Virtual orphans

Every photo tells its own story, and we find it challenging – and a little magical – to take a handful of chosen photos to weave the tale of our travels. The rest of the many photos we’ve taken – but not chosen to use — sit shelved in our photo library, virtual orphans. These orphans have their own tales to tell, and through no fault of theirs, just did not get to tell their stories…until now.

We went back in search of those orphan photos that just called out to see the light of day. See if you agree that these landscapes of distant places are worthy of transporting you far, far away.

The beauty of photography is not just in the art form. Seeing each photo brings back the precise moment we snapped the shutter. If we closed our eyes, we could so easily go back. With so many stories to be told by all the photos shelved in our virtual library, we have many years ahead to relive all those wonderful trips again.

    I only realised how many orphans I had when I was forced to relocate them and my folders “went south”. It took a long time to get the basics sorted, will be an opportunity to relive too many years memories when I finally get around to finishing the task.

  2. The beauty of digital is that we can have as many photos as we want and they take up no space in our cupboards. It’s nice to go back through photos and remember wonderful holidays.

  3. Now that I am having fun with a camera, the photos are mounting up and up. Turkey has an allure for me, and before I read the caption in your photo here, I thought ‘that place, that’s the one I want to see’ – happy travels to SA!
