i dont get to spend a lot of time with her, but i got to see her for a bit and we chatted about the magazines i lent her. talked about our favorite parts of the magazine, the photography. lil bits and pieces.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

Aaron Siskind 

This quote is wonderful.

I was having a conversation about this with someone not long ago. In the past I’ve been criticised for taking cameras everywhere, especially when I travel, and accused of “not living in the moment” or “not truly experiencing something” because I’m viewing it through a camera lens.

Taking photographs is how I remember so many things that are so so important to me (and for some things, photographs are the only things I have).

Screw anyone that says life through a camera lens is somehow less “real”.
