Its funny, I am such a talker but when it comes to talking about myself I find it difficult. I guess this all began when I bought my first Nikon before a trip to Mexico. Even before then I was always taking pictures. I would make regular runs to the dollar store and buy a disposable cameras. fill them up and sometimes double expose the images because I forgot they were full. Those were good times looking at my six month old son with a tree growing through his head, we’ll call it interpretive art, LOL. It wasn't until I read this quote that all of that disposable drama made sense.
"If you don’t think photos are important, wait until they are all you have left."
How true is that? I can remember visiting my family in Warrensburg, Mo when I was a kid and loving to go because I just knew I was going to have a great time there with my family. Now as an adult all I have are memories and photos of most of them and it seems as though the visits only happen for sad situations anymore.
The sad part is this is a situation we can all relate to. Because of this I decided that memories are worth having and if I couldn't take anything else with me when I left this earth then I could take my memories. So I better start recording them; I started documenting my life, my family as much as I could.
