I love taking photos, Spud is 2.5 years old and has over 3000 photos on my pc. That doesn’t include the ones that were deleted. When Tara at Sticky Fingers announced that World Photography day was this weeks theme I was a little apprehensive. I love taking photos but I’m not exactly a master photographer. I take photos of fast moving children, probably one of the hardest subjects to capture. My photos are my memories, some are blurry, some are out of focus and most would have professional photographers cringing.
Then I read this quote:
“Today, we take our photographs for granted. But next time you’re flicking though photos from your last holiday, remember that there was once a time when photography didn’t exist. A time when those precious moments couldn’t be captured, uploaded and shared”.
I realised that it wasn’t about skill but about how amazing it is that we have technology to freeze moments in time. It was about my love of photographs and my love of memories. My children are growing at speed right and in the blink of an eye they will be adult men towering over me. I chose to make a memory of my two gorgeous boys and the joy that the simple things bring.
