Snapshots thru time...

Just thinking out loud again...just came back from a fab night out chillaxing. Needed it...wish I had photos to post but my darn BlackBerry phone pics were off with the lighting:(( It's too bad. Funny how photos can bring the past alive...whether it's an hour ago, 1 year ago, 5 years, 10 years or 30 years ago. Recently I've been going through my old photos over the years on my computer. Wow! I just love taking pictures and looking at pictures, capturing memories and preserving them. (My friends often give me "the look" every time I whip out my camera! but they are often pleased with the end result) My how I've changed! Happy, fun times. Love it. Have you ever looked at a picture and suddenly you're taken back to that time and place?! That's how I feel. We've all changed physically and emotionally over the years...older, fatter, skinnier...experimented with different looks: short hair, long hair, straight hair, curly locks, natural, relaxed, coloured, streaks, highlights, shaven, braids, dreds, blonde, red, black, brunette. Traveled to places far and wide. Celebrated milestones in our life. Celebrated with loved ones. Some of us had babies even. Had different friends and partners. Some of those people may not even be in our lives anymore for any number of reasons. That's why I got me a professional camera on my last trip...sorry to say I haven't used it much...but that's gonna change. Tonight I realized how important capturing memories are when tonight's mementos were half-way ruined with my phone camera
