A few weeks ago, I talked about how I moved my photos from Box to Google Photos manually. The process was cumbersome. However, there was a bright side to all that moving photos manually. I saw almost all of them and that brought memories.
Photographs are important. I understand that we’re creating way too many photos now courtesy smartphones. However, I still think no one should discourage someone from recording a moment. All that talk about “living the moment” may be correct in it’s own right but it’s still talk and you’re free to do what you want. So, click a photo of that wonderful gourmet dish or of that random moment on a trip because memory, it turns out, isn’t as reliable and some moments just slip through the cracks.
To keep privacy intact, I will post no photos that involve people. These are buildings, views, objects but each one of them brings back a certain memory and that is the point I’m trying to make. You don’t need a perfect group photo. You don’t need anything. All you need is a gentle reminder that brings you right back to where you were at the time.
Here is a long collection of photos. None of them is spectacular in particular. These are just plain photos. Without people. That still brought back wonderful memories. Each of these photos is amateur-ish but the remind me of so much. They remind me…
It’s funny how 145 random photos can bring out so many minute yet relatively significant moments from my life. If you take nothing else away from this post, take this:
You like a moment. You get off your high horse and you capture it. Howsoever you can. Deal?
