James 4:14b what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
I was looking at a friend’s website this morning that mentioned Dickins Christmas Carol and the Ghost of Christmas Past, and I instantly thought that this seems to be the story of photography in general.
Now, I say this about photography which has been my mainstay since I was a child. I have had a camera in my hand since I was twelve. I have recorded most of what was in my presence since I discovered the medium and its ability to capture the moments that surrounded me.
For me, photography has given me the ability to record the moment, to be an artist of sorts, and to remember. The photograph above was in a tube station in London as my wife and I were visiting relatives. There is a much longer story that goes along with this photo and the hundreds of pictures that followed.
