Dedicated to all collectors and souvenir lovers.
On My Shelves is my new photo project via Instagram smartphone app. I have a good number of shelves and cabinets in my office. Most of them are filled with the “good time reminders”- bring-backs from my travels. There is also stuff I have collected over the years,- the collection of vintage photo cameras, autographed photos and posters, travel photo albums, books and magazines, etc.
As everybody else, I used to collect travel magnets. My fridge was covered with magnets pretty quickly :) So I started bringing home foreign pens and pencils. I love office supplies! Also I’ve been collecting travel themed coffee mugs and bar-branded beer coasters for several years. If you are about to start your mug collection, note, those babies take a lot of real estate :) The “mug sickness” ended when I cracked my favorite English Porcelain ‘Mind The Gap’ mug I brought from London. Since 2007 I try to bring home a wooden figurine or little statue from every place I travel to, building my own terracotta warriors army :)
I have promised so many times to share pictures of my bring-backs… Finally, here it is, my new project dedicated to all collectors and souvenir lovers, On My Shelves. To be continued…
Please excuse the quality, all photos have been taken via Instagram app on Samsung T679 Exhibit II Android Smartphone and have not been edited outside of Instagram.
