LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

IS IT TRUE THAT OUR SMART PHONES SEE MORE THAN US?

We are migrating from Mac to Mac and it is that time of the year to back things up. This is a very significant period of our lives. We have just quit our jobs. It was not an easy decision but a very good one nonetheless. We have managed to spot the unappreciative employer and gotten out early. Yikes. Writing about it still pisses us so much.

Anyway, 8000 over photos later, we really need to back up all these memories. How does one take so many photographs in over a year? What a shocker. Imagine if we were back in the times when  we had to process and develop our film, how much would that have cost us? All of us were probably so much more careful with taking photographs, possibly more selective with the type of memories we want to keep. And then now, in this crazy era, it is like an impromptu manner of keeping everything. We wonder how much we see with our own eyes really. It seems everything is through the smart phone these days. Isn't it strange that about one and a half decades ago,  The Matrix warned us about machines taking over our lives. So, are our smart phones seeing more than we are.

It is proving to be a chore to back up our photographs from the phone. It seems that there are a few images or videos that are corrupted or 'in an unrecognizable format' as the very clever phone says. So we are unable to import all our photographs. We are doing it manually just so that we can spot the corrupted files.

Now that we are importing our photos, looking at some of these are rather alien to us. How many of these did we really experience in real life? Or, did we actually lose out on life that these smart phones are now seeing more than us?
