The pictures that never were

14 Oct, 2010  |  4:49PM

I take a fair amount of pictures, but there are times that I don’t have my camera, and also times that I have it but don’t use it. There’s something about the moments that aren’t cataloged, where the only thing you have is that memory. I love pictures, but I find that there are often times where those moments mean so much more, because there isn’t that tangible prompting to the memory.

I think another element to that is I get to focus more on the moment, because I’m not trying to capture it. There’s a certain detachment when you’re behind a camera, and sometimes I can’t get enough of that. But sometimes I would really rather just experience the moment.
