I know I’ve talked about this before, but for me photography is about capturing the feelings and emotions that reside in any given moment. Not something thing that is easily achieved.
Sometimes, it is things that only I can see and feel. The things that I feel when I look at a picture I took. Sometimes those pictures serve as markers in time for me. I may not remember the date the picture was taken, but I always remember what I was feeling in that moment.
There are pictures that are very powerful to me. If I look at them and close my eyes, it is like I am in that spot all over again. The pictures serve as a reminder for me to not forget. Good or bad, these are the moments that make me feel.
The following image is one of the powerful ones.
I will never forget where I was when I took this, or why I was there. I know exactly how I felt that day, and why. I also remember everything that happened after this shot was taken as well. This picture makes me feel, and fills me with emotion.
For me, photography acts as a journal or diary. Recording everything that matters.
