I love taking photographs but I wouldn’t call myself a photographer. An amateur photographer if I can call myself that. I like to take photos of memories at most. Alot of people say ‘oh, people need to stop taking photographs all the time and just use your eyes. Use your eyes and leave the image in your mind’. I do agree to this to a certain extent but don’t you find your mind wanders at times?
It’s good to reflect back to the detail and then those memories stored in your mind can remind you of all your other senses. The smell of the culture, the breeze on you skin, the light warming your face. I do whatever is necessary to hold onto timeless memories.
I hope my weekly entries give you an insight into them.
