Part of the impetus to start this blog was triggered by a long overdue clean up of my digital life. I started taking digital photos on my phone at the very end of 2006 just before moving from NZ to Europe, and then got an actual camera in 2008. Over the years I have upgraded phones several times and it wasn’t long before the phone became, once again, my primary camera. My photos were fairly well organised but spread across a couple of different locations, my slowly-dying-computer, the hard drive and Flickr. I am proud to say, they are all now in one place (and backed-up to a second place.)
I feel like I have been taking photos of street art “forever,” so you can imagine my surprise when I discovered (browsing thousands of photos) that my earlier photo albums hardly feature street art at all. Did I see it less, or was there less? I believe mostly the former, but maybe a combo. Granted I didn’t previously take as many photos as I do now. My good old Nokia6234 was a sturdy and reliable companion in my photographic endeavours, although looking back at the quality there’s barely a photo that’s not blurred.
Here’s what a found from 2007 to 2011. Not much!
