“If you see something that moves you, and then snap it, you keep a moment.” – Linda McCartney 

I’m trying to keep all of the precious moments I encounter in my life. No, they don’t need to be picture perfect, I just simply want to remember them. I was going through a bunch of my photo’s today since they’ve been tucked and hidden away. I couldn’t let that be any longer. I sat down and went through my memories. It was one of the best time’s in my life, reliving a million memories.

Memories are a big reason why I even started indulging into the beautiful art that is photography. There is no such thing as having TOO many photo’s and if there is, then I’m guilty as charged!

I realized that at one point in my life, I won’t be able to remember everything that has happened in my life. I wanted to start documenting it now, so I have plenty to look back on, and also have some helpful reminders of those days that made me smile. Every day is an adventure if you let it be one. Appreciate the little things. Never say “I didn’t do anything” or “nothing new happened today“, because there should always be ONE highlight of your day, no matter how big or how small, as long as it’s significant to YOU.

I used to be a bit ashamed when going through my hard drive and looking at all the photo’s I took, most that other people would give me the weirdest look and ask “why did you take a photo of that?“. But, now I could really care less. I want to see the progress of what catches my eye and makes me smile or giggle. Let’s see what life has in store for the rest of my life. I’m not going to regret it!

Every photo you take is a single captured moment that will never change, even 100 years from now. Sure, the people will change, the setting will in reality, but never in that photo. Once you look at that photo, you can remember that beautiful day, moment, hour, minute or second, because it happened.

Sometime’s the best moments aren’t captured; some are fuzzy, some are blurry, some are abstract, but they’re still there. And that’s all that counts. I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything in this world~
