Cameras Are Our Time Machines: Why I Never Leave Home Without My Camera & Always Snap One More Photo by MomThoughts
Photographs have the unique gift of taking us back in time, of capturing a moment as it was and as we were. Memory is a fickle thing, it's subject to time and perception and our complicated brains. Photographs are just that – snapshots of a world frozen in place. And cameras are our time machines.
I am the friend you may regret bringing with you on a hike, while I lag behind to take photos of flowers. I'm that friend who says, "Let's take one more selfie." I take photos of old homes and glowing sunrises. I take candid photos and posed photos, photos of my family, photos of my life. And I don't regret any of it.
When I look back at those photos, I remember the moments as they were. They evoke feelings I'd forgotten, like the sound of the rain or the smell of a campfire. My memories are contained in time, just as they were, even as everything around me changes. They remain ever the same.
I won't ever regret being that friend who says, "Just one more photo."
