Photographs capture a moment in time and are often the moments we remember because they are captured in a photograph.
The internet is full of photographs captured forever, even those some people wish would disappear forever.
I think I will purposely not include any photographs on this post simply because it is titled “Photographs” and is about photographs and that’s just the kind of mood I am in tonight.
It’s the old candid photographs that often get to me the most. People experiencing a single moment together, their togetherness captured in a single second. Then decades later they appear on the internet. Not only did they not know that single second would be available decades later – perhaps even after they were no longer on this earth – for billions of people to see, they had no concept of the internet, cyberspace or even a computer. They were just experiencing a moment together.
