4040 - So Many Stories Told

This was the my first time in Brixen / Bressanone. I’m 53. I may visit the town once more in my life, but I’m not sure. It’s not because I didn’t like what I saw (much to the contrary!), it’s because the world is too big and too beautiful.

The cloister is full of beautiful imagery. Stories over stories. I’ve taken a few pictures, and the framing was more determined by my compositional style than by anything content-related. It’s sad in a way: I most likely won’t ever see more of those stories than I do now, when I look at my images. It’s also true that I did not concentrate on seeing while I was there. I concentrated on framing.

But then: I’ve been in places where I didn’t take images, places where I did concentrate on seeing, and now all is lost, all is gone from my memory. These images at least will remain.

It's your birthday today? If so, then happy birthday! And I'm more than 7 years older...

No, not my birthday, but thanks anyway 🙂 I just mentioned my age, because given how much I've done so far, I can estimate what's still possible. And doing so, I found that whatever I'm going to see in the future, it will likely be the last time.
