A brochure from a cruise line came in the mail today. It had an eye-grabbing picture on the cover, which I admired for a moment before I realized that I had taken the exact same picture.
On the Greek island of Mykonos.
Obviously, this is a scene that begs anyone holding a camera to lift it to eye level and click.
The water, the sky, the colors, the buildings, the splash of the surf…mesmerizing.
I loved that moment. I loved being there, I loved the feeling of being there. I loved that the best picture I took was the one in my mind, not in my camera. The picture that let me identify the picture on the brochure. It’s called memory, and this was one of my favorite memories.
I have many pictures like this in my mind.
I am a very lucky guy.
