I have been fishing almost every week recently. Most days we have gone out, everyone has hooked something, so it’s fair to say that the fishing has been good, but it hasn’t been great. If you asked, I would say that nothing particularly noteworthy has happened. But when I sit down and start to look through photographs from the past few months, I see that a lot has happened. Nothing noteworthy, perhaps, but a lot of really wonderful details. Things that are in danger of being overlooked.
Sometimes things move pretty fast. Lots of changes, big or small, can make it difficult to keep life in perspective. Nowadays, most of us curate our own personal archives of photographs, and they can be a wonderful tool to help us reflect, to identify some of the things of value in our lives that might otherwise be lost in the noise.
