What a beautiful thing a photo is. It is a memory saved, a precious time re-visited, or a person who is no longer with us treasured.
There is an amazing song by Counting Crows called "Mrs. Potter's Lullabye" that has a lyric that has always stunned me.
"If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts."
Photographs are stills from those movies. Go make a movie. Go make a memory. And document it with a photograph so that when it's gone, you can still touch it.
