If there is anything I love doing, it’s looking through old photos.
Photographs are simple representations that carry incredible memories. They capture what was exactly in that moment, where it was and what you were feeling. That is why I treasure each and every photo I have.
Every single picture that you see or take, tells it’s own story. This box in front of me carries hundreds of photos that all have their own stories. These photos show people who I wish I could see again, it shows who was in my life at certain moments and how happy or sad I was. It shows how much I’ve grown up in my 18 years, what I looked like as a child, who I used to be and who I’ve become now.
Whenever I go somewhere, whether it’s a few hours away or a few days away, I try to capture each occasion. That way when I am old, I can look back at those moments and remember how I felt and what I was looking at. I can remember my first road trip, my first flight, my first time travelling to a place I’ve always dreamed of going to and the people I’ve met and connected with.
So whenever you have the chance, take photos and create memories that will last forever.
