Wanna go to Mexico?
It’s been a while since I’ve made an audio slideshow, but today I came across more great examples on my favorite travel writing website, World Hum–inspiring slideshows like Abbie Kozolychk‘s “The Family Jewels” and an older one I just discovered, Doug Mack‘s Not-So-Flattering Views of Famous European Landmarks. I love the way the slideshows let you experience the photos at the same time the words are being read. I don’t know exactly how to put it, but the effect they have on me always nears that of being mesmerizing.
And so on the plane ride over to London last night, I worked on my own slideshow, “Wanna go to Mexico?” about the roadtrip my brother and I recently took from Kansas to Virginia. Maybe I was aiming to mesmerize as well, or maybe I simply didn’t have the heart to narrow down my photos for a standard blog post. Either way…enjoy!
