Capture it, Remember it.

A picture is worth a thousand words

Whenever you look at a photograph, a wave of memories flood in. Whether good or bad, you’re suddenly transported in time, for just a moment, to relive that memory. 

It can last as long as you want it to last. It can last for minutes or just a split second. You’re there.  Wherever or whenever that was. 

Who was there? You’re the eyes of the future, a stranger, a time traveler looking into the past as a third person.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a flashback from ten years or the photos from yesterday’s lunch, the day’s events are frozen and able to be carried around in your pocket wallet, stuck on a wall, preserved in a frame, shared with friends and family- the minds souvenir.

I don’t think we realise how this effects our memory. Years from now you can look into a photo of a random get together at your friend’s house and remember snippets and highlights of that day.

I also think social media pages like Instagram and Facebook really help in this. Think of these sites as a scrapbook. You can flip through them whenever you want and recall a hundred of these memories in no time. Serious nostalgia.

In conclusion I basically wanted to say – photographs, magical things. We need to appreciate their value more.

After all it’s a million little things that make up this universe ❤
