Recently I went on holiday to Greece with my boyfriend and for a week I didn’t use my phone at all. As part of this “digital detox” I thought it would be a fun idea to take a disposable camera with us.
Now I’m 25 years old which means I grew up on film cameras. I know the anxiety of only having one chance to get the perfect photo. I know the excitement of going to a shop to get them developed. And I know the disappointment when you see the results.
My mum had a film camera we would use and for holidays/festivals I would get disposable cameras with my friends. But I don’t remember using one after I got my first smart phone when I was 20.
Since coming back from holiday I have become that person. That relative of yours who wants to sit you down and show you their slideshow of holiday snaps. And I am not ashamed.
Having physical photos from our trip is so much fun! But I also got digital versions so now dear readers I’m asking you to sit through my holiday snaps slide show. Please indulge me.
(please note that all the photos I’m showing you are just ones of me or landscapes. my boyfriend was with me on this trip but we’re keeping his identity private. thanks for understanding)
This was the view from our Airbnb. SO beautiful!
Classic disposable camera finger shot.
In the most gorgeous blue water!
Another finger shot.
Me on some rocks after a hike.
Super flattering angle reading on the beach featuring bum bruise & “sunbeds for rent” sign.
A pair of massive tits and a woman in the water.
And finally, our Airbnb was West facing so we got the most stunning sunset every evening.
Thanks for sitting through that. I just wanted to share my holiday snaps online because I love sharing (aka showing off about how great my holiday was).
I would highly recommend taking a disposable camera with you on your next trip!
