With time our memories fade. The colors are less vibrant, the smells less intense, and the plots of our stories change slightly with every retelling.
A moment captured in a photograph stays with us as long we possess it. It has the power to keep alive to the senses a story, or event, so that we can see it more vividly…read it more intelligently…recall the smells that pervaded the experience with intensity. Whatever striking quality that defined that moment comes to life again.
