I was looking for a certain photo that I had taken a couple of years ago on my iPhone when I came across a folder called iPhone dump. I am constantly creating folders called dump when I am in a hurry and need to dump my cards and get out the door. Sometimes I totally forget what I’ve dumped and never go back to look what’s in those folders, but today I was so excited to look through every one of these photos that recorded our time as a family from 2009 to mid 2010.
I’ve been known to spend hours looking through old photos, hanging on each one and reliving the memories it holds. I guess it’s only natural that photography has always been one of my loves, even before I turned it into a profession I was always the one with the camera at all the family events capturing our lives and holding on to those memories.
As I looked through these photos, I can remember each and every event that it captured. I can remember where I was when I took it and why I took it. They tell my story, one that if I didn’t have photos I might not remember completely. They help me hold on a little to the past.
