One of the best feelings in the world is the exhilaration of being alive and present in a beautiful moment. Cameras can help us capture these moments and photographs allow us to preserve them indefinitely. I have many such moments stored right at my hip in my trusty iPhone. In fact, I have thousands and thousands of moments saved there. Even though these pictures span several years, a handful of countries, and many unique moments — honestly, several of these photos are completely worthless.
I noticed this when I was scrolling through my pictures, trying to find something specific from 2012. While some photos sparked forgotten memories, others simply provoked questions with the central theme — why haven’t I deleted this yet? Pictures of empty sidewalks, vending machines, and even trash cans have been retained for very many years in the depths of my iPhone unperturbed. I guess this just goes to show that I don’t look at my photos as much as I think I do. As I was in the process of deleting these photos of nothing, I decided to cut down on digital waste (lol), by recycling these photos for a new purpose….
In honor of these misfit photos, I have decided to dedicate this post to showcasing the odd sights and angles that I have “treasured” over the years. Specifically, take a trip around the world and see all the things, people have not bothered to capture via camera.
Bon voyage, dear Reader…
