I love collections. If I actually stayed in one place long enough I fear that my house would be piled to the roof with random wine corks, sea shells, old books, masks, cool bottles, papers with pretty designs on them etc. (I do actually have accumulations started of all of these things, but because I am on the move a lot, they are kept at a manageable ‘small enough to store in a box at my mom’s place’ amount. While coming across the different items is fun, carrying around all the stuff you picked up is not.)
So as a way to indulge in my love for collecting without becoming a hoarder, I use photos. This is actually a better way anyways because it greatly expands what you can ‘collect’. Bridges, smiles, beaches, trees, windows, and cool old suitcases all become easily collectible thanks to photography.
Here is a sample of one of the first ones that I started some years ago:
DOORS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.
Although a nomadic lifestyle makes it difficult to carry a lot of stuff around, traveling is a great way to build up some fascinating collections. Does anyone have any interesting or unusual ones on the go?
