Truth - Photo Freak

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  They say nothing lasts forever.  What is celebrated though are things that do last a very long time. Things such as buildings, points of interest, landmarks, vehicles, clothing, furniture, collectibles.  There's a whole laundry list of items that last a very long time.

So we celebrate things that last forever; for the most part. The Washington monument for example has been around for a very long time. People flock to see it everyday. However the homeless dude who made the sand castle version at the beach gets a blip on the radar screen of history.

There is beauty in things that do no last forever. People ask me why I take pictures of food. I take pictures of food because you will never ever see that form of cells in that exact sequence again.  Like a person exists, that form of food will never ever exist again.  Why not preserve it?  Ever take a picture of the ocean? Those waves are gone forever that you took.  Take a picture of some waves, and preserve its history.

Things change all of the time, and mostly they go away into forever never to be seen or heard from again. I have 50,000 photos taken in the last 8 years. That comes to about 17 photos a day.  Is that really alot? Not in the digital world.  Professionals do way more than that...even amateurs who are picture happy take more.  Nevertheless, I like to preserve things, and I know that that sequence of events, or structure will never ever happen again.

I take solace in knowing that.

I do know that experiencing things are more important than photographs.  I'm not saying it is just as important. I'm just saying take a picture, you may have something that no one has ever seen before or ever will again.
