“taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” // m. riboud

“a good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.” // e. welty

it’s been said, that in our head-over-heels digital age, that we’ve become a society that has over-shared. there is no longer a need for the TMI disclaimer, because there is nothing that could ever be deemed as too much information. the internet is awash with our dirty laundry. twitter is our confessional and our cheerleader in 140 characters. pinterest tells the world what we love, what we desire, what we need. there is no need to speak, we’ve got it all covered by the touch of the ‘enter’ key.

there is an element of truth to this, of course. yet, i don’t see it as being all bad. though the world has become smaller due to vorsprung durch technik, it has also become lived at a clip that for some, is a bit too quick. that’s why, opting out for a minute, taking just one moment, to take a photo using a free app has fundamentally changed the way i, (and i’m sure a few of you), view this little green and blue marble we live on. sometimes, when you’re moving too fast – taking a photo helps to remind you of who you are, and where you’ve been. it also doesn’t hurt that you get to see the world through the eyes of some extremely stylish people…
