Maybe we take pictures to help us go back in time.
As a parent, I made a conscious effort to take photos of a wide range of events, random activities, mountain vistas, my family and friends… and then print, share and catalog them.
For my grandson, I always have the camera nearby. Simple activities make the best photos. Seeing ants, worms and June bugs through the eyes of a 2 year old is like seeing them for the first time.
A photo is a gift we give to ourselves. It’s like writing in a journal – by reviewing the words or images, we are right back there again… reviewing a moment in time, breathing in that atmosphere from so long ago and feeling the same emotions all over again.
A photo is so much more than an image on paper, isn’t it?
