Make Memories that are JUST YOURS

This summer, put your phone away for a few days.

Make some memories that no-one knows about.

Make some memories that are just yours

I stumbled upon this image and just had to blog it because I feel so strongly about it.

And may I add that you try to engrave these personal memories in your brain. Not just through photos. Take mental photos. Enjoy the view – the sun, the sand, the sea – with your own eyes and not just the camera lens. I see people spending the whole duration of musical performances just taking videos and photos. What a waste! Try to soak in the experience with just your senses and you’ll be amazed at how much you will appreciate it.

Go out there and make your secret memories!

The Best Sunset Photos

What makes a sunset so beautiful? Is it the way it paints the light blue canvas with a multitude of deep reds, oranges, and purples? Is it the way the water reflects these colors, or the way the city is bathed in them? Is it because it signals the winding down of the day, the anticipation of clocking off from work to party with friends or settle down at home?

Whatever the reason, a sunset is always guaranteed to bring us a peaceful mindset. Here are some of the best photos of sunsets I’ve seen on the Internet:

The first does not veer far away from home. It’s a photo of Arizona taken by Gene Hanson. There is something very poignant about the shadow of a lone cactus and its dynamic backdrop.

Even the dreariness of winter cannot dampen the vivacity of sunset, as seen by this picture of Fairbanks, Alaska. The colors are more pastel and slightly subdued but just as beautiful:

Even the giraffes are at awe over the sunset in Africa. Image was taken from Pinterest but actual source is unknown.Image

I could go on and on here but I’ll stop with just these three. Do you have a sunset photo to share?
