Back tracking.

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught in a photographed is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

That's what i said previously. Summed up into a quote that i would never be smart enough to create myself. That's it.

You take pictures to remember little details. So when, a year later, you open a file, you're heart skips a beat or two and you feel like crying. Because, it. all. comes. back.

That's what happened tonight, and that's why i take photos.

Was going through my albums tonight; and found that photo from New Zealand. Taken the day we arrived at our house in Queenstown. The lovely light and that fire in the background makes my heart hurt tonight. Looking at this photo i can almost feel the under floor heating, smell the soup cooking and hear the music through the speakers...

It's this photo in my mind during a double chem section that makes me feel a little better, and makes me remember the good stuff. It takes you away from the not so good stuff for a while :)

Anyway, so my word of advice tonight ladies and gentlemen?

Take way too many photos. Fill your memory card. Capture film. Because even if not now, a year later, two years or ten years later down the track, you will appreciate it. So, much.

  1. Good advice.

    For such a young girl, you have such a beautiful mind and such deep thoughts. Wise beyond your years.

    Keep it up, girl.
