If you didn’t know by now, I’ll let you in on a (not-so-)little secret: I’m a bit obsessed with photography. I experience much of my life through the lens, and I remember through pictures.
It’s difficult for me to separate photographs of good technical quality with those that have a strong sentimental tie, because I have similar reactions to both. The former are like the good child – always doing well in school, someone who brings great pride. The latter are also like children (they’re a piece of you), and while they may not perform as admirably, the mother loves them for all of the happy moments and experiences.
