A personal reminder

A blog post without pictures ...

I've had a really interesting last few days ... a number of new inquiries coming in for new sessions and event.  Working with a previous client to layout a book for the event I shot a short while back and a number of deliveries ...  

Nothing gives me more pride than walking into a house with a piece of art to put on a wall.  

  • It's a record of a brief moment in time.  
  • It's something that will be looked at every day for many many years to come.  
  • It's something that will be added to with further records of events either from me or from others.  
  • It's a great reminder of why I do what I do.

However every now and again something else comes along that knocks the wind out of my sails and stops me in my tracks.  

From time to time I do some work for the local community. Earlier this year I took photos for the local community event. I received an email from the family of one of the years attendants.  A lady who had had travelled some distance to join us and be a part of the evening.  I wasn't aware but she passed away only a short time after wards.  I wasn't aware that I had been the person to take the last pictures, I was the one who has the final image that will last in memories for many years to come.  

The family were asking for copies of a particular picture, which I of course was only too happy to provide.  In the few moments it took me to find it and send it via mail I was reminded that whilst a vast majority of my photography is for happy memories of parties, events and portraits I do much more.  I capture a moment in time that cannot be relived, cannot be reproduced and more over I'm providing lasting memories ...
