yesterday, i found this 30 year old slide at the bottom of a camera/gear box. i held it up to the sky and took a photo of it. the image is a picture of my family (mom, dad, big brother and little sister), aunt and cousins - i'm the little blond guy in the middle.
what intrigues me most about this photo is that i am now the same age that my dad is in this picture. its pictures like this which make you realize that photography can help you reflect upon time in a new way. in a sense, i have traded places with my dad - except without the curly hair, big glasses and mustache. that's one of the things i like about photography - it allows me one to slow, reverse, fast forward, study and ponder the passage of time. the end result is depth and growth that would have otherwise been lost.
