Weekly Photo Challenge: Ooh, Shiny!

Whenever I travel, I bring along a pocket camera. It’s good enough for me since I have no patience fiddling with settings and stuff. Just like typical tourists, I tend to point and shoot indiscriminately, thanks to the availability of memory cards that can store thousands of pictures. If there’s one thing that differentiate me from the others, it’s that I don’t take selfies.

Even with an outstanding guide, distractions can happen on a tour. When they occur, a pocket camera can be your friend. Just draw and fire at will to save them for posterity.

Seeing the familiar in unfamiliar places provides a pleasant distraction to me. It could be as simple as the sight of clothes hanging out to dry. For one thing, it reminds me of the place I grew up in the Philippines. On the other, it’s gratifying to experience this common thread that binds people regardless of geography and distance.

As for any distraction that has become more of an inconvenience than anything else, I suggest that you treat it as part of the experience. Who knows? Many years down the road, when time has smoothened its rough edges, you’d be able to remember it with fondness.
