Connection between travel writing and photography

Bookmark and Share

The connection between writing and photography is two-fold. I take photographs to augment and reinforce the diary I write on my travels. Both serve the purpose of preserving memory. As time passes, one tends to lose the details of events and places. The diary reminds me how the event unfolded and the image connects the event to the place. Finally, the image compliments my write-up and takes distant places into the homes of readers, whatever few there may be. Some of the images are uploaded on this blog as well.
