I tried to take some photos, once. Last year in fact. I promise I was motivated by boredom and not a delusion that I have talent. I’m sharing them now for lack of confidence in the remaining old blog posts left for Flashback Fridays.
Anyway, this is them. And no, I don’t even have a good camera or any kind of proper editing software. I’m amateur through and through. Though I do like to argue that a photographer, a true one, can take a beautiful snap without fancy cameras and editing programmes and sets.

Well, these are my first 3 so they must be awfully dreadful.
Ah well, at least I didn’t snap them on my phone and run them through a ‘filter’ then post them for likes, right? (Instagram jokes are still in, yeah?)
Take photos. Take them for yourself. Snap pictures of beautiful things, beautiful moments, the people you love, your home, outside your window, your children, when you looked most pretty, the first time this or that happened. Take photos because you won’t remember how beautiful life really was back then, now, without reminders. You won’t remember how precious life is, or how fast time really does go by. You’ll make sure to continue making moments and memories when you document the great stuff. And the bad stuff too; take that last photo of your old pets, your sick grandfather, demolition, destruction, smoke, heartbreak. Because it’s all life, and it’s your life, and don’t you want to remember it?
