Technology sometimes makes me wish we lived in the old days, even the dark ages sounds better than some of the modern days we live in.
It moves too fast and just does too much, opens too many doors and let’s face it – it’s just information overload!
But this Thursday I was so happy to have access to the internet/technology/equipment and tools that made this possible….
My baby cousin was getting married in Brisbane, Australia on 14 November 2013 at 11h00. Holding my iPhone (I confess I now love it). I checked the times and weather in Australia and set my alarm for 03h15 (the bride is always late so I gave her 15 minutes). I was up at that awful hour, and so glad it’s summer. Then with a click or two on the link they provided I got to be part of the wedding – via Ustream.
JHB, South Africa – it’s still dark at 04h00 but the birds are waking up and starting to sing. I sat in the lounge in the stillness of that early morning clutching my phone and these images got the tears rolling….
These small images were screen shots from the wedding video, the bad quality did not distract or ruin anything, the early hour and tiredness the next day was cured with a cup of coffee. It was just awesome to see my little family, unaware that they were being watched so far away….I have not seen some of them for more than 20 years. This little bit here is precious TREASURE to me!!
