collections, and created a travel collage.
Maybe it’s not up to National Geographic’s standards, but it’s a personal memory that creates a story, a sense of nostalgia, and most of all, it generates a way more interesting answer than, “I bought this at a generic furniture store”.





Photographs and Flags

Prompt: 500 years from now, an archaeologist accidentally stumbles on the ruins of your home, long buried underground.

This is my bedroom as of Monday morning. If someone were to find its remains in 500 years, they would come to the same conclusion as anyone else looking at these photos in 2014.

– She traveled very far to reach her destination (as evidenced by the nostalgic ambience of a massive Canadian flag).
– She has no valuable possessions.
– She loved to move around (39 postcards and counting).
– She was in love, and surrounded herself with people who made her a better person.
– This was a temporary living space, because “home” was a series of different cities around the world.
