Time and Photographs Stand Still For No Man
I recently read an article that gave me a new insight. Shedding Light on Your Life and Times highlights what a heritage we are building up by taking photographs.
Shedding Light on Your Life and Times is a reminder that what you photograph today will, one day, become a reminder of the past. Possibly your work will be a subject for research at some time in the future. This is true of everything in your pictures.
Photography already reaches back 150 years. The pictures have chronicled some incredible changes in that time. What will your images say about you in another 150 years? It is possible – even probable – your photographs will be passed down your family for hundreds of years. The next time you take a photograph consider what you are showing to future generations. It might be important to you. It might be history to them!
