I’ve always just loved taking images, I fell in love with it at such a young age and my brother bought me my first SLR two years ago for my birthday, I was so excited. I started taking my camera literally everywhere I went, taking pictures of everyone and everything, I love the whole concept of the camera catching a moment that can last you forever, it makes me feel happy especially because at that point in my life I wasn’t exactly ‘myself’ I guess you could say and my camera was something that truly made me happy. I kind of zone out when I take photographs, I feel as if though I’m in a different world, I have fun with it, I even love the sound the camera makes when it takes a photo and the flash going off. One of my favourite quotes tells you why I love taking photographs.
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” - Andy Warhol
Andy makes an excellent point, all people/things I’ve taken pictures off will change in some way but a photo will be the same forever and you can look back on those photos and some may bring back happy memories and some sad but you will always have that memory.
