What happens when you die?

September 8, 2014










I’ve been thinking about this a lot. Not particularly about when I physically die, but what will happen to the photos I’ve been posting online all this time?

What if someone saves my photos in a hard drive? What if that hard drive is found some time in the future, in a flea market or something of that sort? Will I be gracing the pages of the future Pinterest as an oddity or a typical citizen of our time, wearing some funky clothes? Anonymously, most likely. Just an anonymous smiley face like many others.

We will never know what’s going to happen, but I would like to think that we (by we, I mean anyone who takes pictures these days, particularly digitally) don’t do it in vain. If my photos will give some future lady the same pleasure I get from seeing fun photos from past decades, it’ll all be worth it.

Photos taken as usual, at the North Acton Cemetery, during a lunch break. Will be joining the ladies over at Visible Monday with my simple outfit, comprising a TK Maxx dress, a second hand satchel, some tights bought on sale from Primark and some really really old sparkly Zara flats. . I am also happy to announce that there will be lot’s of blogging this week around these parts. Yay!
