What this is.

Hi! My name is Max. I am 21 years old. Last semester I was abroad in Vienna Austria and traveled around Europe. It was an amazing and life changing experience. While I was in Austria and traveling I took a lot of photos. By a lot I mean a lot. I had a little over 10000 pictures that I took on my iPhone. Since I got back to the United States I’ve been sorting through these pictures. Needless to say it took a while to go through all those pictures. I wanted to pick the top 54 pictures, which would have been the number of pictures I could have taken had I only had two disposable cameras. Remember those? The annoying yellow things you would wind up and the flash would temporarily blind everyone within a 2 mile radius? Its weird because although the iPhone allowed me to take a ton of pictures, which I am grateful for, it made each picture mean a little less. When you had a disposable camera you really had to think about each picture you took because you had such a finite number. Most disposable cameras only allowed 27 pictures per camera. I did cheat a little bit because I just could not limit myself to 54 pictures, lets just pretend I had a disposable camera that had one extra picture, that happened right? I thought that restricting myself to this finite number of photos would simulate the experience of what it was like to have a disposable camera. There were cool pictures that I was forced to omit from this because I had to pick the top 55 pictures. Of course, you also had to struggle with the fact that you couldn’t even look at the pictures until you had all of them developed.  If I had the foresight to know what images would mean the most to me, these are the 55 pictures I would have taken with my two disposable cameras.

How the site works.

Feel free to scroll through the site, each picture will be posted in chronological order. I wrote a bit of information about each picture, some backstory, some details etc. I included a bit of that information at the bottom of each picture but if you want more hit the “Read More” button to get the full text for each picture. Once you hit the “Read More” button you can click the buttons on the bottom of the page to see each picture individually with the longer captions. Additionally theres a drop down menu on the top left with a little bit about myself and links to my various social media pages. On the top right you’ll find all the pictures conveniently posted if you just want to scroll through them.
