Take Your Lover With You on a Holiday!

2011-06-19 14

You go on a holiday and can’t take your lover with you? You wish to be with him/her at all these great sightseeing spots, but he/she has to work, to go to university or whatever… here’s a little idea for you!

Recently I got the impression, that holidays are all about taking pictures. As soon as one takes a picture with a digicam, one can upload it to facebook or whatever, and share in less than a minute with every friend they know. It’s not that different with analogue cameras, only it takes more time. Sometimes I need to tell myself to put the cams away and to have a look like that at all the great things! Maybe you all know about it…

When I am back, sometimes I find things on my pictures, which I can’t remember. But I have seen them, the picture is the proof!

This made us think, that I could “manipulate” my holiday pictures like my girl had been with me! I took one layer of her, and then one layer of all the great tourist spots – here they are!

This makes us a nice souvenir of her in San Francisco – although she has never been there ;)
