The missing pictures of our lives

Have you ever noticed that you seem to always want to find a picture of a certain person or certain event and it just doesn’t exist. I have cars I’ve owned that somehow I don’t have pictures of. People I knew and hung out with for years that I don’t have pictures. Events that somehow were photographically free.

It’s odd how we are becoming more and more photogenic in our normal lives but yet we don’t capture what matters.

I’m sure that I am not alone in these thoughts – we can all mourn the lack of photographic evidence that we existed in a certain time or place is lost.
