Hi, again. I am back today to share some of my photos from the Deutsch Family Road Trip, 2015. (I am not sure why I feel the need to title our vacations, but I do.) Yesterday, I wrote about writing our vacation stories while on the road, without feeling the need to scrapbook them right away. Today, I will share some photos. In a way, this is the easy part of documenting vacations. Pulling out your camera, large or small, and snapping photos to capture all the fun and scenery.
As a scrapbooker though, as I take photos of our vacation, I wonder at the time, "What is the story here?" And that dictates some of the pictures I take.
There are the posed family photos that simply say, "we were here."
There are the photos that cover some of the details of the journey of our life on the road.
And there are the photos that tell the really rich stories.
Like, who we spent time with:
And how a city boy, who does not love nature, managed in a cabin surrounded by moths:
And about his brother, who is happy to be close to nature.
And then there are the photos that capture beauty and scenes that we don't get to see every day.
Trust me, there are many, many more. Some will get made into scrapbook pages, and some will just exist on the computer. Some of those scrapbook pages will tell stories, and others will just help display some favorite photos. I will share some of those layouts tomorrow.
