I’ve wiled away many hours this week working on my portfolio for the study abroad trip to France. It already feels like it happened much longer ago than it did. My stretched-too-thin brain balks at the idea that it really was just earlier this month!
One of the things that I’ve had to do a lot of while building this portfolio is work with the pictures I took. It’s been a bit frustrating. At the time, I was all like, these are going to be great pictures! But as I look at them now I can’t imagine what I was thinking. There are a few gems but mostly I spend a lot of time wishing for the pictures I didn’t take.
Clearly, I’m not an undiscovered talent in photography. The pictures aren’t bad, they just don’t actually show a whole lot. I wish I’d have taken more pictures of people. I wish I would have fought through the group to get straight-on pictures of some of the things I do have shots off. I have a lot of off-to-the-side shots. I hope I remember this next time I document an adventure in photographs!
As they say, hindsight is 20/20.
I did do something a little off-beat (ok, let’s just say it…odd) and it is that which I am leaving you with today. I took a bunch of pictures of the views through the windows of the various places we visited. The hotel, various museums and monuments, the bus, nothing was safe.
And so I leave you with what is probably my last post about France: Views from French Windows.
The next France-related post you see here will hopefully be me celebrating my completed portfolio and hopefully it’ll be soon!
