Some memories are unforgettable, some memories are likely to forget, and some are hard to remember because of their quality of relinquish. However, memories are the different moments that we instill in our minds. It is so hard for us to wipe them away. Even though, we have a tendency to forget them immediately, trying hard to save them even by remembering a slightest word, scene or a sound is what makes them so special.
To our relief, the new innovative mind of the humans have achieved a new breakthrough, from which we can revise the awesome, bitter-sweet moments of our life and refresh the memory. This new discovery is what we call as a “camera”, at present. Is it not wonderful? How people come up with something new to cover the tracks of their weakness forgetting things?
Nevertheless, photos or snaps are doing a tremendous duty in bringing back our beautiful, special happy and sad moments throughout the life. Indeed, that is why the famous adage goes as “A picture is worth a thousand words”. In reality, the professional photographers are the useful sources that help us in making these moments last. Hence, it is not wrong to say that they are the only powerful ones who can capture the essence of an image that is worth a lifetime for us.
In the meantime, it is arguable that like most of the people think, images are not just a mixture of colors that are caught on a paper. In fact, there is more to that. They simply are something that can evoke our raw emotions or memories inside of us. So what a poet can do by using his playful words, and an author can do by gripping his readers’ imagination are not likely the tasks of a professional photographer. Why? Because a poet’s words can get lost in translation, and an author cannot expect his readers to have the same imagination as his, yet a photographer is the only person who is able to give the exact moment of happiness or sadness, just as it was felt by the owner of that moment. In fact, images can more succinctly represent this world than complicated prose.
Pictures are an important source that connects us to those who came before us. Why it is said so, because any parent would want to keep their child in the same childish way he/she was born. Loveable, immature and most importantly babies are innocent, but the known truth is children would grow, like every person and everything is subjected to change in this world. So to keep hold on to their sweet memories of seeing you as a baby, even though, you grow, the parents would do anything. And the only possibility that is available for them to retain these memories is by taking pictures of your childhood. So why not a picture worth a thousand words?
