I Take Photos

August 20th, 2014

I take photos to remember. Life speeds up with alacrity, yet my memory does not. The photographic moments of the past that seemed so insignificant and trivial become the key that unlocks memories of the past. A plate of food, a sunrise, a smile, are all piled deep with layers of surrounding memories that I never want to forget.

I take photos to forget. Regret and mistakes plague my life and seem to be etched in my memory permanently. The moments that a photo captures are capable of erasing those failures and replacing them with times I forget to remember.
