Photographs show our relationships with people, the places we’ve travelled to, the events we’ve celebrated and honored. Of all the things that happen to us in the course of our lives, those which are most important get photographed, filed into books and albums that we leave behind like legacies. They provide evidence of our lives having meant something They are our own form of autobiography, a telling of the tale of who we are.
I am grateful.
Consider the people and events you have kept in photographs. Whether they are photos of parents or grandparents, family and personal events, friends, they are all meaningful. Think of the whys and whens. Express your gratitude,
I thank my God every time I remember you.
A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
Every photo you take communicates something about a moment in time – a brief slice of time of where you were, who you were with, and what you were doing.
When I look at my old pictures, all I can see is what I used to be but am no longer. I think: What I can see is what I am not.
It is impossible not to miss someone who was once a part of your life.
God has given us our memories that we might have roses in December.
A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.
A photograph can be an instant of life that will never cease looking back at you.
Each of us is an accumulation of our memories.
Alan Loy McGinnis
