My Analogue Days: Little Daily Battles

2013-04-06

Nowadays, we depend so much on technology that we forget about life’s little pleasures of when we were not so hooked to our gadgets.

Don’t misunderstand me, I am one of those who get really excited about the new inventions and developments which save us time and allow us to connect with people who are a thousand miles away with just one click. However, I realize that if I don’t make a pause every once in a while, I can lose contact with things that are actually very important to me.

I have to be honest, it’s difficult for me to disconnect and put my gadgets away, but when I incorporated analogue photography back to my life (after years of only using digital), I realized that sometimes, things that take some more time are the things I enjoy the most.

I guess that this fist step has made me think about making an extra effort to take up again analogue activities:

I guess that we all have our little daily battles, what are yours?
