Resisting the Urge to Make a Documentary of Your Existence


Photographing life for posterity’s sake, if not purely in the name of inspiring travel among others, is best practiced in moderation.

To be careful we don’t overdo the documenting and miss out in the moment is key. Video taping your child walking through some grand city park or trying to photograph every beautiful train car as it passes by ends up leaving those moments passing you by.

A few great photos can be a wonderful way to spark a memory or inspire a little reminiscing, but holding onto them as a way to nudge your brain into remembering it all but still allowing your mind to stuff overflowing with all the good times you had and didn’t bother to pull out your camera to document is a gorgeous little slice of existence.
