Default memories of VS about

Hi,

Could somebody explain to me the difference in meaning between:

memories of and memories about

Example:
He had many memories of the countryside.
He had many memories about the countryside.

Is the 2nd sentence correct?

Thank you in advance.

Default Re: memories of VS about

Both are used. To me "memories about" sounds strange, but I googled it and it comes up a lot. And then when I did a Google battle, memories about came up as being more frequent than memories of.

Which just goes to show that you can never trust your intuition when it comes to language ...
