“A photograph isn’t ‘just’ a picture, it isn’t ‘just’ art. It’s a memory frozen in time & emotions.”
I’ve always wanted every attainable juncture or precious moment to be clicked. Some of my friends asked me why? Why I always want to have photographs of every single hangout and then spend so much time on it just to make it look something imaginative. Instead, I feel why not? Don’t you want to keep your memories unscathed? Don’t you want to feel the beauty of ordinary things & fascinating colors which Allah has created?
Life goes on! And time to time in this diligent world, some of those alluring moments vanish from our minds and that typical loveliness is simply over-looked.
There is something in photography which makes it utterly unique. It’s not just an art of creation, but a riddle of words and sculpture. It brings life to unnoticeable little beauties and ravishes the instant when the photographer captures it. By holding it still, which obviously time can’t.
The verve which is put into it bewitches me. I chatter about seeing the engrossing extra-ordinary things and can’t help but feel an obligation to record them for souvenir. Obligation is just the word: an impulse to share what strikes the mind’s eye.
We friends, just recently picked up the laptop with interest to see our pictures. After spending 7 years together, we fancied how much we have changed now. Those endless striking memories, those childlike faces and silly things we used to do. All those Kodak moments reminded us of all the occasions we spent with each other. All those random flashes made us grin & laugh head over heels-we had captured something priceless and it made our hearts contented. It was like an index of our emotions which flowed out of the picture.
So, turn the pages of life & smile. Time waits for no one so treasure every moment you have with your loved ones & don’t let your memories slip away. Always remember, “Photos certainly bring beautiful flashbacks!”
‘Keep posing & clicking!’ 😉
